Good morning. It's Monday on Morning Brew. We'll start with Robbie McRobbie's weekly, and highly official, rugby report. Can't think why, but there won't be a lot of local news today. There's plenty to look forward to though. At 10.40 we'll visit New York where it is the eve of July 4th, to see what (if any!) Independence Day plans our correspondent Tracy Quan has. In 'book club' today she'll take us back to the 1920s to have another look at the compulsively readable 'Madam', by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Debbie Applegate. At 12.10 we are going to Tampere in Finland, for a live report from the 2022 World Masters Athletic Championships. It's the first for three years, due to COVID-19. Hong Kong has a team of six masters athletes competing, and the medals are coming our way. Team Manager Colin Whittington will tell you all about it this afternoon on MB.
Good morning. It's Wednesday on Morning Brew, and 'classical' music day. Composer and conductor Colin Touchin will be with us at 10.40, with another musical theme. Some of the most famous pieces out there were written about places or buildings, and they are the ones we’ll listening to today. At 11.40, RTL France's Philippe Dova will be live from Tokyo, with some music from the French legend Axel Bauer. Chris Watts is back after 12, live from his Motion Dynamics studio in Central, to have a pretty good look around your... rhomboidal. Join him on Facebook live.
