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 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).
