Welcome to our final week of early starts on Morning Brew. For four more days (as there’s one more Backchat-This Week on Friday) we’ll be doing your requests after the news at 9. Just email or put a post on our Facebook page. After 10 today all the latest local and Asian Rugby news with Robbie McRobbie. At 11.10 we catch up with our American Politics guy (and author of the Custom Maid books) Peter de Krassel. Did we wake up this morning to the news the President, in a fit of anger, has totally pulled the pin on China? Or is there still a lot of small print to consider? (9:00am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
Welcome to Wednesday on Morning Brew. After 9 today more of your requests to get the day going. Just email us or post something on our Facebook page. As you know, Radio 3 is great friends with the rugby community here, so after 10 we'll find out about a brand new book by author, and former rugby player John D'eathe about the very early days of the HK Rugby Sevens. This isn't just a chronology. It's the story of the man who founded the sevens, Tokkie Smith, and how racial confusion pretty much destroyed his memory...until now. After 11 we catch up with RTL France's Hong Kong Correspondent Philippe Dova, who's still on assignment (holiday) in Paris. As usual he'll have a few stories and all the French pop music you didn't know you needed to know. At 12.10 Pilates Athlete Jason Clark will be with us for your all important weekly workout.
