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 has loads of brand new records to play on this week’s Sunday Escape, with new music from Mura Masa, Kiesza, David Keenan and Tame Impala plus an unexpected collaboration between Ozzy Osbourne and Elton John. There’ll also be a brand new album of the week from Field Music and whatever other random stuff Paul’s been spinning over the past week.
However it’s not just records which will be playing this Sunday, as there’s another type of playing going on. Joining Paul in the studio is Jacqueline Vong, President and co-founder of Playology. She’s a toy and kids specialist who’ll be talking about what toys are cool, whether the obsession with unboxing and surprise toys continues unabated, and what to expect from toys in 2020. Given that Paul still buys Transformers toys then he’ll no doubt be asking about those, which hopefully won’t result in him playing music from The Transformers: The Movie soundtrack.
On top of all that there’s the usual nonsense, such as biscuit review, plans to take Prince Harry’s place in the British Royal Family, and the in- depth reportage Paul has become known for. It all takes place from 9.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday!
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul celebrates the release of an astonishing number of eagerly awaited albums, in particular The Return from rapper Sampa The Great, which is album of the week, as well as new albums from Metronomy, Alex Cameron, Charli XCX, The Lumineers, Pixies, (Sandy) Alex G and more! There’s also all the best other newly released songs from the week, with highlights from Wrabel, Green Day, The Knocks, FKA Twigs, Bruno Major and The Heavy. If there’s enough time, Paul will play some of the older stuff that’s been hitting the turntable at Pop Fugitive HQ.
There’s also some sad news however, as songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston passed away this week. Paul will play a few tracks from him and those influenced by him, and look at the incredible influence he had on independent music.
On top of all that there’s a look at a seven-inch box set from Slade, another cover version from Bryan Ferry that nobody wanted, and of course biscuits (which actually look decent this week). Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
