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.
There’s another attempt at a more literary show on this week’s Sunday Escape, as Paul is joined again by Nashua Gallagher to give her thoughts on what she’s been reading, and what she’s been up to in the world of poetry. As if that wasn’t enough culture for one show Paul will also be looking at the forthcoming Liars’ League event and the Hong Kong Spoken Word Festival.
But fear not, it’s not all culture and literature. Paul will be playing all the best new music, from a week which is light on new singles but sees new releases from Ezra Furman, Miya Folick and Kaiser Chiefs. He’s also been playing the latest Sonic the Hedgehog racing game, called Team Sonic Racing.
As if that wasn’t enough there’s all the usual features such as Guess Who’s Dead?, plus a new album of the week. There will also, hopefully, be better biscuits than last week … Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm to find out!
On this week’s Sunday Escape there’ll be news from Sonar Hong Kong 2019, the electronic music and technology festival which took place on Saturday, as well as a long awaited album of the week from LSD (that’a Labrinth, Sia and Diplo) plus a What’s In The Box Set courtesy of Curtis Mayfield.
English stand up comedian Jason Strickland will be joining Paul in the studio to talk about his life as a comedian in the UK, and in Hong Kong since 2015. He’ll also be choosing some of his favourite records.
On top of all this, there’ll be a proper tribute to Scott Walker, one of Paul’s favourite artists who passed away on March 22. Throughout the show there’ll be music from the various stages of his eclectic career, plus songs from the artists who influenced, and were influenced by him. There’ll also be a games review of “Dangerous Driving”, a spiritual successor to the Burnout series of driving video games, and of course the world famous (sort of) gastronomy corner.
Last, but by no means least, Paul will also be playing all the best in new music, plus whatever else he’s been listening to. Tune in live from 9.30 to 1pm on Sunday, and if you want to get in touch with the show you can text on 93841424. (Sundays, 9.30am-1pm).
