Welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. Video hasn’t quite killed the radio star, but correspondent Steve Vines is giving it a jolly good go. Join him on Facebook live from his Sai Kung lair at 10.10 for this week’s chat. After 11.30 we’ll be paying another house call to our vet Dr.David Gething. On his list today is an announcement by the government that pets do not pose any danger from coronavirus. So it seems people still think they do. We’ll wake up our wine expert JC Viens at 12.10. Join him live on the line from Italy.
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.
