Weekday programme Morning Brew is a chat and music show. Hosted by Phil Whelan, guests include regular contributors and drop-ins, who span topics from earnest current affairs to cookery to the arts.
Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning and welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. We’re nearly at the end of a Hong Kong week that will likely forevermore warrant more than a cursory couple of lines in Wikipedia. Commentator Steve Vines will be with us at 10.10 for his regular chat and chew. After 11, part four (of five) of James Ross’ mini series “Music of My Life” with Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman. At 11.40 we’ll visit our vet Dr. David Gething at his hospital, for more pet talk. And finally, join JC Viens for your weekly wine whine at 12.10. Join us on Facebook live (with video) throughout the morning.

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.
