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.
It’s a very special show this week, as the Sunday Escape celebrates its fifth anniversary! The first installment took place on December 14, 2014 and Paul will be celebrating the show’s birthday in style with a look back at some of the guests, music, and of course biscuits that have graced the airwaves, with clips from some classic interviews and some memorable (and occasionally haphazard) moments.
There’s plenty of new music too, with new singles from The Roots, MGMT and Dua Lipa, while the eagerly awaited sophomore album from British grime star Stormzy is album of the week. There’ll also hopefully be the sort of celebrations that you would expect from a fifth birthday party (although the bouncy castle Paul has requested seems unlikely), so tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!
On top of all that there’s all the usual nonsense, maybe (just maybe) a Christmas song, and of course biscuits! We have it on authority that this week the biscuits will not poison Paul, so that's something to look forward to... Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm.
IIt’s a packed show on this week’s Sunday Escape. We've got loads of live music news, following the first announcement of some of the artists playing at this year’s Clockenflap festival. Paul will be playing tracks from some of the line-up, as well as talking about who and what he’s most excited about seeing. On the subject of festivals, the week ahead also marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic Woodstock Festival, which took place on 15-18 August 1969, and the date is being marked with the release of a series of box sets (including a 10 LP and a 38 CD one). Paul will play a few live tracks from Woodstock, and talk about why attempts to replicate the festival have so far failed.
In the final hour, music promoter Oliver Breit will be coming into the studio to talk about the four upcoming punk gigs he’s organised, featuring The Damned, Cockney Rejects, From The Jam and, UK Subs.
In addition to all that, there will of course be all the best in new music, an album of the week from Chali 2na and Krafty Kuts, and all the usual nonsense including...biscuits! Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm.
