Thanks to all the musicians who contributed and to all listeners too, but a special thanks to the members of Monobody for their contributions to the interview and their musical selections. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). 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, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. Coming soon, a new show from the despicable Count Eppy Gibbon who will be celebrating Halloween belatedly, so I hope you’ll join him for a show filled with witches, ghosts, murders and goblins.
