In the event you're new to this Chinese New Years madness, we want to assure you our studios have not plunged into a state of war, because towards the end of this podcast, you can hear Beijing going up in smoke outside our studio. Nothing to worry about - just children celebrating the holidays by lobbing fireworks at passing cars (and each other). Our sound insulation is reasonably good, but even it has limits when faced with the explosive awesomeness of the Year of the Bull.

Moving on, our film for today is to China as Bon Jovi is to Hong Kong: something the locals continue to enjoy long after the world has moved on. This is an intermediate-level recording, but our prize makes it worth puzzling over: one lucky winner will get a month of free premium access to Popup Chinese. So listen up and get your guesses in to echo@popupchinese.com. You can't win if you don't play.

Not sure about this either. Happy New Year though, with hopes Echo didn't force feed you all jiaozi.
