Welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. Commentator (Commendatore) Steve Vines is back after 10 for his weekly look as Asia’s Weird City. The big news this week does concern airborne particles, but not the kind that come from a canister. Something far worse, and with the traditional Lunar New Year migration about to happen on the mainland, it really is now a force to be reckoned with. After 11 we meet legendary Slovenian music and cross media group Laibach, who performed here last night. The gig was called ‘Sound of Music’, which references their iconic rehash of...The Lonely Goatherd (and other songs from the classic musical...but why?). Dr Dave the vet will be with us at 11.40 today. With a new year around the corner, we’ll probably end up talking about firecrackers and rats at some stage. After 12 it’s our weekly wine class with Maestro JC Viens who’s somewhere in deepest Europe today.
Good Morning. It’s Thursday on Morning Brew, and we’ll start off after 9 with a few of your requests to take us to the bottom of the hour. Just post on our Facebook page or drop us an email. At 10.10 Steve Vines has the floor to reflect on what’s become the most eventful Hong Kong summer since that of 1967. Do email your comments and opinions. Dr. Dave the vet is away for a couple of weeks changing the world one woof at a time. He’ll be bark soon. After 12, for the first time in a month, Phil gets the word on wine from Maestro JC Viens.
