Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning. It's Friday on Morning Brew, and the day of the week when we start with a handful of great tracks from Hong Kong bands and artists. Producer and musician Mark Rawson will be with us at 10.10 for a listen to some recent work by Hybrid Stereo, Murphy’s law, Flying daggers, and Kowloon Tram. Most of the music we hear in this little session each week is new, and has been recorded and produced in the 'bedrooms and kitchens' of Hong Kong (obvious reasons). At 11.10 Danny Hicks will be with you for this week's 'Sports and All'. He's still busy reporting on the Australian Open for AFP, so likely today will come to you in steam-audio only. As well as tennis, he'll have a 2022 Winter Olympics preview, and most likely some football news. At 11.40, a musical coffee break with singer-songwriter Paul Roth. A regular MB minstrel, Paul will be singing a couple of songs 'live' to help your Friday along. And, after 12 it's Marshy Movie Time. Join James on Facebook live too, for his streaming hits and misses of the week.
Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. At 10.10 we welcome author Dorothy Tse, who's novel "Snow and Shadow" is one of several chosen to be translated into English via a large grant from the HK Arts Development Council. We also meet publisher Frank Proctor of "Muse" (who published Dorothy's book), along with Chris Mattison from City University, who's overseeing the project. After 11, meet Wendy Tsang, who is a psychology consultant specialising in behavior analysis to help patients overcome mental and social disabilities. Special education in Hong Kong is difficult to access, and the waiting lists are long, so Wendy has returned to from the USA to open a new special school here, offering therapy and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to children with special needs. At 11.40, anthropologist Dr. Paul O'Connor will talk about his recent research into Skateboard Culture here. Paul is joined by Warren Stuart of Hong Kong X-Fed, the local extreme sports body.
