Welcome back, and it's good to be here. If 2017 wasn't a peak year for this blog, we're starting 2018 with good intentions and hopefully we can get things back on track.
There's much to report in the world of French music during our festive break, and more to look forward to in forthcoming weeks.
For a year that saw fewer posts than previous years, it was heartening to see December 2017 having the highest number of visitors we have ever had. By quite a margin. Thanks for coming and we really are grateful.
Things will get busier here in 2018, so if you've been one of our new visitors, I hope you find reason to visit again.
As always, you can contact us at johnkilbrideAThotmailDOTcom, with the appropriate punctuation where you'd expect it to be.
I'm always pleased to hear from record companies, PR companies and promoters, so do drop me an email. I'm always keen to hear new things, and relay information about acts I already know and love.
The blog is also on Twitter as @viveleroq, although that's pretty much just an autofeed when we update with a new article. You can usually find me on my personal Twitter account quicker, @karnag
If you're around Facebook, remember to like the French Music Podcast UK page, where you can get regular updates with both fresh and vintage French music.
Thanks as always to the good folks at Oui Love Music From France .
Merci et à bientôt,
