Morning Brew: James Ross in today, Phil's back tomorrow. Comedy this morning as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow @ Fringe Club returns to HK tonight. Billed as one of the most exciting voices in Australian Comedy, Becky Lucas joins us on the show after 11.30. Before that, it's rugby after 10 and Robbie McRobbie, big wig at Hong Kong Rugby Union will update us on the Asian Sevens, the Women's Premiership, and a throw forward to the Rugby World Cup which kicks off on Friday in Tokyo. After 11 we're off to the races with William Nader, Director of Racing at the Jockey Club - HKJC Racing. We round it all off with Paddington Bear! On Saturday 28th the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra are putting a great new concert for kids wrapped around Michael Bond's famous stories of the bear from Peru. Eric Monson is the narrator, and he'll join us after 12 to tell us more! (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
Happy Tuesday. Today on Morning Brew a couple more little changes to our norm. At 10.40 we meet coasteering adventurer Esther Roling, who wants to invite you to take part in the upcoming Adventure Clean Up Hong Kong Challenge, which begins on April 27th. It will test your athletic skills whilst you clean up some of Hong Kong’s most difficult to access coastline areas. Jarrod Watt is busy today, so he’ll be with us tomorrow instead. At 11.10, New York Times best selling Author Paul French reads episode 2 (of 4) of Strangers on The Praia. Stranded in Shanghai in World War 2, a young German Jewish refugee tries for “neutral” Macau, and perhaps a route to freedom beyond. Originally published in Cha: An Asian Literary Journal, Paul has expanded and recorded it especially for Morning Brew. Morris Miselowski joins us after 12 for a bit more business futurism. And, at 12.40 we catch up with Palle Bo, The Radio Vagabond who’s travelling the world one interview at a time. Today we’ll wake him up in his home country of Denmark.
