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!
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!
