Kicking off this week after 9 with a focus on the future of live music, with the closing of Grappa's Cellar over the weekend. The final music gig was on Friday played by Last Orders, and we'll be joined by band members Jeremy and Zack. Plus DJ and Music Consultant Steve Bruce, and Nick Willsher, MD of Entertaining Asia. After 10 Robbie McRobbie, head honcho of the Hong Kong Rugby Union, with a wrap-up of the World Under 20 Trophy, and Operation Breakthrough returning from the Vietnam tour. After 11 and ahead of his appearance tonight at the Hong Kong Book Fair, China expert Mark O'Neill drops into the studio to tell us about his book "How South Asians Helped to Make Hong Kong". Plus all the best in music through till 1.(9:00am-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.
