Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. Producer and musician Mark Rawson will be back with us at 10.10, as we continue to feature and talk about music created over the last couple of years by Hong Kong’s wonderfully talented singers and artists. At 11.10 it’s this week’s serving (geddit?) of ‘Sports and All’ with Danny Hicks. Danny is knee deep in reporting the Australian Open for AFP today, so we may or may not be able to unleash him on Facebook live. And, after 12 it’s Marshy Movie Time, or at least it would be if the cinemas were open. Narshy Netflix Time?! He'll be reviewing new streaming releases The Tender Bar, Copshop, Peacemaker, Brazen, and Archive 81. Join James on Facebook live as usual, with your impeccable insight. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook).
Today on Morning Brew, we celebrate World Theatre Day with the news that one of Asia's most eccentric, enigmatic, and seemingly ruthless people has decreed that all students should have exactly the same haircut as their odd leader. So, to get things going,Toni and Guy in Central will be offering free "Norma Bates'", today, and today only...to all members of the New Peoples Party. Kim Jong Un is apparently doing something similar in North Korea. We kick off today at 9.45 with The Rabbi Of Reel, movie reviewer Howard Elias, who will be looking at some of the movies being shown in this year's HK International Film Festival. Steve Vines joins us at 10.10 for a look at what's hot and what's not, here in Asia's World Stepford. After 11.40, a catch up on day two of the 2014 Hong Kong Rugby Tens. The latest Scores and news with organiser Chris Harker. After 12, Datuk Hugh Chiverton will fill us in on tomorrow's edition of Back Chat. (9.30am-1pm, or email email@example.com )
