Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Year of The Horse!

I'm very pleased to announce that I have contributed a Year of the Horse mix to this Saturday's BBC Radio Lancashire show On The Wire.  My mix will air this Saturday 1st February at midnight and you can listen via the iPlayer live or for a week after. I had great fun compiling the mix, there are plenty of horse songs, one pony, a couple of donkeys and a cowboy!  I recently found this wonderful song about a horse by Memphis Minnie, I couldn't fit it into the mix but here it is for you.

(Picture shown above is from this great blog post about the Chinese American menu collection at the National Museum of American History.)

I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year of the Horse!  恭禧发财!
Wishing you a year filled with happiness and good health!
