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
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. For a little change today, no chefs. Instead at 10.10 we’ll meet runner Rob Naylor, who’s going to run around the very flat Peak loop, and then do it again, and again...oh, and again, until he’s clocked up 100km. Rob has done some gruelling top-end runs in his time, but he doesn’t mind the boredom of this one, as he’s raising money for a wonderful cause. He’ll explain all. After 11 Danny Hicks will be with us for this week’s Sports and All. He’ll be joining us on Facebook live (via video) with news of the gradual resumption of sport, including Aussie rugby league and golf’s European Tour. At 11.40 today, the final part of James Ross’ mini-series “Music of My Life”, featuring Steve Norman from Spandau Ballet. At 12.10 we’re off to the movies with MB critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook live throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
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.
