On the Sunday Escape this week Paul and Carolyn play all the best music including new tracks from dodie and Biig Piig plus albums from Gorillaz, Bruce Springsteen and Palace Winter and many more. Along with all the new music there’ll be plenty of old tracks that Paul and Carolyn have been checking out all week, as always.
Saturday was the third Record Store Day of the year, with the previous ones being in September and October. The Pop Fugitives ask whether three record store days is too many and look at some of the releases. That said, every day is record store day for Paul and Carolyn.
On top of all that there will of course be all the usual features. That means album of the week, a tribute to Spencer Davis, a new extended play, and of course biscuits! Tune in on Sunday from 9am to 1pm.

On Tuesday's Backchat, Covid-19 and availability of flu jabs.
The government recently said it was looking at expanding the scope of mandatory coronavirus testing and suggested that those who refused to be tested could face penalties.
Critics say such a move would lead to resistance from the public and damage the trust between the doctors and patients.
Separately, as the flu season approaches, what if the winter surge coincides with another wave of coronavirus infections? Could our medical system handle the situation? Are there enough flu shots?
From 9:00am-9:30am, we'll discuss the continued closure of gazetted beaches, and when the further relaxation of distancing measures will mean that they can reopen.
