James Ross in for Wednesday's Morning Brew, and after 10 writer and British broadcaster Mike Read is on the show, as we replay a conversation from a couple of years back. Mike's also Chairman of the British Plaque Trust, which puts up the round blue plaques on historic buildings in the UK, usually commemorating the birthplace or residence of notable, celebrity, or even musical figures - and those include David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, and many more. After 11.30 Philippe Dova joins us with all things French, and his special guest today is Alan Williams from the huge seventies and eighties band, The Rubettes. After 12 Chris Watts, Mr Muscle Man, focuses on the deepest external hip rotator called the pirifornis that can cause pain down the back of the leg... ouch! All that plus the best in music through until 1pm.
It’s Thursday on Morning Brew. Good morning. At 10.10 today we welcome back our man in Sai Kung, Steve Vines, live on video from his country hideout. As Hong Kong and the rest of the world are somewhat preoccupied right now, it seems that some very interesting things (mostly to do with some very slick “in-out” arrests of various people) have also been happening here. Perfect cover? Pure coincidence? More from Steve. After 11.30 we’re off to visit our MB vet, Dr. David Gething. As usual these days, it’s our weekly wine class with JC Viens at 12.10. We wrap up at 12.40 with best selling author and broadcaster Paul French who joins us on the line from the UK with a fascinating tale of how a wartime artist drew America’s attention to China’s plight under the Japanese occupation in 1941.
