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 Sunday the Pop Fugitives will be rounding up this year’s Record Store Day releases, revealing whether they’ve found anything special and whether any store was lunatic enough to stock the Fawlty Towers picture disc.
Plus they’ve been getting creative with Nintendo’s new Labo kits for the Switch, can making. Can making cardboard pianos or robots for your controllers really be that exciting?
Paul has been playing God of War, a game loosely based on Norse mythology, and as seems to be the norm, confusingly numbered.
There will also be their album of the week, a heap of new music and biscuits.
This Sunday the Pop Fugitives present a Wedding Present special. With the band set to play in HK on Saturday night, they'll be popping along to catch up with David Gedge to chat everything about both The Wedding Present and Cinerama, breaking chart records and staying power in the indie scene. They will of course also be playing a selection of both their and David's favourite tracks.
Plus, poet Henrik Hoeg will be popping into the studio to chat about his new book, "Away With Words", which sees its official launch on Wednesday night. It follows on from his debut, Irreverent Poems For Pretentious People. Hopefully he'll be up for a reading or two, and for eating biscuits. And the Eight Five Tunes will be popping in to talk about their new song and upcoming gig at the Morrison Cafe.
They'll also be playing a load of new music, getting back into picking their album of the week and paying tribute to Yvonne Staples of The Staple Singers.
