Françoise Hardy interview on BBC Radio 6 Music now on BBC Sounds

Following the sad passing of Françoise Hardy, BBC Radio 6 Music has once again made available the last interview that she did with the station.

Recorded in 2018, Françoise spoke to Amy Lamé about her life, her career and her final studio album, Personne d’autre.

Her son, musician Thomas Dutronc, announced on social media the death of his 80 year old mother, who was born in Paris in 1944.

Hardy burst on to the music scene in 1962 and became a cultural icon who inspired the likes of Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan. Known for her melancholy ballads, she symbolised France’s Yé-yé (yeah yeah) pop movement, so-called because of its nod to English music.

Her most famous songs included All the Girls and Boys (Tous les garçons et les filles), It Hurts to Say Goodbye (Comment te dire adieu) and My Friend the Rose (Mon amie la rose).

Amy Lamé – With French legend Françoise Hardy from BBC Radio 6 Music is available to listen on BBC Sounds.
