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.
There’s some brilliant new music out this week, and on the Sunday Escape Paul and Carolyn will be looking at the best of the week's releases, with new singles from Misterwives and Public Practice and albums from The 1975, Tim Burgess and an album of the week from Badly Drawn Boy.
Joining the Pop Fugitives in the studio is Leigh Powrie of Dragon Water, which produces Hong Kong-brewed “spiked seltzers”, and Leigh will be talking about the inspiration for the drinks, how they are flavoured, and perhaps even biscuit pairings.
Because of course there’ll be biscuits, this week’s Extended Play, and all the usual nonsense as well. Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm on Sunday! .
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..
