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!
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)
