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 and Carolyn return to look at the latest in new music, which is dominated by the release of Lady Gaga’s brand new album Chromatica, which is her first album since 2016. As well as talking about that the Pop Fugitives will play the best of the week’s new releases with a new album of the week and a look at some of the other great tracks from the last few months. There’ll also be a look at whether 2020 will be an unusual year for music given that so many musicians have been stuck indoors for most of it so far, and some of the albums Paul and Carolyn are most looking forward to.
On top all that, there’s a tribute to Jimmy Cobb, drummer on Kind of Blue, one of the best regarded jazz albums of all time. There’s also a classic Extended Play this week from Stevie Wonder, who celebrated his 70th birthday this month, and all the usual nonsense including an investigation into the perils of finding new biscuits during lockdown. Which will be proper in-depth reportage no doubt. Tune in live on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!

There’s a packed show on this week’s Sunday Escape, as Paul runs through all of the week’s finest new music, including brand new singles from three of Paul’s favourite artists: Lana Del Rey, Jarvis Cocker and The Divine Comedy. This week’s album of the week is “Sons”, the fifth album from The Heavy.
There’ll be a bit of a classical slant too, as from 11am Paul is joined in the studio by Andrea Fessler from Premiere Performances. This is an organisation which seeks to bring classical artists from around the world to Hong Kong, working to bring education and appreciation of classical music to schools through its Chamber Music In Schools programme. Andrea will be talking about the ethos behind Premiere Performances, and picking a few non-classical tracks for the show.
For the last hour of the show Sybil Thomas (daughter of the legendary Rufus Thomas), Sarah Watson and Paul Thompson (both of the Red Stripes) will be coming into the studio to talk about their awesome Mod Diva Night taking place on 25 May at Grappa’s Cellar. Talking of which, Grappa’s Cellar is a legendary Hong Kong venue which is sadly faced with closure. Karen Tong, who is leading the campaign to save Grappa’s Cellar, will be joining everyone to talk about ways in which we can all try and save one of the few remaining gig venues of its kind on Hong Kong Island.
Tune in to find out how you can help, and to hear some incredible music chosen by Paul and his guests. It all takes place from 9.30am to 1pm.
