Radio FG (since February 2013, formerly FG DJ Radio) is a French-language radio station that began broadcasting from Paris on 98.2 MHz in the FM band in 1981. It is a radio station that exclusively broadcasts House, Techno, Dance and R'n'B music.


Radio FG was founded in 1981 as a community radio rooted in the Parisian gay scene and in support of the gay community. The 'FG' initials were said to vary in meaning from "Fréquence Gaie" (Gay Frequency) to "Futur Génération" (Future Generation) to "Filles et Garçons" (Girls and Boys).

During its initial four years of broadcasting, the station faced financial struggles as well as internal conflicts, but managed to survive. As time went by, the station, facing an identity crisis, distanced itself from its social activism and re-defined itself as a dedicated electronic music station.

In 2001 Radio FG abandoned its community radio status to become a private radio station. In September 2003 Radio FG became known as FG DJ Radio and broadened its spectrum of music to include R'n'B and Raï music.

Today, the station broadcasts throughout the Parisian suburbs and in other major cities around France. In September 2004 the radio started a free webradio service called Underground FG.

The website now offers 6 different live streams: FG DJ Radio, Underground FG, FG Clubbing, FG Remix, FG House Chic, and FG Dance by Hakimakli; along with a 6-hour-delayed stream of its main station called FG +6H targeted to its North American audience. There's also a version of the regular FG DJ Radio for Belgium now: Radio FG Belgique. Formerly streams are Vintage FG (which was playing classics) and Energy Burnmix FG.

In the Winter of 2013, one of the DJ's from the Radio FG USA division branched off and started his own USA Based station called Radio DJ USA, aka RadioDJUSA, quickly reached 10k Twitter fans in 3 months. Featured DJ's include Alexander Technique, Junior Sanchez's Brobot Radio, Dr. Kucho! from Spain, Promise Land, Daddys Grove, Delayers,Chocolate Puma, Blaqwell and many other top producers from around the globe. Radio DJ USA was the first online station to broadcast "live" real time DJ Sets to mobile and PC devices around the world. As of late 2013, over 80 countries have tuned in to Radio DJ USA.
