The radio show just finished a couple of minutes ago and I'm already looking forward to listening to it again, next Sunday (from home!!!).
le masque et la plume which radio host is Jérôme Garcin.
It's been aired way before I was born and underwent multiple changes over the decades, I guess, but it's the same principle: theater and movies hence the mask, books hence the plume (feather?).
Radio manages something that TV has never, or so rarely, in spite of the visual in addition to the audio: it captures, it grabs attention by the very nature of what the subject is about.
There used to be (I think he semi-retired a couple of years ago) a show on TV B.Pivot hosted but it never got my attention as much as this radio program does; tension due to cameras around maybe.
Plus they really don't hesitate to tell their mind about anything: if what they saw or read sucked, they do let know, there and then but it's never vulgar and always documented and argued.
They disagree with one another too. But there again it never turns into a fight.
I'd like to attend a show some day. It's recorded in public on Thursdays and at la maison de la radio at Paris (of course).
It's a pledge.
