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 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).
