And I will hear something different. Finally.
Laval is a small city. In a very rural part of France.
Up until a few weeks ago, I was reminded of that everyday in the car. I don't have a cd player in my car, just the radio. Which is how I got the reminders. The selection of radio stations was REALLY limited. Religious and all talk, pop and all commercials, another pop and all commercials, 'alternative' (read still pop but heavier guitar) and mostly commercials, public radio and all news, classical so mostly good but sometimes too much opera, elevator music and I never left it on long enough to know if it was mostly commercials. That's about it.
And then, for some strange magical radio-land reason, one night, at midnight (I'm not kidding), there were 15 more stations. Most of which are just more of the same but there's one jazz station with little talk and fewer commercials. So between that and the classical station and the public radio every once in a while so I vaguely know what's going on in the world, I like what I hear when I drive my car.
