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! .
It’s Father’s Day on Sunday, at the end of a tumultuous week, so the Sunday Escape will be doing its best to reflect that with Paul playing (possibly tenuous) dad-related records, which might be just Dire Straits but if you have any better suggestions then do message the show, as well as honouring some famous dads such as Darth Vader.
In addition to that Paul will of course be looking at all the week’s new music, with new releases from Bat For Lashes, Mattiel, The Raconteurs, Jordan Rakei and Bill Callahan, plus the release of Madonna’s latest album and indeed latest reinvention entitled “Madame X”. There’ll also be a run through of whatever else Paul has been listening to lately, as well as album of the week.
As if that wasn’t enough, Paul will also be looking at the developments coming out of E3 this week, and of course whatever biscuits happen to come his way. Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
