Paul Haswell (AKA the Pop Fugitive) is plotting to make his Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Join him every Sunday on the Sunday Escape to hear the best in music, with plenty of new records including tracks from his album of the week, as well as interviews with guests from all over the city and beyond. There’s also occasional live music in the studio plus all the details of upcoming music events in Hong Kong.
On top of all that is “Biscuit Review”, now a Sunday Escape institution, to complement the most eclectic mix of music on Radio 3.
It’s another packed show on this week’s Sunday Escape, with brand new music from Lack of Afro, LA Priest, Caroline Rose and The Strokes, and the long awaited new album from Tame Impala as well as a new solo album from Nathaniel Rateliff. Paul will be playing all of those and more, as well as choosing an album of the week and looking at the return and sort of return of a couple of bands from the Britpop era.
It’s been another funny old week in Hong Kong, with many of us stuck indoors as we try to avoid the coronavirus, so Paul will also be looking at things to do when you are at home and have watched everything there is to watch (other than listening to music, obviously) and are fighting off cabin fever. It’s also Valentine’s weekend which is an excuse to play a few alternative love songs, or maybe just lots of Barry White, we’ll have to see.
On top of all that there is of course all of the usual nonsense, including biscuits. It all takes place on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!
On this week’s Sunday Escape there'll be loads of brand new music mixed with awesome old music, tales from Paul’s trip to London and Madrid, and a look at an inspiration hip hop-fused collective who are visiting Hong Kong. Paul will be welcoming San Francisco Bay Area musical group Ensemble Mik Nawooj into the studio. They are a group that fuse together classical music, jazz and hip hop, and they will be playing at Freespace Happening in West Kowloon later in the day. The group’s founder, JooWan Kim, will be bringing along MCs Do D.A.T. and Sandman to talk about the group’s influences and their trip to Hong Kong.
This week also saw the tragic death of Keith Flint of The Prodigy. There’ll be a look at his influence, and his music, in particular his influence on shaping one of the most influential dance music groups.
While travelling, Paul uncovered the dark world of celebrity endorsed biscuits. Is it a new form of connecting with fans, or just a cynical marketing ploy? There’ll be an in-depth review and tasting of two such biscuits currently available overseas and a look at what celebrity endorsed biscuits could mean for Asia.
Last, but by no means least, there’ll be all the usual features, with a new Splatter Platter and Album of the Week. Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm! (Sundays, 9.30am-1pm)
