Monday morning after a weekend of craziness, but we press on regardless, as James Ross sits in for Phil today. No rugby today as Robbie McRobbie takes a short break, but we do have William Nader, Director of Racing at the Hong Kong Jockey club (HKJC Racing), with the latest on the horses. Plus we focus on Italian food in Hong Kong, as part of the Italia Mia Festival. We'll be joined by Savio Pesavento of the Academy of Italian Cuisine and Dr Filippo Scevola of the University of Turin who'll tell us about the positive health benefits of a pinch of salt! After 11 the world of story-telling and we focus on a new opera-play called 'Anne & Zef' - about Anne Frank, victim of the Jewish Holocaust in World War II, and another young victim, Zef, killed in the Albanian war in the 90's. Composer Monique Krus, and conductor Vicky Shin will join us to tell all about the performance at Tai Kwun this weekend. Plus all that's best in music through until 1pm.

It’s Thursday again which means it’s Steve Vines day on Morning Brew. Join our resident writer of wrongs (see what we did there?) at 10.10 for his weekly look back at the political week...in awe. As always we’d love to hear from you via email. At 11.10 we’ll find out about this year’s HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens. It’s our annual date with organiser Tony Bratsanos. Today he’s joined by former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker Dean Saunders, and Premier League referee Jon Moss. Our MB vet Dr. David Gething will be back at 11.40 to answer any of your furry questions, and to talk about cat flu. Finally, wine expert JC Viens will be with us after 12 with more stories and advice. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
