Episode 188: A visit from a certain Ed Wilkins

This is the 188th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. The show is also available via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show my special guest is my fellow Progzilla Radio presenter Ed Wilkins, and we picked the playlist between us, resulting in an eclectic mixture of styles and a combination of new and old music. There’s no feature album on this show, but you can expect the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including a further tribute to the late Padraig Duggan of Clannad, as part of our semi-regular 80s feature, and a return to our semi-regular Cats’ Corner feature. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed, to all listeners, and of course to Ed Wilkins for coming into the Eppy Gibbon studio and choosing so much of the music. Send us 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. I should be back for the next show, when I will have another special guest, Mr Stephen Lambe, and together we’ll be previewing this year’s Summer’s End Progressive Rock Festival, so I hope you’ll join me then.
