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.
This Friday morning we've a special holiday Morning Brew with James Ross. We'll be celebrating 25 years of the HKSAR with every song being a hit from the years since 1997, and Mark Rawson will pick out some of the biggest local Hong Kong artists since ‘97. Director of Racing at the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), Bill Nader, will look back on 25 years of horse racing in the SAR - from Silent Witness to Golden Sixty. Plus we'll speak to Annemarie Evans and preview her special Hong Kong Heritage programme tomorrow, looking back at the events of the handover on June 30th 1997. And, a special bonus will be our friend, the amazing LEEE JOHN from 'Imagination'. Leee will join us to talk about his new song, which is a collaboration with the man who brought us ‘Ca Plane Pour Moi’ in the ‘70s, Belgian superstar Plastic Bertrand. We have live music on throughout the show today from Hong Kong band BenziNe, and singer-songwriter Sam Barbour, who'll be talking about his new kids book ‘The Litter Bug’ as well.
