Yo La La! The French Rap Podcast is 2 years old!

That's right, exactly 2 years ago I uploaded my first show about French hip-hop and rap in particular. Sound quality was horrendous, I had no idea where it would take me, but I'm glad I kept doing it and haven't missed a monthly show in 2 years' time.

A big thank you to Yo La La! listeners and a big welcome to anyone who may be interested in "le 'ip-'op".

The last two shows are about French female rappers (classics and rookies) and the next one will be about French rappers' coverage of the upcoming presidential election.

Les Aventures d'Antoine Doinel

Hey everyone,

I am trying to get ahold of the theme from Francois Truffaut's Les 400 Coups.  The only place I have been able to find it is on amazon.com as an expensive compilation of soundtrack snippets from the Adventures of Antoine Doinel series.  Ive also searched by the composer, Jean Constantin, and come up empty handed.  So, if any of you out there has the soundtrack for Les 400 Coups and would be willing to share the theme/prologue music, I'd be most appreciative.

You can reply here, or email me, my adress is my lj username @ hotmail.com

Merci d'avance!
