In celebration of the New Year we will be playing 10 hours of Auld Lang Syne by the immortal Robert Burns. Tune in on Highlander Radio to hear this Robert Burns festival of his most famous poem featuring over 100 musicians singing this timeless song. Have a Happy New Year!

So you don't understand the Lyrics?

We twa hae ran about the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine,
But we’ve wander’d monie a weary fit
Sin’ auld lang syne.

Then read on...

The end of a year often signals new beginnings – gym memberships and dating apps see an uncharacteristic surge in sign ups – but one thing that has never, and will unlikely change, is Robert Burns’ Auld Lang Syne. It’s pretty much accepted that most don’t know all the lyrics, but does anyone really know what they mean either? Here is a breakdown of each verse and chorus in the original 18th century Scots along with its translation.

Happy New Year to everyone here!!
I can’t believe it is 2020. To me it feels like it just turned 2000. Yikes!
Time does fly. Looking forward to the new year and I hope it is a fantastic one for all of you!

May each of you have a blessed 2020! Sounds strange to say "2020" doesn't it?

Lord bless!

What is strange is that with this new year I came to realize that I graduated high school 50 years ago!
Talk about time going bye!

Shadows, if you and I aren't careful, we may get old!!

It does fairly boggle the mind, doesn't it?!

The years keep moving and it is amazing for me to think 20 years ago we were celebrating the year 2000 and if our computers would even run the next day.

The kids are all grown now like in the blink of an eye. Enjoy each and every moment and we hope everyone has a wonderful 2020. Let's all take a moment to wish a fond farewell to our many members who have passed away. We hope we gave them just a bit of happiness with the music, songs and stories that this site provides.
