Paris taxi drivers call FIP the taxi driver's radio. FIP (or France Inter-Paris) is the best of the state-owned Radio France stations.

FIP is a very eclectic mix of music, no commercials, and the trademark sulky, sexy air personalities. These ladies, known as "Les Fipettes", specialize in cooing a traffic report to calm you as they explain that you're stuck in a 24 KM, 3-hour jam. A typical set could segue Stravinsky, Pink Floyd, Billie Holliday, Simply Red, Beck. And don't forget "Jazz FIP" for the evening drive.

If you liked the music mix and sound of, say, Nina Joy on KDKB back in the 70s, you'll like FIP.
