Show Notes:
This week's show featured music from all over Asia to celebrate the Lunar New Year, along with some new releases and previews of upcoming concerts. Yes, I know it's primarily a Chinese holiday, not an Okinawan one...but I took the opportunity to play Okinawan music anyway. Happy year of the monkey!

# Our cover song of the week was Shang Shang Typhoon's wonderful version of the Beatles' "Let It Be."
