Bonjour Minnesota features music and culture from France and francophone countries. Regions of France are explored: Paris and its many styles; southern France and its separate language. Program are often centered on significant dates and special dates are highlighted: Valentine's Day with music about love; Christmas music in December.
The program serves the French, francophone and francophile communities. Programs are broadcast in French with English translation. We often hear, "We don't understand French, but we love your program."
Georgette reported on events of interest at local institutions as well as visiting artists and personalities. She interviewed personalities passing through the Twin Cities like Paul Renoir, grandson of the painter; Pierre Bensussan, French guitarist of international renown; and, many others.
Georgette also took advantage of her travels. She reported on the French influence in St. Petersburg, Russia and music and culture from Senegal in French-speaking Africa.
