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 Morning Brew for a Tuesday. After 9 today a suitably rainy classic from The Stones to kick off our musical chain. 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 back at 10.40 with his weekly Eco-bit. At 11.10 we welcome British Trumpet virtuoso Paul Archibald, whose educational work with some of Hong Kong’s best musicians and his passion project the English Music Academy, is bringing him to town more and more. After 12 Business Futurist Morris Miselowski will be with us to act all British and talk about the weather. At 12.40 our last chat with radio pilgrim Steve Hackman. Three days ago he completed his monumental walk along the ancient Via Francigena route from Southern England to Rome. After trekking at least 1700km over two and a half months, he’s now safely back in Hong Kong. (9:00am-1pm, email email@example.com )
