Good morning! It's Monday on Morning Brew. At 10:10, we'll be hearing the local and global rugby report from Robbie McRobbie, the CEO of Hong Kong Rugby. Tracy Quan is going to be with us after that, live from New York, for this week's lowdown from the Big Apple, plus a jolly bitcoin scam and some booky stuff. After 11:30, James Ross joins us for the first part of another week of 'Music of My Life', his occasional series when he sits down with music greats and gets them to pick the records! Legendary music manager Miles Copeland this week, who not only launched 'The Police' back in the 70s, but also worked with bands like the Sex Pistols, R.E.M, The Bangles, and loads more. After that, we'll hear from Morning Brew's man of cricket: Tim Cutler. He'll join us live from Vanuatu, where he's the CEO of the national cricket association. Stay tuned for more!
It's Thursday on Morning Brew, and commentator Steve Vines joins us at 10.10 with a brand new Faustian tale especially for Hong Kong. Also, the government has a novel new addition to the square pegs and round holes file in dealing with unruly trees...blow them up...apparently (meanwhile the cops plan to carefully prune the next WW2 bomb they find beneath the streets of Wanchai). And, on an exponentially more serious note; yet another Hong Kong journalist has been assaulted in the line of duty in mainland China. Theatre of a different kind after 11 today as we meet two guys at the helm of the musical EVITA, which is currently playing at the Lyric Theatre: Resident Director Anton Luitingh, and Music Director Louis Zurnamer. MB Vet Dr. David Gething will be with us after 11.30 to talk broken bones and bladder stones. Also, he'll answer any of your questions. After 12, part 2 of our Ramadan food week special with former BBC lifestyle presenter Saadia Usmani. Motion specialist Chris Watts will be here to finish us off at 12.40 today with some osteoporosis and a pinch of eczema. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
