Episode 8: Many Happy Returns

December 6, 2007 at 10:19 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

This is the eighth edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This particular show is a festive Christmas/Winter Solstice special, with over 60 minutes of Christmas or winter-themed music, hosted by Eppy Gibbon. The feature album this month fits the show’s theme perfectly as it’s ‘Splendour Bright‘ from The Noel Project, plus there’s the usual diverse selection of tracks and artists, including some interesting versions of classic Christmas songs and brand new material too.
