Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. We’re off to San Francisco at 10.10 to talk to Chef Matt Dolan, live from his restaurant Twenty Five Lusk. He’s a world class chef by night and secret dumpling fiend by day, so that’s what’s on the menu today. After 11 it’s all about Hong Kong’s one and only science fiction conference, Melon 2019: Aliens on the Galactic Silk Road. We welcome the founder Fritz Demopoulos and special guest Robbie Stamp, who is the Executive Producer of the movie version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. At 11.40 we find out about an upcoming dance performance with quite a difference. “Sidestepped: A Dance for Selective Amnesia” is a collaboration between Butoh choreographer Masami Yurabe and renowned British cellist Oliver Coates. Both of them join us in the studio this morning. After 12 James Marsh is back again with this week’s movie review. Joining James today will be film maker Alexandre Philippe, whose new documentary "Memory: The Origins of Alien" plays tonight at the Hong Kong International Film Festival. We'll be on Facebook Live. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
Today on Morning Brew, more tales of the pretty-much-expected at 10.10 with Steve Vines. Join us as usual with your email comments. After 11 we meet the fabulous Habanera Saxophone Quartet, who are here from Paris to perform with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong in...”Saxiland”, tomorrow at City Hall. Our Vet Dr. David Gething is still recovering in France after completing his huge point to point triathlon, so one again at 11.40 we welcome Dr. Jane McNae, who’s an expert animal physio’. We jump species after 12 with arch manipulator Chris Watts, who will talk all about knees, and of course ice and rosemary oil. Then, the happiest of endings at 12.40 as JUNK! will be holding his regular Thursday matinée musicale on air and on Facebook Live.
