David Kessler is a radio director in France. At least, that is what I gather from a French article on him at http://archquo.nouvelobs.com/cgi/articles?ad=medias/20051212.OBS8546.html&host=http://permanent.nouvelobs.com/. Since I don't actually speak French, I can only gather from what appear to be cognates that David Kessler has some interest in France Culture. He said, "La préoccupation de l'audience à n'importe quel prix n'est pas la priorité de France Culture, mais nous devons essayer de gagner et nous pouvons gagner de nouveaux auditeurs". I couldn't agree more. Well said!
