Radio Campus Paris
The audio quality isn't quite as good (96kpbs versus 128), but I think I found a French online radio station that I even like better than Nouvelle Scene. The station Radio Campus Paris features more in the way of funk, hip-hop, and electronic music, along with a healthy sprinkling of indie rock, and is apparently run by college students. My only gripe: they need to update the little now playing box - it hasn't been changed since June, and I have no idea who I'm listening to most of the time.
