Episode 287: Half-term report, 2020

This is the 287th 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). Many thanks to Rebsie & Daniel for sitting in for me on the last show. But I’m back this time with a show that entirely focuses on music from 2020, as I bring you some of the best music to be found on albums, EPs and singles released so far this year. I’m trying to cram in as much music as possible from many different releases, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show. 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 and to all listeners. 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.

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 262: Half-term report, 2019

This is the 262nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Following the last show, where I offered a musical tribute to my Dad, this time we’re in more traditional Eppy Gibbon musical territory. This show entirely focuses on music from 2019, as I focus on some of the best music to be found on albums, EPs and singles released so far this year. I’m trying to cram in as much music as possible from many different releases, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 8. 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 and to all listeners. 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. For the next show I’ll be very busy with work again so for the 250th eppysode I’ll be leaving you in the very capable hands of regular guest presenters Rebsie & Daniel who will return with their own take on Eppy Gibbon music, so I hope you’ll join them for that.

Episode 248: Marvin B Naylor Interview

This is the 248th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. Unfortunately the iTunes subscription no longer appears to be working so either download the show via the link above, or stream the show via Mixcloud (if you become a follower you can find out whenever I add new shows there) and the show can also be found on the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). I hope you enjoyed the previous festive edition of the show, but we still have one final eppysode for 2018. This show is built around an interview with singer-songwriter & guitarist Marvin B Naylor & he’ll be talking about his own music and also about some of his favourite tracks from other artists. We’ll also have an Eppy Gibbon first – a live session recorded by Marvin in the Eppy Gibbon studio. You can expect a great mixture of music and chat in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours. Downloaded file is 110 MB.
