Translated from French-Contact FM is a French radio station belonging to the group La Voix (Rossel). It operates in Hauts-de-France with a studio in Lille (formerly in Tourcoing). It began broadcasting its programs in the Ardennes in April 2008. The station organizes dropouts for more specific information in different geographic sectors (Lille metropolis, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Littoral, Picardie and Oise), and dropouts in each city also at the time of advertisements.
Lille is the capital of the Hauts-de-France region in northern France, near the border with Belgium. A cultural hub and bustling university city today, it was once an important merchant center of French Flanders, and many Flemish influences remain. The historic center, Vieux Lille, is characterized by 17th-century brick town houses, cobbled pedestrian streets and the large central square, Grand Place.
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.
