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 !
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!
