Weekday programme Morning Brew is a chat and music show. Hosted by Phil Whelan, guests include regular contributors and drop-ins, who span topics from earnest current affairs to cookery to the arts.
Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. For a little change today, no chefs. Instead at 10.10 we’ll meet runner Rob Naylor, who’s going to run around the very flat Peak loop, and then do it again, and again...oh, and again, until he’s clocked up 100km. Rob has done some gruelling top-end runs in his time, but he doesn’t mind the boredom of this one, as he’s raising money for a wonderful cause. He’ll explain all. After 11 Danny Hicks will be with us for this week’s Sports and All. He’ll be joining us on Facebook live (via video) with news of the gradual resumption of sport, including Aussie rugby league and golf’s European Tour. At 11.40 today, the final part of James Ross’ mini-series “Music of My Life”, featuring Steve Norman from Spandau Ballet. At 12.10 we’re off to the movies with MB critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook live throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
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 email@example.com )
