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 firstname.lastname@example.org )
It's a new week on Morning Brew and to get things going at 9.40 we catch up with New York Correspondent Tracy Quan. Last week she went to the Brooklyn Academy of Music to see cult filmmaker Lizzie Borden presenting her 1983 classic "Born In flames", a gritty female-driven scifi set in a socialist America during the ten-year anniversary of the "war of liberation." Many of today's established players (such as Hollywood director Kathryn Bigelow) appeared in it during their early years. At 10.40 (just this once) its all about rugby with the CEO of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie. He'll give us all the latest in the local and Asian game, and possibly give us another exciting piece of Sevens news. At 12.10 we welcome author Nigel Collett with his new book "A Death in Hong Kong". It deals in a very sensitive and in depth manner with one of the most high profile and (still) puzzling Hong Kong "scandals" in many years; the 1980 death of policeman John MacLennan. After 12.40 we'll 'find out about the upcoming Hong Kong debut of US "shoegaze" band The Beach Fossils, with guitarist Tommy Davidson. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
