Tour de France English language radio coverage?

We're planning on attending a couple of stages next year and then vacationing elsewhere in France and want to know if there's any chance we can keep up with live coverage or results in English on the radio? Also, for anyone attending this year, love to see a detailed trip report with tips. Thanks for any info.

Tour Tracker is a great app for your smart phone or iPad - has details of the route, where the break/chasers/peloton are, who is is the break/chasing, a rolling feed giving news of latest incidents (eg punctures or crashes) and racing action, plus statistics on all the riders/teams/previous stages.

If you are following a particular team, most have Twitter accounts that tell you what's happening with their riders, especially if they are in a break or at the front of the peloton.

Thanks guys. Glued to the TV with Paul and Phil's brilliant commentary here in the US but so excited to actually be there and just worried won't have a clue what's going on. Tour Tracker app and Twitter sounds like great options.
