Zoë Baxter

DJ/Radio presenter

Zoë Baxter started DJing at parties in 2000 and progressed to Internet radio and then community radio. She has always had a keen interest in East Asian cinema and cuisine and this lead her to investigate East Asian music. Zoë collects vinyl with a specialist interest in 1960’s ‘Asia Beat’, Reggae and Rhythm & Blues.

In 2005 she presented and produced Ni Hao Chinatown parts 1 & 2 for the London community arts radio station Resonance FM focusing on the Save Chinatown Campaign and the history of Chinese immigration in London. 

Following on from this Zoë has presented and produced 5 series of Lucky Cat for Resonance FM as well as documentary features on Chinagrass (folk music from the grasslands of China) and Heroines of Hong Kong and Chinese Cinema.

Lucky Cat radio show focuses on East Asian culture with a mixture of music from Zoë’s vast collection of vinyl. Past shows have included an interview with legendary Chinese Jamaican Reggae producer Clive Chin, live performances by Beijing rappers, Korean punk bands and up and coming British Chinese artists. Food is an integral element with guests being asked to try delights from the Dim Sum Lunchbox each week.

Zoë regularly DJs at club nights, film festivals and other cultural events.

She is passionate about Chinese cinema and last year held a Q&A discussing the wuxia genre after a screening of the Zhang Yimou film Hero at the Prince Charles Cinema in London. 

Zoë has contributed to BBC Lancashire’s specialist music programme On the Wire and has also written for the BBC China web site.

2011 was an important year for Zoë as she travelled to China for the first time. Expect to hear all about her trip to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong in the forthcoming series of Lucky Cat.

Series 6 of Lucky Cat begins on Saturday 15th October 15:30 on Resonance 104.4FM.
