Radio 3 Highlights

Today's Focus
 The latest economic data post-Brexit shows UK economic activity falling to its lowest level in over 7 years and Eurozone activity at 18 month lows. However, US manufacturing hits a 9 month high. At the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in Chengdu, China warns that it cannot single-handedly support the world economy. In the markets, investors send the US dollar to a four month high and oil to a 2 month low and pour a record amount of cash into emerging markets. Meanwhile mainland Chinese investors continue to chase Hong Kong stocks with the southbound quota now more than 80% full. On today’s Money Talk, we bring you up to date on the top business and finance stories with Alex Wong of Ample Capital and Erwin Sanft, from Macquarie Securities. We shall also go up to Shanghai for our regular Monday view from China with Ben Cavender of the China Market Research Group.
After 08:30, we shall be joined by one of Hong Kong’s most admired and renowned businessmen and entrepreneurs, Jim Thompson, chairman and founder of global relocation and logistics firm Crown Worldwide Holdings. He will talk to us about how he built the company from its humble origins into a global leader in its field and his views on Hong Kong’s business future. We shall also take a look at the impact social media and live streaming are having on the world of music. Joining us on the phone from Nashville, Tennessee are Katherine and Amy Cimorelli of US all-girl band and You Tube sensation, Cimorelli. (8am-9am, email to,  text to 63 93 59 25,facebooktwitter)


The Wide Open Road
is your chance to take a road trip right around Australia from the comfort of your own radio. Veteran music journalist Jarrod Watt puts you in the front seat for a journey tracing the modern day song lines of Australia, from the surf beaches of Sydney to the beer-soaked carpets of Melbourne's famed live venues along winding country roads to Adelaide to the gun barrel highways of the outback and beyond. Along the way you'll find out about the tiny country town that gave us Nick Cave, and how the world's most isolated city gave us the man known as the Godfather of Grunge, and never mind the English - how punk music really got its start in Brisbane. Wind the window down and put your feet on the dashboard for a colourful ride through Australia's modern music geography and history!
