Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. As usual we’ll start the day at 10.10 with a few ‘made in Hong Kong’ tracks, all produced and performed by our top-talented local artists. Mark Rawson is still away for one more week, so today we’ll welcome the wonderful singer and violinist Aleks Softley, who’s going to unleash the Lamma sound on you. It will be worth it, I promise. At 11.10, Danny Hicks returns with this week’s ‘Sports and All’. And, after 12 the Morning Brew cake will be well and truly iced by the one and only, film critic to the stars, James Marsh.
Good morning. Welcome to Wednesday. It's 'classical' music day on Morning Brew. Maestro Colin Touchin will be with us at 10.40 to tell you all about one of the most famous composing prizes in musical history. It's called the Prix de Rome, but hardly anyone really knows the test pieces that these guys had to write as their submissions. Of course Colin will fill in the quavers and crotchets for you today, and play you some wonderful music in the process. At 11.10, live from Tokyo, RTL France's Asia correspondent Philippe Dova with be back, with more classic French hits of summer. And, after 12 it's time for our weekly visit to Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central, to talk about preventing what's called 'pain catastrophising'. Join him on Facebook live to watch the demos and ask any questions you may have.
