Episode 333: Wish You Were Here

This is the 333rd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). As I was putting this show together, the sun was shining, and I was thinking ahead to my own return to live music – not only with the forthcoming return of EppyFest but also because in April I will hopefully be attending my first live gigs since 2020, including some at this year’s Cheltenham Jazz Festival. So, on this show, there’s no feature album, but instead I’m going to be featuring music from a number of acts that, all being well, you’ll be able to see perform live in the weeks and months to come. You can expect a great mixture of music on this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, including music from some 2022 releases, plus some dips into the past. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
