Paris, Trabendo, February 27, 2024 First concert for the radio in what feels like an eternity, but given everything we missed in the past five years, it seemed like a good time to get back in the game.

The 10 best albums of 2023, according to Gus. Here, at Real Rebel Radio, we only have one guiding principle: we only talk about the music we enjoy. For a long time, I asked myself why we have this policy, especially when I see how successful the ‘worst of’ lists are every single year. Why [...]

Les 10 meilleurs albums de l'année Version Gus. And the song remains the same... 2021 was just a copy-paste of 2020 with a little more depression.
