Translated from French-Radio Béton is a local French associative radio station created in 1984, broadcasting its programs on Tours and a large part of the department of Indre-et-Loire, on the frequency 93.6 FM. Its creation is contemporary with the free radio movement of the 1980s. Its longevity is due to broadcasting choices resolutely turned towards musical plurality, to a constant involvement in local cultural life.
Tours is a university town between France's Cher and Loire rivers. Once a Gallic-Roman settlement, today it's a university town and a traditional gateway for exploring the chateaux of the Loire Valley region. Major landmarks include the cathedral, Saint-Gatien, whose flamboyant Gothic facade is flanked by towers with 12th-century bases and Renaissance tops.
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.
