Episode 300: The Gift of the Wheelman

This is the 300th edition (sorta) 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). I hope you enjoyed the previous very special and bittersweet show. This time, however, it’s this year’s festive edition, so you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music only this time all the tracks will have some form of wintry/Christmas/solstice theme. We have a feature album this time around, ‘The Essential Now That’s What I Call an a.P.A.t.T. Christmas Vol 1’, the 2019 compilation album by a.P.A.t.T., which contains 12 songs released over 13 years as part of the band’s annual challenge to record and release a song for each day of Christmas, and you’ll hear three tracks from that across the course of the show. You can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including some new music from 2020, some older tracks of various vintages thrown in for good measure, and a tribute to the late, great Harold Budd. All-in-all, expect a unique festive-themed extravaganza with lots of great music and pleasant surprises. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 273: It’s A Wonderful Job

This is the 273rd 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 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). I’d like to thank Rebsie & Daniel for putting the excellent previous show together. I’m also happy to be back to present this year’s festive edition of the show, so you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music only this time all the tracks will have some form of wintry/Christmas/solstice theme. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Silent Night’, the 2011 album by the Nashville based harpist/singer/songwriter Timbre, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including some new music from 2019, and some older tracks of various vintages thrown in for good measure. All-in-all expect a unique festive-themed extravaganza with lots of great music and pleasant surprises.

Episode 261: For Dad

This is the 261st 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 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). This is very much an atypical edition of the show given that it is a musical tribute to my Dad who sadly passed away recently. There was not a huge overlap between my Dad’s tastes and those of a typical Eppy Gibbon playlist, but I’ve tried to balance things out so you can still expect a typically eclectic mixture of music, including several tracks that my Dad loved and others that have some connection with him, however tenuous. There’s no feature album this time around, but hopefully you will find much to enjoy on the show all the same. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

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.

Episode 236: Half-term report, 2018

This is the 236th 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 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 show entirely focuses on music from 2018, as I focus on some of 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 with, in all but one case, only one track being played from each artist/release, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show, though we will be having a feature label, of sorts, as we’ll be playing tracks from a large number of albums released via the Bad Elephant Music label. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 7. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 222: Esprit de Corps

This is the 222nd 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). Your regular host is back to bring you a typically diverse and eclectic musical mix to help you see out 2017. The feature album is from 2004, ‘Has Been’, by William Shatner so you’ll hear three tracks from this remarkable (& surprisingly good) album. Otherwise you can expect the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including some teasers about Eppy‘s favourite albums of 2017 and a preview of next year’s EppyFest 7. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
