Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. At 10.10 today we’re off to San Francisco to meet Chef Matt Dolan for this week’s food bit. He’ll give you a few more of his priceless kitchen tips, and very likely flip a few somersaults for Joe in the process. At 11.10 it’s your weekly dose of top end “Sports and All” with Danny Hicks. And, after 12 our crack movie critic James Marsh continues to dig deep for another visual hot-or-not chat. Join us on Facebook live on and off throughout.
Good morning and welcome to Wednesday. Our first question on today's Morning Brew is; "did 2020 mark the beginning of the end for the music business?". If so, then the world has a lot to worry about, and we're about to see thousands of the absolute best ensembles and performers quite literally serving us coffee and fast food. A combination of Brexit and COVID-19 restrictions has made the future of this profession hang in the balance. At 10.10 conductor and composer Colin Touchin, who has just returned from a spell in Europe, will tell us what he thinks, and how he and colleagues spent last year just doing the best they can. After 11.30 RTL France’s Philippe Dova will be with us for his weekly taste of things French in Hong Kong, plus of course his usual “eclectic” handful of French hits. After 12 we’ll visit Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central for some active isolated...thawing out. Join Chris on Facebook live.
