Happy new week, and welcome to The Brew. We'll start in the traditional way, with Robbie McRobbie's all-important rugby news at 12.10. Tracy Quan is busy today, and will be back soon with more tales of New York life. At 1.25 we're off to Vietnam for our weekly chat with Bureau Chief-at-large, Neil Runcieman. Do join him on Facebook live if you can.
Welcome to Wednesday the wet... here on The Brew. Chris Watts is busy today, so he'll be with us tomorrow for more pain and gain. Instead, today, we'll welcome back the one and only Chef Neil Tomes. Today, he's jobbing somewhere in Hong Kong, and we'll be talking...meat! Join him on Facebook live if you can. Then, at 1.25, trumpet virtuoso to the stars, Paul Archibald, will be with us again for more 'classical' music. Live from Bangkok, he'll be taking all about one of the true unsung heroes of the string family, and how in the right hands it can be very... 'sung', indeed. Every weekday - except public holidays - 12 midday until 2 - only on Radio 3.
