French Radio on your mobile phone in 9 languages

I had already posted a blog post when RFI had launched its service in English and French on mobile phones in 2009. The service is still on, and working well, and RFI has just launched the broadcasting of news bulletins in six new languages: Farsi, Hausa, Mandarin, Chinese, Spanish, Swahili and Vietnamese.  Thanks to this service, anyone can listen to RFI and Monte Carlo Doualiya (Arabic) using any mobile phone at the price of a normal call.(no 3G, 4G or WiFi networks needed).

You'll find below the list of phone numbers you need to call to get access to the service:

832.225.5397 RFI in English (latest news bulletin)

832.225.5394 RFI in Farsi (latest news bulletin)

832.225.5399 RFI in French (live, 24/7)

832.225.5398 RFI in French (latest news bulletin)

832.225.5392 RFI in Hausa (latest news bulletin)

832.225.5391 RFI in Mandarin Chinese (latest news bulletin)

832.225.5395 RFI in Spanish (latest news bulletin)

832.225.5393 RFI in Swahili (latest news bulletin)

832.225.5390 Monte Carlo Doualiya in Arabic (live, 24/7)

832.225.5389 Monte Carlo Doualiya in Arabic (latest news bulletin)

The service is very easy to use and allows you to stay tuned to RFI's shows anytime and anywhere.

I found an app called TuneIn Radio (Android & iPhone) that has radio stations in tons of languages (including French!); I listen to RTL and Europe 1 all the time.

Nice, useful info. That said, I hope that those who take advantage of it will also save a little listening time for my French language music station from the states: French Robot Radio @ FrenchRobotRadio.com: all French language music, all the time.
