Good morning and welcome to Tuesday. We kick off Morning Brew after 9 with our daily mini request thing. Just email or post your song choice on our Facebook page. After 10 we welcome cyclist and sportsman James Owens, who’s on a bike ride from the UK to Japan for the start of the rugby World Cup. He’s raising money for a wonderful sport development charity called ChildFund Pass It Back. He has arrived in Hong Kong and we’ll catch up this morning. We talked some months ago when he was in Hanoi. At 10.40 more from Aus Boy Jarrod Watt. As always he has all the news from Down Under that’s fit to broadcast, and a couple of great tracks for you. Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us after 11 for this week’s eco bit. And, after 12, Morris Miselowski joins us on the line from Melbourne for this week's biz futurism talk. No matter how much civilisation advances, there will always be a time when the job can be best done by...animals. That's where we start today. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
Morning Brew: James Ross in for Phil today, and we'll be playing musical chairs a bit over the next few weeks. Kicking off this week after 9 with a focus on the future of live music, with the closing of Grappa's Cellar over the weekend. The final music gig was on Friday played by Last Orders, and we'll be joined by band members Jeremy and Zack. Plus DJ and Music Consultant Steve Bruce, and Nick Willsher, MD of Entertaining Asia. After 10 Robbie McRobbie, head honcho of the Hong Kong Rugby Union, with a wrap-up of the World Under 20 Trophy, and Operation Breakthrough returning from the Vietnam tour. After 11 and ahead of his appearance tonight at the Hong Kong Book Fair, China expert Mark O'Neill drops into the studio to tell us about his book "How South Asians Helped to Make Hong Kong". Plus all the best in music through till 1.(9:00am-1pm, email email@example.com )
