Good morning from the Morning Brew team! Phil won a trip to Macau yesterday; he’s still over there trying to win a ticket back. So, while the katz away, the mice will play… Peter King is your host today, and he’s got a packed show for you.
After the news at 10, we’ll be chatting with Tim Huxley about the upcoming Macau Grand Prix and Radio 3’s coverage over the next three days. Around 11.40 this morning, a chance for you to meet to authors – Damon Rose and Sergio Monteiro. They were winners of supplementary prizes in the 2017 International Proverse Prize for book-length un-published work.
As usual after the midday news, James Marsh will be dropping by to give us his take on the latest movies.
The Hong Kong Golf Club’s geneal manager Ian Gardner will join us at 12.35 to tell us about the upcoming Honma Hong Kong Open and a list of the latest big names who will be taking part. Plus, a chance for you to go to all four days for free! During the show, we’ll be asking questions regarding the tournament at Fanling next week; submit your answer by email and we’ll include your name in the draw to be made just before the 1pm news. We have four pairs of passes to give away, plus an exclusive prize of a pair of passes, and a pair of passes to the Champion’s Pavillion on Saturday.
For the early birds, here’s your first question: Who was the winner of last year’s Hong Kong Open? Submit your answer, complete with your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org And that’s Friday’s Morning Brew with Peter King, on RTHK Radio 3. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
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.
