What are young people’s links with radio? What role does radio play in the lives of adolescents? By focusing on the situation in France – where radio programmes mix ‘free radio’ in the evening with music, and are highly listened-to by young people – this article examines the structure of youth listening reception. The links listeners make with presenters and with people who phone in, as revealed by the study, suggest the ‘in-between’ status of radio for youth. On radio, adolescents find a space to express ‘youth problems’ (sic) and to learn about others’ experiences.
