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 firstname.lastname@example.org )
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 )
