Happy Hogmanay!

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 31 December, 2008

As Scotland (and the rest of Britain) reaches the New Year with the Americas just a few hours behind, Radio Riel offers you a selection of largely traditional Celtic music to cross into 2009 — and we’ll play Auld Lang Syne at midnight.

Despite all the happenings in the world at large and at home, we wish all our listeners a happy, peaceful and prosperous 2009, in-world and in all the other worlds we inhabit. ‘A Guid New Year to ane an’ a’!’

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

For auld lang syne, my jo,

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,

Bliadhna Mhath Ur!

- Elrik Merlin
