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 a load of interesting new music out this week, with new tracks from Baba Ali, Emmy The Great, Jonsi, All We Are and more, with most of them being a taste of albums to look forward to in the second half of 2020. Paul and Carolyn will be playing all of those on this week’s Sunday Escape, as well tracks from their album of the week, which could be from Glass Animals, or could be from Whitney, or could be from someone else entirely.
In addition to that there’s a look at the fallout from the comments by Spotify’s CEO on how musicians should create music. Should artists be continually engaged with fans, or should the music be allowed to exist as an art rather than a product? There’s also all the usual features too, such as Knit Hits (yes, it’s still going), the Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz, a new Extended Play and naturally there will be biscuits.
Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!
On this week’s Sunday Escape there’s brand new music from Matt Maltese, Rumer, Orville Peck and more. There’s also an eagerly awaited album of the week from Bright Eyes. In addition, you can hear the finest music Paul and Carolyn have been listening to through the last week, a tribute to Trini Lopez and a track from a collaboration between Catherine Anne Davis and Bernard Butler.
Of course there’s more to the Sunday Escape than that, with another Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz, a new Extended Play, and advice on cooking in ill-equipped kitchens when the restaurants are closed. Completely unrelated to that there’s biscuits as well (naturally). Tune in on Sunday morning from 9.30am to 1pm!
On the Sunday Escape this week Paul will be playing all his picks of the new music out this week, with brand new records from Lupe Fiasco, HAIM, The Game and Digital Farm Animals plus an album of the week from Michael Kiwanuka. There’s also two big reissues, with a 25th anniversary re-release of R.E.M’s “Monster” and a vinyl reissue of Super Furry Animal’s “Guerilla”.
But that’s not all! There’s even more music on this week’s packed show. It feels like festival season in Hong Kong, as Clockenflap just announced its full line up of artists for the music festival taking place on 22, 23 and 24 November. Paul will be celebrating this on the Sunday Escape with music from some of the artists who’ll be playing, and his picks for the festival.
At 10am, Paul is joined by Hillian and Neil Godbold, part of Kitesurf For a Cleaner Ocean. Hillian was the first person, on 1 March this year, to kitesurf across the Pearl River Delta in order to raise awareness of the damage we have done and continue to do to our oceans. She and Nick will be talking about how we can try and reduce the plastic waste ending up in our oceans, and how they are making a difference through kitesurfing.
Then from 11am Carla Acepcion and Nick Flavell, two of the organisers of the Big Picnic, will be with Paul in the studio. The Big Picnic returns to Discovery Bay on Saturday 9 November for its 13th year, and in case you’ve never heard of the Big Picnic it’s an all day festival for all the family that takes place each year with live music, community events, and loads of food and drink. Artists include The Unsung Heroes and Shum King Mansion. The whole event is a great way to sample local food and drink, see local bands, support local artists and raise money for Plastic Free Seas Hong Kong.
Of course there's also all the usual biscuits and nonsense too - tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
