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 festive mood on the Sunday Escape as Paul celebrates the Year of the Rat in style with the finest in tenuously rat-themed music as well as a run through all of the week’s best new releases. This includes the brand new album from the Pet Shop Boys, “Hotspot”, which is their fourteenth studio album and Paul’s album of the week.
As well as celebrating Chinese New Year, Paul is celebrating Burns Night, with some Scottish tracks and possibly even some poetry from Robert Burns. There’s also Paul’s guide to surviving the Chinese New Year holidays and red packet etiquette, which may or may not prove invaluable in the coming days.
Of course there’s all the usual features too, with a tribute to Monty Python great Terry Jones who sadly passed away this week. Plus biscuits. Tune in on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm !
It’s a show full of the best in new music on this week’s Sunday Escape, as Paul goes through some of the finest releases. There are brand new records from Matt Maltese, FKA Twigs, Beck, Graham Coxon, Frank Ocean, and Alicia Keys, plus, since it’s just Paul in the studio this week, there’s a chance to go through all the new music that you may have missed. There’ll also be another album of the week, which won’t be a Christmas album despite the startling number of Christmas releases out at the beginning of November(!).
This week also sees the release of Death Stranding, the eagerly awaited new video game from Hideo Kojima which stars Norman Reedus, Léa Seydoux and Mads Mikkelsen, as well as film directors Guillermo Tel Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn. Paul’s been playing it, and will give his verdict.
On top of that there’s music from the vast number of vinyl reissues, all the other random stuff Paul’s been listening to through the week, and of course in-depth biscuit reporting! Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm.
