Paul and Carolyn (AKA the Pop Fugitives) are plotting to make their Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Join them on the Sunday Escape to hear the best in new music, including three tracks from their album of the week, along with a carefully curated selection of classics, plus interviews with guests from all over the city and beyond. There’s also occasional live music in the studio and all the details of upcoming music events in Hong Kong.
On top of all that is “Biscuit Review”, now a Sunday Escape institution, a feature perfectly designed to complement the most eclectic mix of music on Radio 3.
There’s some brilliant new music out this week, and on the Sunday Escape Paul and Carolyn will be looking at the best of the week's releases, with new singles from Misterwives and Public Practice and albums from The 1975, Tim Burgess and an album of the week from Badly Drawn Boy.
Joining the Pop Fugitives in the studio is Leigh Powrie of Dragon Water, which produces Hong Kong-brewed “spiked seltzers”, and Leigh will be talking about the inspiration for the drinks, how they are flavoured, and perhaps even biscuit pairings.
Because of course there’ll be biscuits, this week’s Extended Play, and all the usual nonsense as well. Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm on Sunday! .
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul is joined by Fred Croft, who as well as being part of Hong Kong’s ska band The Red Stripes is also a brilliant ceramics artist with a show taking place in May. He’ll be talking about his art, and also picking some soul and reggae tracks to kick off the show.
Later in the show Blair Reeve and Nick Langford will be coming into the studio to talk about their fanzine Press: Release. In an age where fanzines seem to be increasingly online, if they exist at all, Blair and Nick have created a fanzine with just 100 copies for each issue which focuses on experimental and unique music with a Hong Kong focus. They’ll be picking a few tracks too, which may be an obscure but interesting listen …
On top of all that Paul will be picking from the best new music, selecting an album of the week, looking at the latest box set from Tom Petty (the fourth in the last few years) and getting up to all the usual nonsense. Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm!
