Good morning. On Morning Brew today, commentator Steve Vines will be with us at 10.10. This week we have conclusive proof that Elton John was wrong. It doesn’t seem to be the hardest word. Far from it actually, but the people of Hong Kong don’t seem to be convinced in the slightest by this week’s spate of theatrical self flagellation. There is now a resounding chorus of, “Annnddd?”. Join Steve with your emails, and comments below. Today is World Refugee Day. Refugee status is a hugely grey area in Hong Kong, that even the experts sometimes struggle to explain. The message seems to be “come in but we don’t want you, and we’ll make that very clear to you frequently”. At 11.10 we meet Virginie Goethals who is the co founder of RUN, a NGO for refugees that provides rehabilitation through sport, with a special focus on women who are victims of torture and sexual violence. At 11.40 our vet Dr. David Gething returns. Following on from our chat yesterday with Janice Jensen about things we like to do but our dogs may not, we talk about dosing your furry friends with supplements. After 12, we’re fashionably off to Milan for this week's wine class with JC Viens. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
On Friday's Backchat, we talk about the political side of the extradition law issue. Where does it leave the CE, and her relations with the pro-Government camp? What will be the effects on district elections? How should she seek to repair the damage, or is it too late, and does the CE now have a short shelf-life? Is this a good time for Pan Dems to push for electoral reform? What are the latest developments with students who continue to seek to change the administration's mind? Could they go too far and alienate moderate supporters?

This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for some Good Ol' Country. For the first time in nearly 20 years Radio 3 brings you the best in real-deal American country music. We’re very excited to welcome its host too, who apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, has lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael Lance was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America in his family’s Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Music has always been in his blood, literally, and he hopes his selection will make you stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country.
