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.
Paul’s on his own in the studio this week, which gives him a chance to catch up on all the new music for the last few weeks, as well as brand new records from Bishop Briggs, Newcastle folk singer Richard Dawson, Cigarettes After Sex, Caribou, The Allah Las and Green Day (the latter of which have just announced a show in Hong Kong.
There’ll be an album of the week of course, plus Paul’s been doing his best impression of Phileas Fogg this week so he’ll be talking about that. There’ll also be a more serious look at the impact that events in Hong Kong are having on local events and businesses, plus a definitely not serious look at some dubious looking biscuits. Last but by no means least there’s a look at Sega’s new retro mini console the Genesis (or Megadrive) Mini.
There’ll also be all the usual nonsense too, with whatever Paul has been listening to plus whatever comes into his head at the time. Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm!
Among the brand new music on this week’s Sunday Escape you’ll find new tracks from Bon Iver, Sampa The Great, Sofi Tukker, Madeon and Of Monsters and Men. The week also sees new albums from Blood Orange, Africa Express, Palace, Penelope Isles and Banks, one of which will almost certainly be Paul’s album of the week.
Of course there’ll be plenty of older music to back up the new releases, with a good chance of an 80s slant now that Paul has finished watching Stranger Things 3. Talking of which, there’ll be a look at the Stranger Things 3 videogame tie-in, as well as Cadence of Hyrule, the new Legend of Zelda rhythm game on the Nintendo Switch.
If that wasn’t enough, it’s Shark Awareness Day on Sunday too, so Paul will be joined in the studio from 12 by Andrea Richey of the Hong Kong Shark Foundation to talk about shark conservation and what we can do to help, as well as the importance of sharks to our eco-system.
On top of that there’ll be all the usual nonsense and biscuits including a new feature “When Collaborations Go Wrong”. Tune in from 9.30 to1 pm!
