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.

Episode 245: Dial A Deadly Number

This is the 245th 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). If you’re reading this you presumably survived the terrors unleashed by the recent Halloween special and hopefully you’re now ready for a more normal show, whatever that means. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Coming Home’, the 2014 solo album by Paul Mallyon so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, with lots of brand new music from 2018, and a few older tracks thrown in for good measure. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 243: TV Themes Special 3

This is the 243rd 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). This latest show is another TV Themes Special. I’ve done a couple of these shows before (back in 2015 & then in 2017) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will round out a successful trilogy. 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. There’s no feature album this time but rather a feature TV show, the 1968 children’s serial drama, ‘The Tyrant King’, which was notable for its use of a progressive music soundtrack, so you’ll hear three of the tracks that were used as part of that show’s soundtrack. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

This is the 242nd 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). This latest show is part 2 of my ‘best of the rest of 2017’ & will feature a typically eclectic musical mixture from last year. As part of this we have a feature album, which is ‘Wide Eyed Wild Ride’, the 2017 toytronica album by musical mad scientist Mike Langlie, aka Twink The Toy Piano Band, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And otherwise we’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, all from 2017. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours & 15 minutes. Downloaded file is 123.51 MB.

Episode 235: A Surfeit of H2O

This is the 235th 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). Your regular host returns with this show (he’s very grateful for Daniel Staniforth & Rebsie Fairholm filling in for him on the last show), which largely focuses on new music from 2018, but with the occasional diversion into the past. As part of the latter we have a feature album, which is ‘Northern Folk’, the 2015 debut album by Swedish folk prodigy Jenny Lysander so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And otherwise 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.
