Johnny Hallyday – Fans of Johnny Hallyday continue to keep their idol alive. In Chartres (Eure-et-Loir), a radio station broadcasts Johnny Hally day 24/7. It is unique in France.
This Wednesday morning, a mass was celebrated at the Madeleine church in Paris, to honor the memory of Johnny Hallyday. On June 15, he would have turned 79.
His many fans do not forget him. When they ride, “it’s for Johnny,” they say. And when they get together, it’s obviously to listen to him together. So what could be better than to tune into the radio dedicated to their idol?
A group of bikers, formed the day after the death of Johnny Hallyday, wants to keep his memory alive. This is also the whole spirit of this radio. “It’s not guinguette”, “it makes us discover certain things and it’s always a pleasure to be able to listen to it where we want and when we want”, they say.
Behind these shows, there is another passionate about the singer, who opens the door of his studio: a room in his house in Chartres. David Porcher has created his radio, broadcast for the moment on the Internet, in full confinement. That was two years ago. Since then, he has found his audience.
This computer scientist by profession calls on animators, all volunteers. He takes care of the programming. The radio is expected to get a frequency on the FM band next January.
