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.
On this week’s Sunday Escape there’s another look at the finest new music of the week, with brand new albums from NZCA Lines and The Streets, plus new singles from Rayes, Gerard Way and Fat Trout Trailer Park, which joins the list of interesting band names from this year. Paul and Carolyn will also be playing everything they’ve been listening to this week for your musical delectation.
This includes music from legendary composer Ennio Morricone, who sadly passed away this week, along with legendary country fiddler Charlie Daniels. There’s also a new Extended Play and another Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz, which Paul has promised will be "very, very easy" this week.
On top of all that there’ll be all the usual nonsense, in-depth conversation on meaningless topics, a consideration of the finest non-Morricone soundtracks of all time, and of course biscuits which are Ringo Starr themed to celebrate his 80th birthday. Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!
It’s a packed show on this week’s Sunday Escape, as Paul plays all of his new finds including new releases from Beck, Grace Vanderwaal, Deep Tan, Flight Facilities with Aloe Blacc plus Anna Meredith and albums from Caroline Polachek, Battles, Mark Lanegan Band and Foals. One of the albums will be album of the week and naturally there’ll also be the usual mix of random songs that Paul has been listening to.
Joining Paul in the studio at 10am is Jeff Rotmeyer of ImpactHK, talking about all of the work the charity is doing for the poor and homeless in Hong Kong, and updating us on how the kindness and generosity of the people of Hong Kong is transforming lives. Then from 11am Paul welcomes Andrew Spires, the Director of Rotten Head Festival which sadly was cancelled due to the situation in Hong Kong. He’ll be playing some music, talking about the difficult decision to cancel the event, and the impact that recent events are having on Hong Kong’s social scene. He’ll also be highlighting some of the acts and local breweries who were meant to be at the festival.
On the biscuit front, Paul has been in Japan again, so expect what appear to be custard creams with cheese and angel pies. But who knows? There’s also all the usual nonsense, so tune in from 9.30am to 1pm..
