On Monday's 123 Show, we'll hear about the Harmony Show Hong Kong, a fashion event that aims to highlight refugees and ethnic minority artists.

Welcome to a brand new wet week here on Morning Brew. The good news is it’s been perfect rugby weather this past couple of days. We’ll hear all the latest from rugby kingpin Robbie McRobbie at 10.10. At 12.10, a charity concert with a difference. On May 30th The City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong will be performing with star soloists from Hong Kong and India, in Raaga and Rhythm: Music Without Borders. Proceeds from the concert will be used to help people with special needs in the workplace. We meet the music director (the amazingly talented drummer) Anthony Fernandes.

On Monday's Backchat, digging Kowloon Park. The government is consulting on a plan to develop 340,000 square feet of the park - about 25% of the total, with five floors of facilities, accommodating an all-weather and barrier-free underground pedestrian network. Community space, retail/food and beverage and car-parking facilities are also included in the scheme 'to address imminent needs and enhance the use of underground space'. Will it make it easier to move around the area? Do we actually need more shops in TST? What sort of disturbance will there be during construction? Will the plan disrupt the environment or enjoyment of urban parks?
After 9.20, review of EU Elections.

This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for some Good Ol' Country. For the first time in nearly 20 years Radio 3 brings you the best in real-deal American country music. We’re very excited to welcome its host too, who apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, has lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael Lance was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America in his family’s Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Music has always been in his blood, literally, and he hopes his selection will make you stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country.
