Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. We’ll begin at 10.10 with our weekly rugby report from Robbie McRobbie. Today he reports live from Scotland...where it will be 2 in the morning. He’s currently wide awake wondering what he’d do if he ever suffered from insomnia. At 10.40 (for this week) Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us for his regular eco-bit. The Royal Commonwealth Society is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year with...a cricket match, in fact the Commonwealth Cricket Cup, this coming weekend. Its Chairman Peter Mann joins us after 11. At 12.10 we welcome Nanjing based British artist Bill Aitchison to the programme. He’ll tell you all about his current exhibition here called Quick Fix.
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”.
