This is the 210th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This latest show is a return to my review of the musical year of 2016 – you’ve heard my countdown of my 30 favourite albums of last year, but now here’s a chance to hear the best of the rest – some great albums, EPs, singles & tracks that didn’t make the top 30 but still deserve to be heard. There’s no feature album this time but you can expect a typically eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 205: Eppy 10th Birthday: Listener Faves

May 1, 2017 at 10:22 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 205th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show we’ll have the second part of our celebration of the 10th anniversary. I’ll be playing tracks from the favourite bands/artists that have been played over the past 10 years as voted for by you, the listeners. There should be the usual eclectic mixture of music, though of course the final choice of the bands/artists was all up to you. We’ll also have some birthday wishes and exclusive tracks that didn’t make it onto the last show. There’s no feature album on this show, just lots of music from lots of bands and artists that you apparently love just as much as I do. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to everyone involved with this show, musicians and listeners alike, over the past 10 years. 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 – click on www.facebook.com/groups/eppygibbongroupmembers/ and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. For the next show I’ll be back, but I haven’t decided what the focus will be. I suspect it will be a ‘normal’ show (relatively speaking) as we haven’t had one of those for a while. I hope you’ll join me for that…

Episode 204: Eppy 10th Birthday!

April 18, 2017 at 11:46 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 204th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show we’re partying like it’s the show’s 10th anniversary because, well, that’s what it is. We’ll have birthday wishes and exclusive tracks from many of the bands and artists we’ve played regularly on the show over the years, plus I’ll be playing some of my very favourite tracks from the last 10 years, which will result in the usual eclectic mixture of music albeit with a somewhat more celebratory feel. There’s no feature album on this show, just lots of music from lots and lots of bands and artists that we love. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Don’t forget that we’re looking for listeners to pick their top five favourite bands/artists that we’ve played over the past 10 years (they can be established acts you already knew about or artists that you specifically discovered via the show) for a forthcoming 10th anniversary special. You can pick whoever you like, the only rule is that they must have been played on the show at least once in the past 10 years. You can post your choices as a comment to this post or via the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show Facebook group. I’ll need your votes before the end of April, 2017.

Episode 203: Cheltenham and All That Jazz

April 4, 2017 at 9:21 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

This is the 203rd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show I’m previewing this year’s Cheltenham Jazz Festival, as well as focusing a bit more on new 2017 albums & otherwise providing the usual eclectic mixture of music. We have a feature album for the first time in a while, ‘Of The Waves’, the wonderful 2012 album by the Canadian jazz group Hobson’s Choice, so there will be three tracks from that. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Don’t forget that we’re looking for listeners to pick their top five favourite bands/artists that we’ve played over the past 10 years (they can be established acts you already knew about or artists that you specifically discovered via the show) for a forthcoming 10th anniversary special. You can pick whoever you like, the only rule is that they must have been played on the show at least once in the past 10 years. You can post your choices as a comment to this post or via the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show Facebook group. I’ll need your votes by the middle of April, 2017.
