A family tradition is to listen to the new year arrive around the world. In times past, this was done with a shortwave radio my dad has from his childhood. Now the internet allows one to do the searching far more efficiently and quickly.We missed most of Oceania and Australia, but eventually  I’ll be bringing you links to catch new years in various countries, with interruptions for family events since it is also my father’s birthday.

10:00 EST brings new years to places such as Tokyo,Japan and Seoul, South Korea.

After a major delay we are back.

4:00 brings new years to Moscow, Minsk, Kenya, ect.

We are listing to the Voice of Russia in hopes of catching the new year countdown.

Next is Eastern Europe and Central/Eastern Africa.

You have a variety of options:

Perhaps a station from South Africa.

Or a station from Ukraine.



Or maybe Lativa?

We’re going to try South Africa.
