Episode 283: Best of 2019 – the best of the rest part 1

This is the 283rd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note that 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). The previous show proved to be very popular, but whilst on that show we mainly focused on 2020 music, this time I’m beginning my round up of some of the best music from 2019 that didn’t get included in my top 31 albums countdown of last year. And we have a feature album on this show, inevitably from 2019, ‘Sodden Dogs And Blind, Winged Horses’, from East Midlands musical collective Duir, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours and 21 minutes. Downloaded file is 129 MB.

Episode 282: Pearl and Eddie

This is the 282nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note that 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). I hope you enjoyed the previous show, the latest of our TV Themes Specials. But if that show was largely about nostalgia, with this show we are much more focused on now, with most of the music coming from brilliant 2020 releases, with the occasional older track thrown in for good measure. And last time we had a feature album, but this time we have a feature artist/band, the musician and singer-songwriter Eddie Vedder and the band he helped to found, Pearl Jam, so you’ll hear three tracks featuring Vedder, two with Pearl Jam and one without. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 281: TV Themes Special 4

This is the 281st edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note that 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). The world is looking a bit scarier at the moment what with the panic surrounding COVID-19, so I hope you are all looking after yourselves. I thought that listeners could probably do with being cheered up a bit so this latest show is another TV Themes Special. I’ve done a few of these shows before (back in 2015, 2017 & 2018) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will be just as popular. You’ll hear a host of TV themes, some very familiar & some more obscure, covering many of the usual genres we cover on the show and offering the usual eclectic musical mix. We have a feature album of sorts, the 1987 compilation ‘The Best of BBC TV’s Themes’, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. I can’t promise the show will keep you well, but it might help you to feel better. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 280: A Sense of History

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). The world is looking a bit scarier at the moment what with the panic surrounding COVID-19, so I hope you are all looking after yourselves. But for the Eppy show it’s business as usual, so why not take some time out to sit back and listen to another typically eclectic mix, focusing on lots of 2020 music, and some pre-2020 music too, including one track stretching back to the 1980s. There’s also a feature album this time, with three tracks from ‘Raingods With Zippos’, the 1999 album by Fish. I can’t promise the show will keep you well, but it might help you to feel better. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 279: The House That Jack Built

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Now that I’ve finished counting down my favourite albums of 2019, it’s finally time to start focusing a bit more on 2020 music, and there are lots of examples on this show. But we also feature a lot of pre-2020 music too, stretching from 1967 right up to 2019. There’s also a feature album this time, with three tracks from ‘Easy Winners’, the 1978 album by The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. As always you can expect a typically eclectic show.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed and to all listeners. All the very best for the New Year! 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 next time for the second part of my top 31 countdown of my favourite albums of 2019, covering the albums at numbers 20-11, so I hope to see you then.

Episode 274: The Danger Makers

This is the 274th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note that 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). Following our recent festive edition of the show, this time I’m back with what might be considered more of a ‘normal’ show, plus it’s the last show of 2019. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Silent Sentinel’, the 2015 album by the American band Advent, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including lots of 2019 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes. Downloaded file is 136.9 MB.
