Today on Morning Brew, more tales of the pretty-much-expected at 10.10 with Steve Vines. Join us as usual with your email comments. After 11 we meet the fabulous Habanera Saxophone Quartet, who are here from Paris to perform with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong in...”Saxiland”, tomorrow at City Hall. Our Vet Dr. David Gething is still recovering in France after completing his huge point to point triathlon, so one again at 11.40 we welcome Dr. Jane McNae, who’s an expert animal physio’. We jump species after 12 with arch manipulator Chris Watts, who will talk all about knees, and of course ice and rosemary oil. Then, the happiest of endings at 12.40 as JUNK! will be holding his regular Thursday matinée musicale on air and on Facebook Live.
James Ross here, and in Phil's seat for one day only on Morning Brew. This morning we have an award winner - Ivy Ngeow - winner of the Proverse Prize for an unpublished publishable book - and hers is Cry of the Flying Rhino.We'll find out all about that after 1030. After 11 Merrin Pearse swops to Monday for one week only, to give us the latest environmental updates, and Jim Gould, Head of Radio 3 will tell us about tonight's launch of Operation Santa Claus 2017. Later in the show we talk to an amazing guy - Simon Holliday. On Saturday he swam around Hong Kong island in just over 12.5 hours. Why did he do it, and what's it all for? Simon will be with us around 12.40. Plus all the best in music!
