James Ross in for Phil this week and next, and this morning we find out about the citywide clap which is planned for tonight at 8pm. The event by the Hong Kong Community Foundation mirrors similar claps around the world, including the UK, as we salute heroes who've been working tirelessly to keep Hong Kong safe during the coronavirus crisis. Sally Lo is the founder of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, which is supporting the event, and she'll tell us more at 10.15. After 11 we'll have the final part of Music of My Life with LEEE JOHN of 80's supergroup Imagination, and his music choices, and then after 11.30 author Christopher Dillon joins us to talk about the state of the property market here. Chris is the author of the "Landed" series of books about property, such as Landed Hong Kong and Landed Japan. After 12 James Marsh is on the show with our Friday movie and streaming extravaganza, and today he's focused on Tiger King and Freud.
Welcome to Wednesday on Morning Brew. We have a couple of last minute empty chairs today as Janice Jensen from Nevis Animal Speak isn't feeling too well (Get well soon, Janice), and Pilates Boy is busy. It will be business as usual next week. However, after 10 today we find out about Opera Hong Kong’s upcoming performances of Mozart’s classic tale of the womanising Don Giovanni. Lithuanian Maestro Mārtiņš Ozoliņš will join us on the line. After 11.30 RTL France’s Hong Kong Correspondent Philippe Dova will be with us for his weekly report, and the absolute best in cheesy French music. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
