It's Tuesday on Morning Brew. Keep your musical connections going after 9. Just listen to the first track in the chain, which was released today in 1961 and was Motown’s first Number 1 hit. You just choose the next one for us via some kind of connection. At 10.10 Aus Boy Jarrod Watt joins us with the latest from Down Under. Dr. Merrin Pearse is busy today, so he’ll be back tomorrow. The 18th Asian Games is on these two weeks in Jakarta and Palembang, in Indonesia. RTHK’s man of sport Atom Cheung is there so we’ll catch up on the line at 11.10. A lighter item after 12, as Business Futurist Morris Miselowski talks about the future of war. Hopefully the tech tea leaves will tell us it doesn’t have one, but sadly horrible humans being what we are, the chances are slim. (9:00am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
It's Thursday on Morning Brew, and commentator Steve Vines joins us at 10.10 with a brand new Faustian tale especially for Hong Kong. Also, the government has a novel new addition to the square pegs and round holes file in dealing with unruly trees...blow them up...apparently (meanwhile the cops plan to carefully prune the next WW2 bomb they find beneath the streets of Wanchai). And, on an exponentially more serious note; yet another Hong Kong journalist has been assaulted in the line of duty in mainland China. Theatre of a different kind after 11 today as we meet two guys at the helm of the musical EVITA, which is currently playing at the Lyric Theatre: Resident Director Anton Luitingh, and Music Director Louis Zurnamer. MB Vet Dr. David Gething will be with us after 11.30 to talk broken bones and bladder stones. Also, he'll answer any of your questions. After 12, part 2 of our Ramadan food week special with former BBC lifestyle presenter Saadia Usmani. Motion specialist Chris Watts will be here to finish us off at 12.40 today with some osteoporosis and a pinch of eczema. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
