Swanky Sunday: The Hotel Costes Series

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Sunday, 29 March, 2009

And now for something completely different on a Sunday!

At 239 Rue St. Honoré in Paris is one of the city’s most fabulous hotels…the Hôtel Costes. The Costes is luxurious and decadent, but its bar and courtyard café are so well known that they have inspired a collection of music.

Welcome to Swanky Sunday and the music of Stéphane Pompougnac’s “Hôtel Costes” series. Today Radio Riel features all eleven albums from start to finish…one to eleven.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

For more information on the Caledon Library, current exhibits and the work of Second Life reference libraries in general, please visit the Caledon Library Web site, or one of their locations in-world.

You can listen to the program now at, or simply visit any Caledon Library branch in-world and press Play on your embedded music player.
