Lucky Cat: Madam Miaow on Resonance 104.4FM Tonight

Madam Miaow, AKA Anna Chen, takes over the Lucky Cat hour on London radio station Resonance FM at 9pm tonight Tuesday 10th February, bringing cultural and political chat into your home. Not that my usual sophistimicated readers require my witteration to refundicate their erudition on home turf. Would I even think that?

I’ll be talking about a range of topics from Anna May Wong — including material I didn’t have time to cover in my recent Radio 4 profile of the Hollywood legend — to the 5th anniversary of the Morecambe Bay disaster when 23 Chinese cocklepickers died in icy waters off the north east coast of England.

What happened to the surviving families? How does the status of the unauthorised workers contribute to their vulnerability, and what can the government do to ensure there are no more tragedies like Morecambe Bay waiting to happen? How does the slogan, “British Jobs For British Workers” impact on these migrant workers?

My guests are Jasper Sharp — east Asian film expert — and Merlene Emerson who has helped raise funds for the victims' families and campaigns on migrants rights in the UK.

You can join in by phoning in: 0207 407 1210

Resonance 104.4 fm is the world’s first radio art station, established by London Musicians’ Collective. It provides a radical alternative to the universal formulae of mainstream broadcasting and does it brilliantly.

You can listen live to Resonance over the Internet worldwide in two formats: Real Audio and MP3 (at high quality for broadband and low quality for dial-up). Either click on the MP3 or Real Audio links on the website frontpage or click on the listen page for more information.

Thanks to Zoe Baxter who normally hosts Lucky Cat

Although i am sure you won't need it as you'll do brilliantly, but good luck!

Thank you, Mrs M. Had a fab time. Jasper and Merlene were a great balance and added lots to the show.

Had so much fun we had a drink(s) afterwards and almost missed the last tube. A very interesting little station. Last outpost of bohos and "heads".

Hello Madam Miaow,

I missed your show! I was doing an open mic.

I wrote a song about the Chinese at Morecambe Bay based on a phone call made to his loved one in China just before this person drowned. It's called "My Only Dream". If you'd like an Mp3, please send an email to kien@kienlim.com and I will send you a copy.

Best wishes,
