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 joined in the studio by Paul Cook. Not only is he the drummer in the punk band, The Professionals, who are set to play Grappa's on Monday, he was also one of The Sex Pistols. In honour of that, and to pay tribute to Pete Shelley of another legendary band, Buzzcocks, who sadly passed away this week, aged only 63, they'll be playing a whole heap of punk classics.
Plus Paul has been playing Super Smash Bros Ultimate, a game in which Nintendo characters bash each other senseless. The question is, who will Paul choose to play as. Carolyn won't be at all surprised if that happens to be Yoshi.
They'll also be sifting through the new releases, in the hope that they aren't all Christmas songs, playing the best of them, choosing an album of the week and eating biscuits.
This Sunday the Pop Fugitives will be joined in the studio by the organisers of the Hong Kong spoken word festival, which kicks off later in the week, featuring performances, improv, poetry and more.
They’ve also been watching The Killing of a Sacred Deer, the latest film from director Yorgos Lanthimos, who was behind a film they both loved, The Lobster.
Plus they’ll have a heap of new music, be choosing their album of the week, looking at what’s in the box set, eating biscuits and more.
