Carolyn Wright and Paul Haswell (AKA the Pop Fugitives) are plotting to make their Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Carrying on from where they left off on Saturday nights on RTHK Radio 3, join them to hear excellent music, including tracks from their album of the week, as well as interviews and live music in the studio about upcoming events they think you ought to hear about, plus a selection of their favourite tracks from a different year each week.
Added to that they’ll be reviewing new movies, alongside much irreverent chit chat and interviews about food, drink and fun in HK, there’ll even be a bit of sport!
This week the Pop Fugitives will be joined in the studio by Liz Thomas, co-founder of Food Savior. It's a brilliant idea to stop great food from being wasted and enabling you to get a bargain! She'll explain exactly how it works.
Plus Paul has been on the case, solving a murder mystery with very funky music. He'll be telling all (except whodunnit of course) about The Sexy Brutale.
And they'll have a heap of new music, an album of the week and biscuits hand delivered from England!
There’s a packed show full of music and mayhem on this week’s Sunday Escape. Paul and Carolyn will be taking a look at art in virtual reality by speaking to Sophie Chui of Kaleidoscope VR, Brett Heil of The Pulse VR and Souraya Kessaria of the Consulate General of France, who are each taking part in events in Hong Kong to showcase the experiences that virtual reality can offer, with presentations of some of the most exciting VR art and movie projects and a chance to create a full VR movie in just 48 hours.
Darkness Into Light is a 5km walk taking place on 6 May 2017 at 150 locations around the world to raise awareness of suicide and self-harm, and raise money for local charities working to help the suicidal and those affected by suicide. For the first time, it’s coming to Hong Kong, and David Simpson and Monique Hansen, two of the organisers of Hong Kong Darkness Into Light, will be coming into the studio to talk about the event and how you can get involved.
On top of all that, Paul will be talking about his trip to Tokyo and all the records he’s brought back to play on the show, the Pop Fugitives will once again be exploring some of the exotic foods (well, biscuits) of the world, and you can expect all of the best in new and old music including album of the week and the usual nonsense.
This Sunday the Pop Fugitives be talking about the upcoming performances of Arthur Miller's play about the Salem trials, The Crucible. To help with that, they'll be joined in the studio by director Nicole Garbellini and a few of the members of the cast, including Tom McLean, Susan Morgan, Mimi Burns and Susan Lavender. You can see the Aurora theatre production at the Sheung Wan Civic Centre from Feb 16th to 19th.
They're also very excited about the new Lego Batman movie, combining a couple of childhood favourites, hopefully it won't disappoint, and will keep its tongue firmly in its cheek! Plus, Paul has been transported back to Japan in the early 1600s to fight a variety of supernatural monsters, playing Nioh.
Finally we will of course be picking our album of the week, playing some themed tunes and eating some Valentine's treats. And no, that wont be ridiculously overpackaged and overpriced strawberries...
