Get to Know a CJAM Show: Pardon My French

plab3Show: Pardon my French, Thursdays 2:30-4:00
Host: Sarah Morris

Tell me a little about your show:
“Pardon my French is a music variety show that brings together French music from around the world for an English audience. I feel it can be difficult to access and understand French music if you don’t come from that background, so my show helps to expose people to new music that they otherwise wouldn’t have.”

How did you get started with CJAM:
“I was signed up before I started University at 18 years old during Welcome Week. When I started University I thought I was going to become a teacher, but through volunteering and radio my life has completely changed direction.”

What was the first album you ever bought:
“I bought a punk compilation when I was about 14 that had over 30 bands on it. It was so exciting to see an album that had so many artists I have never heard of before.”

Name one song that would represent your show:
“Notre Place – Paul Demers. It’s a cheesy over the top anthem celebrating the Franco-Ontario community. I want to represent different French communities around the world, and I also like a good dose of cheesy music on my show.”
