The Year of the Wood Goat is just weeks away and 988 has got heaps of goodies in store for its listeners.

The local Chinese radio station recently launched its latest Chinese New Year (CNY) album titled Xi Qi Yang Yang Guo Hao Nian (Brand New Happiness for the Year of the Goat), recently.

It is the station’s seventh CNY album and comprises four new songs and an eight-minute medley. The CNY songs are sung by nine 988 announcers: Sam Mak, Anson Kow, Cheryl Lee, KK Wong, Athena Tan, Jason Poon, PM Wang, Cassey Soo and Min.

The album is only available via roadshows and special CNY packages with Best Western i-City Hotel as well as Super Foods instant beverage.

i-City, 988’s official partner for the album, was also the location for the CNY music video shoot.
