1. How did the idea for the radio show come about?
The idea came from Nicolas Lim, the cultural attaché of the French Embassy.

2. What is the main purpose of the show? What is its format?
The purpose of Cafe Dantrey is to share French culture by way of music, and we talk about it in Khmer language.

First, we discuss about a French group or artist (by Lida and Sarah), then we also introduce a Francophone singer – an artist from any country who sings in French. (With Ta Rethro, from Quebec).
We also talk about what’s going on at the French Cultural center (exhibitions, cinema, etc.) with Sopoi our technician.

It is important for us (the show staff) and for the audience, to have fun, because it is only when we feel good that we can really communicate.

3. Who participates in and produces the show?
The participants are cited above, it’s produced by the French Embassy.

4. What stations broadcast it?
FM 103 in Phnom Penh, 12:10 to 1pm. Also FM 100.5 in Siem Reap and Sihanoukville.

5. What has audience reaction been so far?
Rethro: A motodop in front of the CCF told me he really liked it, and that he listened to it on purpose because it was French music, he said he could now understand why some people liked French music.

Lida: a Cambodian friend of mine who lived in France told me she likes it because she can listen to the music she used to listen to in France and then she also discovers other artists in the francophone music part.

Sarah: A Cambodian friend of mine told me his father who speaks French liked it, he was stunned that his father knew some of the singers we had talked about!

    J’avais espéré partager quelques choix à partir de l’exposition par radio. (i.e. ‘PodCast’) Je regrette que la musique soit sous copyright.

    Cependant, vous pouvez contacter les créateurs d’exposition par l’intermédiaire de l’email, qui pourrait pouvoir partager officieusement une copie de leur émission.
