Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Friday. Today is ‘made in Hong Kong’ music day on Morning Brew. Mark Rawson is still away on his travels, so at 10.10 we’ll welcome the one and only John Prymmer to The Brew to choose the best in local sounds. At 11.10 Danny Hicks brings you this week’s 'Sports and All'. And then, after 12 it’s Marshy Movie Time. MB movie critic James Marsh will look from on high at the week in film and streamers. As usual you can join in with Marshy, and Danny, on Facebook live.
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.
