James Ross in for Phil this week and next, and this morning we find out about the citywide clap which is planned for tonight at 8pm. The event by the Hong Kong Community Foundation mirrors similar claps around the world, including the UK, as we salute heroes who've been working tirelessly to keep Hong Kong safe during the coronavirus crisis. Sally Lo is the founder of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, which is supporting the event, and she'll tell us more at 10.15. After 11 we'll have the final part of Music of My Life with LEEE JOHN of 80's supergroup Imagination, and his music choices, and then after 11.30 author Christopher Dillon joins us to talk about the state of the property market here. Chris is the author of the "Landed" series of books about property, such as Landed Hong Kong and Landed Japan. After 12 James Marsh is on the show with our Friday movie and streaming extravaganza, and today he's focused on Tiger King and Freud.
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.
