A very good morning to you from the Morning Brew team; Comrade Whelan can’t be with us this morning – he won a free ticket on the high speed train to Beijing – he’s now trying to win a trip back (maybe Wednesday).
I'm Peter King, hopefully making your Monday a little easier, and later on a couple of guests for you to meet. As usual, Robbie McRobbie joins us after the news at ten, and Dave Simpson an hour later to talk about Saturday’s Irish run. In addition, a collection of radio rarities, and some new stuff, plus the latest stories from news services from around the world. If you’d like to be part of it, just email radiopete@gmail, or you can text in to the show on 6393-5925 (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. At 10.10, instead of our usual Friday food bit, we're going to find out about the hit West End play The Curious Indecent of the Dog in the Night-Time. It's being performed here by The National Theatre of Great Britain as part of the Hong Kong Arts Festival. We meet one of its stars, Sam Newton. After 11, British Rhythm and Blues legend Georgie Fame will be with us for some music, chat, and a look forward to his weekend gigs at Grappa's Cellar. At 11.40, the music goes on, this time with eclectic Mexican duo Deer Mx, and a brand new Hong Kong inspired EP, Portraits. We'll park the ride for this week after 12 with movie critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook Live throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
