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 packed show on the Sunday Escape as Paul is joined in the studio by two people from the food and beverage industry, Holly Graham and Tom Egerton. Holly is the Managing Editor of DRiNK Magazine Asia, and the founder of Asia Women In Booze community, and will be talking to Paul about what it’s like to work in the bar industry in Hong Kong, as well as the forthcoming Asia Speed Rack competition.
Tom has 17 years’ experience of working in kitchens, bars and restaurants around the world. He's a specialist in sustainability in the industry and works for Hong Kong’s arm of Proof and Company as a Spirits Evangelist, part of one of the most well-regarded teams in the cocktail and spirits industry around the globe. Holly and Tom will be choosing music and talking about their experiences.
That’s not all of course! As always, Paul will be playing all the best of the new music, with an album of the week and a track from Mercury Music Prize winner Dave, as well as another in Paul’s series of dubious cover versions by Bryan Ferry. And of course there'll be biscuits!
It all takes place from 9.30am to 1pm.
It’s a music heavy show on the Sunday Escape this week, as Paul goes through new tracks from Foster The People, M83, Oh Wonder, Sofi Tukker and more, with new albums from John Mayer, Bat For Lashes and an eagerly awaited album from Mahalia. One of them may well be album of the week. There’ll also be a batch of tracks from brooding new wave bands as Paul celebrates the release of a session album from Echo & the Bunnymen.
That’s not all of course. Paul’s been travelling so there’s bound to be some exotic biscuits. There’ll also be a tribute to LaShawn Daniels, the award-winning songwriter who worked with legends such as Destiny’s Child. He sadly passed away this week at the age of 41. Then, naturally, there’s whatever Paul’s been listening to all week plus all the usual nonsense! Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
