Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. For a little change today, no chefs. Instead at 10.10 we’ll meet runner Rob Naylor, who’s going to run around the very flat Peak loop, and then do it again, and again...oh, and again, until he’s clocked up 100km. Rob has done some gruelling top-end runs in his time, but he doesn’t mind the boredom of this one, as he’s raising money for a wonderful cause. He’ll explain all. After 11 Danny Hicks will be with us for this week’s Sports and All. He’ll be joining us on Facebook live (via video) with news of the gradual resumption of sport, including Aussie rugby league and golf’s European Tour. At 11.40 today, the final part of James Ross’ mini-series “Music of My Life”, featuring Steve Norman from Spandau Ballet. At 12.10 we’re off to the movies with MB critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook live throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
Welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. Steve Vines is still away on his world tour and, all being well, should be back next week. After 10.30 today we’re going to find out about another very cool sport based charity; The Starfish Foundation. Based in Cambodia it helps the poorest children, through the fantastic team building medium of football, to get the education they deserve. After 11 we meet (The Jam’s) bass player Bruce Foxton and guitarist Russell Hastings, who are...”From The Jam”. This fantastic “tribute band, plus” is in the middle of a huge tour, and they play Hong Kong tonight. After 11.30 our vet Dr. David Gething will be back with another serious advice session. It’s seems that leptospirosis in Hong Kong is way more at the moment than something we merely look up online. It’s reached emergency levels, and Dave will tell you all he knows. At 12.10 more wine whines, ive from Italy, with Maestro JC Viens. Finally, a day earlier than normal, we’re off to the movies with James Marsh after 12.30. Join him on Facebook Live.
