Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. Producer and musician Mark Rawson will be back with us at 10.10, as we continue to feature and talk about music created over the last couple of years by Hong Kong’s wonderfully talented singers and artists. At 11.10 it’s this week’s serving (geddit?) of ‘Sports and All’ with Danny Hicks. Danny is knee deep in reporting the Australian Open for AFP today, so we may or may not be able to unleash him on Facebook live. And, after 12 it’s Marshy Movie Time, or at least it would be if the cinemas were open. Narshy Netflix Time?! He'll be reviewing new streaming releases The Tender Bar, Copshop, Peacemaker, Brazen, and Archive 81. Join James on Facebook live as usual, with your impeccable insight. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook).
Hello, and welcome to Wednesday on Morning Brew. At 10.40 today we present to you… the recorder, but not as you’ve likely heard it before. Although this instrument is known to be Kryptonite to parents of small children all over the world, when it is played properly it can sound magical. The scores to the Harry Potter movies are full of it, and Vivaldi was partial to the odd virtuosic toot as well. The bad news is, composer and conductor Colin Touchin is rather a wicked recorder player himself, so I’m afraid there’s no getting away from it on today’s programme. At 11.10 we’re off to Melbourne to catch up, a day later than normal, with biz futurist Morris Miselowski. In light of the recent Food Panda dispute, Morris will look at what needs to be done to the ‘gig economy’ to make it more accountable and effective in years to come. Is it basically a good idea done badly right now? After 11.30, from a ridiculously early Wednesday morning in Paris, RTL France’s Philippe Dova will be with us for more chat and music. And, after 12, class is in session with Chris Watts, as we join him at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central. Join Chris on Facebook live.
