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 )
James Ross in the chair for the final day of the month, and as the summer rains kick in we'll hunker down with some great music and guests. Starting with a look at a big glass box that's popped up on Queen's Rd Central outside the Entertainment Building. Inside is artist Derick Melander’s newly-created colourful tower sculpture which is in celebration of the 13th Central & Western District Festival. It's a 2.4m, 700-pound sculpture made entirely with second-hand clothing from the local community, and sorted by NGO Redress. Derick will join us on the line from New York City to tell us more. After 10 canine tales and advice with doggy councillor Janice Jensen from Nevis Animal Speak. This morning - The Art of Waking your Dog...! After 11 author Christopher Dillon joins us to talk about the state of the HK property market in these troubled times. Chris is the writer of the successful "Landed" series of books, and will give us an insight into the current state of play. All that and the Greatest Hits of Music through until 1pm.
