On this week’s Sunday Escape Paul and Carolyn return to look at the latest in new music, which is dominated by the release of Lady Gaga’s brand new album Chromatica, which is her first album since 2016. As well as talking about that the Pop Fugitives will play the best of the week’s new releases with a new album of the week and a look at some of the other great tracks from the last few months. There’ll also be a look at whether 2020 will be an unusual year for music given that so many musicians have been stuck indoors for most of it so far, and some of the albums Paul and Carolyn are most looking forward to.
On top all that, there’s a tribute to Jimmy Cobb, drummer on Kind of Blue, one of the best regarded jazz albums of all time. There’s also a classic Extended Play this week from Stevie Wonder, who celebrated his 70th birthday this month, and all the usual nonsense including an investigation into the perils of finding new biscuits during lockdown. Which will be proper in-depth reportage no doubt. Tune in live on Sunday from 9.30am to 1pm!
What's it like to belong in Hong Kong yet only really discover it for the first time as an adult? Broadcaster Rosie Duffield was born here and went to live overseas as a child. Here she puts on her tourist hat and takes a ten week journey around many of the places and attractions that we often take for granted. Join Rosie on her "HK Staycation" every Saturday from April 25th at 8.30am. This programme was first broadcast in 2016 so some small details may have changed.

This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for more Good Ol' Country with Michael Lance. Apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, he's lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America with his family's Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs, sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country. (Saturdays, 12.05pm-1pm, Facebook: @nebraskamike)

But wait, that's NOT all folks! See you Sunday.
