Good morning and welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. At 10.10 today we’ll meet New Zealand artist, designer, and educator, Kerry Ann Lee, who’s in Hong Kong to host her latest exhibition ‘Perpetual Spring’. After 10.30 Jarrod Watt is with us for this week’s Aussie news and new music. Dr. Merrin Pearse will be back at 11.10 with his Tuesday eco-bit. At 12.10 more biz futurism with Morris Miselowski, who will tell us about a new (and incredibly dubious, to be honest) idea for making music “more pleasing” to listeners. We wrap up at 12.40 with best selling author Paul French, who joins us on the line from the UK. He’ll get up ridiculously early to tell you all about South China tigers, and his new Audible Original; ‘Murders of Old China’. (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 )
