In this edition of the BBC’s programme “PM”, Pete Myers introduces us to the great French chanson singer Juliette Gréco. From singing in the streets as a child, she became the high priestess of the Paris Left Bank at the height of the existentialist Sixties.

Before joining us at Radio Netherlands in 1976, Pete Myers hosted BBC programmes like “Late Night Extra” and “PM” and spoke with some of the greatest artists in musical and theatre entertainment passing through London in the early 1970’s. This recording is from his personal collection.
