Good morning. It’s Friday on Morning Brew, and after 10 we have five more great ‘made-in-Hong Kong’ tracks for you. Mark Rawson is busy today, but he’s very kindly prepared this week’s songs. Do send us any of your work that is simply bursting for some radio play. At 11.10 Danny Hicks is back with this week's 'Sports and All'. Today is all about the Champions League final, F1, and women’s golf. He interviewed the US Open champion Yuka Saso the other day, so we’ll have that as well. And then, after 12, James Marsh will be keeping the high pressure art of sitting, watching a film, and saying something about it… down to standard. Join him, and Danny, on Facebook live.
Welcome to Wednesday, Australia Day, and India Republic Day... on Morning Brew. At 10.40, it's our weekly 'classical' music masterclass with composer and conductor Colin Touchin. Last time we talked about rare violin concertos. Today we'll go a step further and hear some concertos (or concerti, your call) for rare instruments, including... the hose pipe. But, of course. At 11.40 RTL France's Philippe Dova will be with us, live from pre-dawn Paris. Today is the birthday of French singing legend Michel Sardou (1947), so expect some anthems. It's Australia Day, and at 12.40 we welcome back top Australian music director and broadcaster Guy Noble, to 'report from the scene' and share some of his favourite Aussie music.
