主持人：Paul Haswell and Carolyn Wright
Paul and Carolyn (AKA the Pop Fugitives) are plotting to make their Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Join them on the Sunday Escape to hear the best in new music, including three tracks from their album of the week, along with a carefully curated selection of classics, plus interviews with guests from all over the city and beyond. There’s also occasional live music in the studio and all the details of upcoming music events in Hong Kong.
On top of all that is “Biscuit Review”, now a Sunday Escape institution, a feature perfectly designed to complement the most eclectic mix of music on Radio 3.
Thankfully whilst most of the world is stuck indoors there is a load of new music to entertain on this week’s Sunday Escape, as Paul and Carolyn play new tracks from Talk Show, Run The Jewels. Sorry and Loud Luxury amongst others, with a new album from Childish Gambino and a live album from Father John Misty which is with an orchestra to boot!
There’s also an interview with Andy Curtain of new comedy club The Riff, and he’ll be talking about the challenges of opening a comedy club in these troubled times as well as the sort of acts you can expect to see. He’s also talking about live comedy and its importance. Paul will be talking about the two big new video game releases, Doom Eternal and Half Life Alyx, both sequels in two of the most famous game franchises of all time one of which is exclusively in virtual reality.
On top of all that there’s all the usual features, with an Extended Play from Pet Shop Boys and of course biscuits! Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!
There are many good reasons to stay indoors at the moment, but arguably the second best reason is to listen to this week’s Sunday Escape with Paul and Carolyn, which features a massive amount of brand new music. There are new singles from Orville Peck, Ren Harvieu, The Allergies, Sonic Boom and Biig Piig, and albums from Empress Of, Purity Ring, Thundercat and Yves Tumor, one of which will likely be album of the week. There’s also an album reissue from Zero 7 and a symphonic reinterpretation from Thievery Corporation who are following the ongoing trend of getting an orchestra in.
Sadly we’ve lost more great people this week to COVID-19, and there’ll be a tribute and music from some of them. There’s also a review of Animal Crossing New Horizons, the latest instalment in the long running life simulation, and the remake of Resident Evil 3, in which you try to survive and escape from a city infected with a zombie-creating virus.
On top of all that there are all the usual features too, with an Extended Play from kraut rock legends Neu!, plus of course another in-depth dose of reporting into the world of biscuits. Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!
