The Sounds of Summer

The temperatures are rising here in the northern hemisphere, so it’s time to check out what music people are blaring out of car windows, clubs and on stereos at the beach. On today’s music show we give you our predictions for this summer's hits.

Also on the show: the king of French pop is proving he’s still got it. Etienne Daho is taking over Paris with three shows in the space of a week.

And forever Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young: the US folk rock super-group have made an album filled with the best moments of their legendary 1974 reunion tour.
