Phil Whelan is off for the day, so James Ross in with a focus on music from Hong Kong to get us going. We've an exclusive play of two new tracks from The Sleeves, who've just been included on a new China Anthology of Punk. Keith Goodman will tell us more. After 10 we hear about a new music festival on Sunday 25th April called Live@ The Grounds HK which is supporting the new Musician's Foundation charity. Organisers Ed Bean and Michael Denmark will join us to tell us more, along with Paul Thompson from The Red Stripes who'll also be playing. After 10.30 our occasional columnist Neil Newman will be examining some alternatives to the much-discussed Lantau Tomorrow project. After 11 Sports and All with Danny Hicks, and a focus today on Football and F1. After 11.30 we look at the ever-growing Hong Kong Coffee Culture - writer Jen Paolini from Localiiz has been tracking how independent coffee shops are popping up literally everywhere! We round it all off with Marsh at the Movies, and today James looks at Seobok, Stray, Love & Monsters, and Night in Paradise. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com and Facebook)
Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. You may have started hearing "that bird" over the past few days. The really noisey one who whistles at you at this time of the year. He's actually called the Asian Koel, and only kicks off when the yearly humidity blanket decends. Actually, if you can spot him you'll see he has blood red eyes, but his call denotes your clothes growing furry coats of their own, and your food going floppy and "off". So, today after 10, Chef Neil Tomes will tell you how to combat the slime in your kitchen, and he'll likely be halfway through baking some sourdough as well. After 11 it's Sports and All with Danny Hicks. Join him for football, cricket, and F1. And, after 12 we're off to the movies with critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook live, throughout.
