主持人：Paul Haswell and Carolyn Wright
Paul and Carolyn (AKA the Pop Fugitives) are plotting to make their Escape every Sunday morning between 9 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.
On this week’s Sunday Escape Paul and Carolyn work their way through all the finest of the week’s new music, with a veritable crate full of records including new LPs from Amyl And The Sniffers, James Blake and Low along with singles from Big Thief, Lana Del Rey and Baba Ali. There’s a tribute to Sarah Harding of Girls Aloud fame also, who sadly passed away this week aged just 39. There are also tributes to two other musicians we lost this week: Magnetic Fields singer Susan Anway and performer and AIDS activist Carl Bean.
All the usual features return of course, with another B side and label of the week. There’s also a listener created Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz, which is possibly the most esoteric and difficult one to date (seriously, it’s practically unsolvable!). All that, plus the usual nonsensical chat and of course biscuits.
Tune in from 9am to 1pm.
Back after a week away, Paul and Carolyn return with a fortnight’s worth of brand new music. That includes tracks from new albums by Jordan Rakei and The Lathums, EPs from Metronomy and Laura Jane Grace, a load of brilliant new singles plus more besides. There’ll be a new album of the week, and some Cabaret Voltaire after pioneering electronic musician Richard H. Kirk passed away this week.
There’s also a discussion of going to the seaside (and possibly not enjoying it) thanks to a song by The Prods, along with all the usual features including a new Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz and B-Side. There’ll also be at least one Bond theme to mark the release of “No Time To Die” which is finally out next week and possibly some Velvet Underground in light of a tribute album which has just been released. All that along with three tracks from the Pop Fugitives’ label of the week (which is Wiiija Records) and hopefully some decent biscuits.
Tune in on Sunday from 9am to 1pm.
