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!
Today on Sunday Escape ... it’s Easter Sunday, so expect a dubious attempt to link songs to the holiday given that Paul has thus far been unable to find what he calls “Easter carols”. To make up for that though, there’ll be loads of new music, with new album releases from Loyle Carner, Jade Bird, and an eagerly awaited album from Lizzo. One of them, surely, will be album of the week, supported by all the latest singles and whatever else has been playing at Pop Fugitive HQ.
Nashua Gallagher will be joining Paul in the studio again, not just to sample Easter eggs and biscuits but to provide more insights and reviews from the world of literature. Paul will also be looking at the increasing popularity of retro video games and consoles, following the announcement of the Capcom Home Arcade and the recent leak of specifications for the Playstation 5.
On top of all that there’ll be another splatter platter, gastronomy corner, and all the usual nonsense. Tune in live from 9.30am and you can get in touch with the show by texting 9384 1424 (Sundays, 9.30am-1pm)
