With Adrien

Bonjour Minnesota features music and culture from France and francophone countries. Regions of France are explored: Paris and its many styles; southern France and its separate language. Program are often centered on significant dates and special dates are highlighted: Valentine's Day with music about love; Christmas music in December.

The program serves the French, francophone and francophile communities. Programs are broadcast in French with English translation. We often hear, "We don't understand French, but we love your program."
