Good morning and welcome to Monday on Morning Brew. At 10.10 the week officially starts with our rugby report from Robbie McRobbie the CEO of HK Rugby. After 10.30 our New York correspondent Tracy Quan will be with us, as her town starts to relax it’s social distancing rules. Needless to say, not everyone is happy about this. After 11.30 James Ross presents the first of another (five part) “Music of My Life” series. He’ll be chatting with Steve Norman from Spandau Ballet. Steve's the guy who played the amazing sax solo on their huge hit True, and he's going to pick out some of his favourite songs for us every day this week.

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.
