Petit Dejeuner Club, PRP’s latest curated show addition, will be available for your listening pleasure on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 10 am.
Host of the show Brooke Carlson will introduce listeners to a breakfast blend of music from around the world. Brooke’s playlists are French-focused, and many are heavily influenced by Yé-yé,” a genre of pop music popularized in France in the early 1960s.
The Yé-yé genre found stylistic inspiration from Baroque, Eastern, jazz and French chanson genres, and its echoes are still heard in today’s modern music scene. The term Yé-yé is literally derived from the phrase, “Yeah! Yeah!,” a term popularized by bands like the Beatles in the ‘60s.
Along with Yé-yé, Petit Dejeuner Club explores all kinds of complementary international genres, from Brazilian Bossa Nova to Cambodian Psychedelic Rock.
Brooke fell in love with community radio when volunteering as a DJ at her college radio station. Her first gig was a show from 2-4 a.m. on Tuesday mornings, and she’s been hooked ever since.
Brooke has been exploring international genres of music for several years and fell in love with Yé-yé after hearing Françoise Hardy’s 1962 album, “Tous les garcons et les filles.”
Tune in to Petit Dejeuner Club every Sunday at 10:00 AM on 99.1 FM or stream here.
