This Monday, July 1st, we learned of the death of host Jean-Pierre Descombes, who died on June 30th from Parkinson’s disease. For his first show on Europe 1 in the 4pm – 6pm slot, Eliott Deval invited Marc Menant to pay tribute to the man with whom he had co-hosted “Les jeux de 20 heures” on FR3.

Why are you in this studio Marc, because you collaborated with Jean-Pierre Descombes” introduced Eliott Deval. “I presented ‘The 20 Hour Games’ for three years, the last three years of the ’20 Hour Games’” recalls Marc Menant before continuing: “And Jean-Pierre was the one in the crowd.” “I must say that contact with the public was probably his way of looking at existence, that is, giving love, giving complicity, being generous. He is the most charming boy I have ever met.

“It was a brotherly embrace”

The man who previously worked for Europe 1 continues his praise: “In this profession, there are sometimes little hatreds, jealousies […] We didn’t always pat each other on the back. But with him, it was a brotherly hug. He was the boy who paid attention to everything, and had an overflowing sense of humor. We spent our time crying with laughter.

Eliott Deval flatters Marc Menant: “But with you too we spend our time crying with laughter” before telling: “I called you and told you about the passing of Jean-Pierre Descombes and I told you ‘come and pay tribute to him’ because I am sure that this voice, this show speaks to hundreds of thousands of listeners…“. It was then that Marc Menant remembered the audiences achieved by the program: “There were 5 million viewers every night.

The new holder of the 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. slot, for two weeks, on Europe 1, asks his guest: “What was the core of the show at that time?“Marc Menant then explains: “There were three guests who were often songwriters, singers. We were the first to welcome Celine Dion. We welcomed Richard Cocciante. Then you had Jean Amadou, this whole bunch of people who made humor their daily life. We made fun of events and there were French games, today the language is being lost.

Marc Menant pretends to get angry: “There was no question of inclusive language” before continuing more calmly: “For example, it was interpreting an adjective and all that under the supervision of Master Capello.“.
