It's Wednesday on Morning Brew and in keeping with the nippy weather and to get all seasonal, we begin today with...The Snowman. Scott Ligertwood of Scotty & Lulu fame will join us at 10.10 to talk about his upcoming gig as the narrator for the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong's annual performance of Raymond Briggs' children's classic, of course along with the movie itself. After 11.30, RTL's man in Hong Kong Philippe Dova will be back with us for all things French...In Hong Kong, plus a couple more cheesy French pop tracks. After 12, The Pilates Athlete Jason Clark will be back to turn our studio into a backstreet TV studio and gym. Join us on Facebook Live.
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.
