On Morning Brew today we meet world renowned choral conductor Peter Philips at 10.10. Peter is the founder and director of the multi Grammy nominated British choral ensemble The Tallis Scholars, and he’s in town to conduct local group Tallis Vocalis this week. At 10.40 we welcome back author and broadcaster Xu Xi to talk about her latest work and two huge literary anniversaries that occur this week (one is today). After 11, cricket man Tim Cutler returns to his regular weekly spot after a couple of months (drying out), for all the news that’s fit to broadcast. At 11.40 all things French...in Hong Kong...with RTL’s Correspondent Philippe Dova. At 12.10, “that man with no shirt” Pilates Athlete Jason Clark will be with with us on Facebook Live. Today is World Menopause Day, so we’ll talk hormones, and how to blast your body. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
On Thursday's Morning Brew, we slip a little deeper into the twilight zone with ccommentator and bar room Svengali, Steve Vines, at his usual time of 10.10. Amid another week of being assimilated by The Borg, two container ships collided some days ago spilling a massive amount of (the very controversial substance) palm oil into the sea. A crack environmental official has said that there are only sporadic patches of the oil left in Hong Kong''s waters. Stamp! Next! The reason for that, however (as all the brilliant people who've been on their hands and knees cleaning up will tell you), is because most of it is caked all over beaches and inside ex-living sea creatures. Quite rightly though the Government's priority is to keep a tight record of how much it spends cleaning up...its gazetted beaches. Meanwhile, on Lamma...At 11.30 our MB vet, Dr. David Gething will be here to talk about plastic surgery for pets, and marijuana (Scooby Dooby Doo). At 12.10 we welcome back author Paul French on the line from Holland. Paul wrote the tantalising best seller "Midnight in Peking", and today we'll find out about his latest work "Bloody Saturday" which chronicles what he calls "Shanghai's darkest day". We wrap up today at 12.40 with some live music of a most eclectic kind from JUNK!. Join is on Facebook Live.
