Good morning and welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. At 10.10 our weekly date with the grimacing reaper, Steve Vines. It’s been an incredible week of good old fashioned Hong Kong can-do spirit in the wake of last Sunday’s typhoon. Many are saying the Government “could-do” with a little more of that spirit though, and that once again it was caught with its raincoat down. Monday was most telling in that regard. What do you think? After 11 (for this week only) we’re off to the movies with reviewer James Marsh, who's at the Fantastic Fest in Texas. At 12.10 SCMP sport commentator Tim Noonan joins us on the line from Tokyo to talk about tennis star Naomi Osaka, and his piece in today’s paper about why you should visit the Rugby World Cup in Japan.(9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. Let's get some great Monday tracks going in the first half hour with your suggestions for today’s musical chain. Just listen to the first track in the chain and choose the next one for us via some kind of connection. Today's first one is a 1982 one-hit-wonder from Toni Basil. At 9.40 we meet Australian author and blogger Jules Hannaford, whose brand new cathartic memoir “Fool Me Twice” already has the critics asking for more. After 10 our man of rugby Robbie McRobbie has all the latest in the local and Asian game. At 11.10 we welcome our newest addition to Morning Brew, wine expert, writer, and story teller JC Viens, who shot shot to stratospheric, radiophonic fame two years ago with Chef Jason Black in the Radio 3 programme “B is for Bacon”.
