Weekday programme Morning Brew is a chat and music show. Hosted by Phil Whelan, guests include regular contributors and drop-ins, who span topics from earnest current affairs to cookery to the arts.
Catch it live:
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 email@example.com and Facebook)
James Ross in for Phil today, as the Radio 3 team prepare our Operation Santa Claus Launch spectacular, on air tonight from 7pm with Alyson Hau. Here on Morning Brew we kick off after 10 with our weekly kickoff by Steve Vines - of all things absurd in the worlds of politics and government, a.k.a "What could possibly go wrong next?". After 11 we switch to jazz, and this weekend's mega Freespace JazzFest in West Kowloon. Organiser Kung Chi Shing joins us in the studio with some special guest jazzers. After 11.30 pets and vets, well vet David Gething actually, answering your questions. Then after 12 we cross live to the Hong Kong Wine Fair, to get the lowdown from our expert wine reporter JC Viens. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
