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.
James Ross in for Phil, and a busy show which kicks off after 10 with a focus on Ocean Park, which has been getting somewhat of a bad rap recently. Director of Operations Timothy Ng, and Dr Gary Harfitt, Associate Dean from Hong Kong University, and part of Ocean Park's Education committee will be on. They'll tell us, firstly about the how the park is running without visitors at the moment, and then more importantly, talking about some of the conservation and education work that is the backbone of Ocean Park. After 10.30 all things Aussie with Jarrod Watt, who's recently annointed himself leader of the campaign to get NZ Prime Minister Jacina Ardern installed as Australian Prime Minister. After 11 the second part of this week's “Music of My Life” series with Steve Norman from Spandau Ballet (Official). Steve's the guy who played the amazing sax solo on their huge hit True, and more hot music picks from him. After 11.30 Merrin Pearse will join us with a special guest to talk about Otters in Hong Kong. And we round it off with Morris Miselowski - Business Futurist, Keynote Presenter, Broadcaster as we focus on the future of transportation. Plus the best in music through until 1pm.
