The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show we’ll be having a ‘normal’ show (relatively speaking) as we haven’t had one of those for a while. There will be a mixture of new and old music, including lots of tracks from new 2017 albums, plus a tribute to the late, great drummer Clive Brooks, and a return to our semi-regular 80s & Cats’ Corner features. There will be the usual eclectic mixture of music, crossing various genres and featuring bands & acts from all over the world. And we have a feature album too: ‘The Aviary’, the 2015 album from American Jazzy Mystic Katie Haverly, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

This is the 205th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it.

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). On this show we’ll have the second part of our celebration of the 10th anniversary. I’ll be playing tracks from the favourite bands/artists that have been played over the past 10 years as voted for by you, the listeners. There should be the usual eclectic mixture of music, though of course the final choice of the bands/artists was all up to you. We’ll also have some birthday wishes and exclusive tracks that didn’t make it onto the last show. There’s no feature album on this show, just lots of music from lots of bands and artists that you apparently love just as much as I do. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
