Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Wednesday on Morning Brew. Janice Jensen from Nevis Animal Speak will be joining us (on Facebook live too) from Texas at 9.40 today. Her message is; “positive reinforcement is power”, unless of course you’re a cat owner, then forget it. If you’ve been listening to Morning Brew for a while you’ll know just how good Hong Kong’s musicians and bands are. For a perfect reminder make sure you stay with us at 10.40 this morning. On July 1st we broadcast a special concert which was recorded in our big Studio 1. It featured the excellent ska band The Red Stripes, the amazing ambience of The Celestial Sound System, and hosts Carolyn and Paul, The Pop Fugitives. To cheer you up today in the best way possible we’ll bring you a truncated version. Join us for 17 minutes of wall to wall ska, that was most definitely... Made in Hong Kong. After 11.30 our friend Philippe Dova from RTL France will return with more stories and wonderful French music. And, at 12.10 we’re off to visit Chris Watts again at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central, where he’s going to explain just how good stretching is for you.
It’s Fryday and St. Valentine’s Day here on Morning Brew. Quite by coincidence (you must understand) we’ll be talking about two topics on a lot of people’s minds today; food and flowers. At 10.10 we’ll visit Chef Matthew Dolan in his San Francisco restaurant Twenty Five Lusk, to see what he’s cooking up for the lovers. At 11.10 we talk flowers with Hong Kong’s undisputed top floral designer Dr. Solomon Leong, live from his workshop. After 12 we’re off to the movies with our critic James Marsh. He too gets a house call today. Weather permitting, you’ll be able to see and hear all of today’s guests on Facebook live. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com and Facebook)
