Episode 257: Room Without a View

This is the 257th 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). Following the last show, which revolved around a tribute to my late friend and regular Eppy Gibbon listener, Ed Elloway, we now have another that revolves around a tribute to someone we’ve lost this year, as our feature artist is none other than the late, great Peter Tork. You will hear three fabulous tracks, either solo or from Tork’s time with The Monkees, which highlight his many musical talents. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including lots of great 2019 music, plus the occasional classic track from the past. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 247: Twas the Episode Before Christmas

This is the 247th 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’d like to thank Rebsie & Daniel for putting the last excellent 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, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’, the 1965 album by the Vince Guaraldi Trio so you’ll hear two tracks taken directly from that, plus one track directly inspired by music from the album. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including some new music from 2018, 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. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
