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.
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul celebrates the release of an astonishing number of eagerly awaited albums, in particular The Return from rapper Sampa The Great, which is album of the week, as well as new albums from Metronomy, Alex Cameron, Charli XCX, The Lumineers, Pixies, (Sandy) Alex G and more! There’s also all the best other newly released songs from the week, with highlights from Wrabel, Green Day, The Knocks, FKA Twigs, Bruno Major and The Heavy. If there’s enough time, Paul will play some of the older stuff that’s been hitting the turntable at Pop Fugitive HQ.
There’s also some sad news however, as songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston passed away this week. Paul will play a few tracks from him and those influenced by him, and look at the incredible influence he had on independent music.
On top of all that there’s a look at a seven-inch box set from Slade, another cover version from Bryan Ferry that nobody wanted, and of course biscuits (which actually look decent this week). Tune in 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)
