Good morning and welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. We’re nearly at the end of a Hong Kong week that will likely forevermore warrant more than a cursory couple of lines in Wikipedia. Commentator Steve Vines will be with us at 10.10 for his regular chat and chew. After 11, part four (of five) of James Ross’ mini series “Music of My Life” with Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman. At 11.40 we’ll visit our vet Dr. David Gething at his hospital, for more pet talk. And finally, join JC Viens for your weekly wine whine at 12.10. Join us on Facebook live (with video) throughout the morning.

Welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. There will be a lot of Australian links in today’s gig. Firstly, as usual at 10.40, we’ll catch up with newsman Jarrod Watt. Of course he’ll have some great music for you, but the big issue this week is the upcoming Aussie general election. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us for his weekly eco chat. At 11.40 we meet musical legend Bernard Fowler. As well as being a fantastic solo artist he’s widely known around the world for his work with The Rolling Stones, having been their backing singer for more than 30 years. He’s also appeared on hundreds of albums for as diverse artists as Herbie Hancock, Ryuichi Sakamoto, John Mayer, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Duran Duran, and Philip Glass (to name but a few). Bernard joins us on the line from Melbourne where he’s just finished that part of a huge tour. At 12.10 we take the Melbourne tram a little further south for this week’s chat with Morris Miselowski. Today: The Business of immortality. After 12.40 we’ll wrap up with some excellent local musicians from ARKM and Wreckage of Progress, who are appearing in this week’s Underground Heavy 21, at The Hub.(9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
