Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning and welcome to Wednesday. We have a musical start today. On this date in 1756 the world's most famous composer, to us anyway, was born. But, was he so famous during his own lifetime? Was he the "musical Christ"? as Tchaikovsky later said? Was he plain "nuts"? And, interestingly, as others have suggested over the years, was his sister actually the real musical one of the family? Composer and conductor Colin Touchin is back with us at 10.10 to address these points, and wish Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus... Mozart, a happy birthday. After 11.30 we welcome RTL France's man in Hong Kong, Philippe Dova, for more French sounds, and... le news. At 12.10 today, our weekly visit to Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central. Of course, join Chris on Facebook live with your questions, which he'll answer straight away with the odd demo thrown in for good measure.
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.
