Translated from French-Gure Irratia (“Our radio” in Basque) is a French radio station broadcasting from Ustaritz (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) to the French Basque Country. It has two FM frequencies which allow it to cover the main cities of this cultural region, starting with the “BAB” municipalities (Bayonne, Anglet and Biarritz).
Ustaritz is a town in the traditional Basque province of Labourd, now a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France. It is located on the river Nive some 13 kilometres inland from Bayonne. Ustaritz was the location of the assembly of local Basque leaders before the French Revolution.
France, in Western Europe, encompasses medieval cities, alpine villages and Mediterranean beaches. Paris, its capital, is famed for its fashion houses, classical art museums including the Louvre and monuments like the Eiffel Tower. The country is also renowned for its wines and sophisticated cuisine. Lascaux?s ancient cave drawings, Lyon?s Roman theater and the vast Palace of Versailles attest to its rich history.
