Good morning! Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. Recently, we have seen the rebirth of Central Market! After several years resting, the building has been repurposed, gentrified, modernised...whatever you wanna call it, and of course it's open again! This process is called "placemaking". Now, as you might know, Singapore is brilliant at this, and to explain this process in more detail, I'm joined at 10:30 by Jacky Cheng from the architecture company JERDE. After 11, it is Sports and All with Danny Hicks; today we've got Ryder Cup, F1, and footy! At 11:40, the fifth and final part of 'Music of My Life'; James Ross talks to the legendary music manager Miles Copeland, who chooses the music and tells a bit more of his story. After 12, of course, it's Marshy Movie Time! Our film critic James Marsh will give you the best and worst of film right here on the Morning Brew.
On Morning Brew today, New York correspondent and best selling author Tracy Quan returns at 10.10 for our weekly rendezvous. Today, on the back of a piece in Dissent Magazine, we'll talk about writer Vivek Bald's take on the very selective American anti-Asian immigration laws of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. At 10.40 our first guest from this year's Intimacy of Creativity Festival. Each year some of the world's foremost instrumental soloists and composers come together in Hong Kong to work closely on new pieces and perform some of the great chamber music repertoire. Today, it's live music and chat with John Bruce Yeh, who is the Assistant Principal Clarinet player in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Today is "Earth Day", so after 11.30, Dr. Merrin Pearse joins us in the studio for all things environmental. After 12.30 author Paul French joins us on the line from London. Paul has written several very popular books about Asian society, including the fascinating "Midnight in Peking", which is the true story of the murder of a young British woman in January 1937. Today; murder in...Shanghai. (9:30am-1pm, ,email email@example.com )
