Episode 114: Richard Wileman interview

November 2, 2013 at 9:29 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

This is the 114th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. You can also listen via Mixcloud here. For this edition of the show we welcome back Richard Wileman, the main man behind the excellent musical project Karda Estra. There’s no feature album on this show but Richard has chosen most of the music and between his selections and mine there will be the usual diverse mixture of tracks and styles. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.

If you want to keep up to date with news about the show, EppyFest, or just chat with other listeners, don’t forget that there’s a Facebook group – just search for the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show on Facebook and request to join. There will be another show in around two weeks when I’ll be celebrating the 50th anniversary of a certain British science fiction TV programme. I do hope you’ll come back for that.

    Great show Eppy! You should make Richard a regular guest. I liked his selection this time as much as those from a year ago. The Fierce and the Dead, and Knifeworld both seem like great leaps forward from their earlier songs.

      Really glad you enjoyed Tom. We’ll definitely have Richard back on the show. Regular might mean once a year but more if we can manage it. Thanks for the feedback!
