Good morning. We’ve reached Fryday again on Morning Brew. Chef Jason Black (Empire HK) is with us after 10, live from his hermit cabin in the hills of Durban, South Africa. After 11.30 we meet violinist Edward Dusinberre, who is the leader of the world famous, and multi award winning Takács Quartet. They are performing all of Béla Bartók’s string quartets this weekend at HKU. That’s no mean feat, but will be an amazing experience for fans of this legendary ensemble. After 12 it’s Marshy Movie Time Lite, as we catch up with James live from the supremely geeky Fantastic Fest in Austin Texas. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
It’s Thursday on Morning Brew. As usual we welcome commentator Steve Vines at 10.10. This week some very obvious questions are being asked. Is the “good old Hong Kong” clock finally reading one minute to midnight? Are those who say Hong Kong is being given away slice by slice correct? And, if they are, what do those responsible really expect as a reward from the Chinese government? History is full of “such people” not quite receiving the result they banked on. As always we love hearing from you via email. After 11.30 we’ll find out how local teams fared in this year’s City Nature Challenge. Organiser Shaun Martin returns with all the results from this super, app-based competition for naturists. Dr. Dave the vet is away visiting Dracula’s castle this week, and will be back next Thursday. After 12 our weekly wine appreciation class with Maestro JC Viens. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
