29th November 2010 – Happy Hour episode 98

Ollia invites fellow radio producer Terence Carbin, into the studio for a chat.
This quintessential elegant modern dandy, fights with a sword and makes his own 18th century costumes…
Great fan of Chevalier Saint-George, the only mixed race man to enter the upper echelons of French society (his mother was a slave),Terence sometimes gives guided tours of Paris (wearing the costume) and writes articles on all manner of things from Cyrano de Bergerac’s nose to recent book reviews.

His regular radio programmes feature interviews about the history of immigration in France
See his blogs (in French) – great photos of the costumes:
