James Ross in for Phil once more. This morning we preview the next month of great arts and entertainment as the Hong Kong Arts Festival 香港藝術節 gets underway on Friday. Tisa Ho, Executive Director will be on the show today, and telling us about some of the delights we can expect, including Grammy-winning Jazzer Cecile McLorin Salvant Music, Trumpeter Chris Botti, and many many others. Tisa will be with us after 10. After 11 all things French, and Philippe Dova will be paying tribute to Didier Lockwood, jazz violinist who died last Sunday. Enough jazz how about Ska? This morning we'll play some excerpts of The Red Stripes Radio 3 "Do the Dog" session from this past Holiday Monday. Plus the greatest hits of music, and much more.
Welcome to Morning Brew. It's Fat Thursday today (apparently), so Steve Vines is the perfect person to join us after 10. This week: In a shock-horror surprise we learn that the government's tendering procedures err...don't work that well. A bunch of young HK guys being nominated for a small peace prize is likely to...wait for it...offend the entire population of China...yes, every single person. And, another former senior member of the cleanest government in the world looks like he's about to have some home affairs of his own to take care of. Namely, who plays Mummy and who plays Daddy? After 11, a serious musical treat. We welcome Lithuanian accordion virtuoso Martynas Levickis to The Brew with his axe. He'll be performing with, and directing The City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong tomorrow night. MB Vet Dr. David Gething will be with us at 11.40 to talk...eyes. We wrap up as usual at 12.40 with more music and goings on from DJ and composer JUNK! aka Glen Lloyd. Join us on Facebook Live for the musical bits of today's programme.
