Below are recordings from 42 different half hour radio program transcription discs c.1952-1955 from The French Broadcasting System in North America - Paris Star Time. The programs have been broken up into 347 individual songs. You can view the labels of the entire collection here.

All these songs were recorded live in the radio studio, most with the accompaniment of Roger Roger and his orchestra. As such, they represent unique versions of each song, available only from these transcriptions.

FLASH!! October 10, 2009 - I just found another box of French Broadcasting radio trascriptions, these being 12" discs from the early 1970s - "Let's Swop Pop". Click here to see what I have recorded. I am slowly filling in this new page with fresh recordings. Already have a couple songs by Nicoletta, and even Bridget Bardot singing the Harley Davidson song. Enjoy!

Please note that I do not speak French and my interpretation of some or most of the song titles might not be correct. If you want to make corrections, you can EMAIL ME with comments. Also, I can compile a CD with 20-25 of your favorites from this collection and mail it off to you for $15, including shipping and handling.
