This is the 115th 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 celebrate the 50th anniversary of the TV series Doctor Who – all the music on this show will have some connection to the show, even if sometimes the link will be extremely tenuous. There’s no feature album on this show but we do have a feature track – you’ll be hearing several different interpretations of the Doctor Who theme plus 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.
