Radio France in chaos, concerts cancelled, strikes abound, head of music ‘is sacked’main
The situation at Radio France is described today as ‘out of control’. Musicians are raging at the cancellation of two orchestral concerts this weekend, five unions have gone on strike, the head of radio, Mattheiu Gallet, is under official investigation for a lavish office redecoration and the head of music, Jean-Pierre Rousseau, has not been seen at the radio all week.
Two inside sources tell Slipped Disc that Rousseau (pictured) has been sacked – after less than a year in the job. There has been no official word on his position.
