Your usual host is taking a bit of a break this time but the show will go on, with regular guest presenter Rebsie Fairholm kindly standing in for him. She’ll be bringing you her own unique take on Eppy Gibbon music again. The feature album this time is ‘Yew’s Paw’ by William D. Drake.

Episode 296: The Living Dead

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). It’s that time of the year again so for this show we have the return of the diabolical Count Eppy Gibbon, who will again be your ghoulish host for this year’s Halloween special. We don’t quite have a feature album on this show, we do feature tracks that appeared on one of the two soundtrack albums for the TV series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, and you’ll hear three tracks from those soundtracks throughout the playlist. Other than that you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music, only with a bit more of a spooky theme this time around.

Episode 295: Judy Dyble Tribute Special

This is the 295th 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). This show is a tribute to the legendary ex-Fairport Convention and Trader Horne singer and instrumentalist Judy Dyble, who sadly passed away on July 12, 2020. We very much consider Judy to have been a part of the Eppy Gibbon family – she was a joint headliner at EppyFest 5 in 2016, along with her Band of Perfect Strangers, and we also interviewed her on the show back in 2014. And Judy in turn warmly supported the show, so a tribute to her life and her music is very much appropriate. We have a feature album on this show, inevitably one that features Judy, ‘Fairport Convention’, the 1968 debut album by the band of the same name, and you’ll hear three tracks from that on the playlist. Other than that you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music, featuring tracks from throughout Judy’s career. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

And we have a feature album on this show, inevitably from 2019, ‘Sub Marine Dreams’, the latest and brilliant album by the aquatic/prog/funk/sea shanty/pop band Seas Of Mirth, and you’ll hear three tracks from that on the playlist.

Episode 289: Best of 2019 – the best of the rest part 3

This is the 289th 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). We start this show on a sad note, as we reflect on the recent and very sad news of the death of the legendary Judy Dyble and there will be a much longer tribute to her on a future show. With the rest of this show I’m continuing my round up of some of the best music from 2019 that didn’t get included in my top 31 albums countdown of last year. And we have a feature album on this show, inevitably from 2019, ‘The Noise Is Unrest’, from the ambient, improvisational, instrumental duo Darkroom, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. 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 288: Escape in Time

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time you heard my half-term special, featuring some of the best music released in the first six months of 2020. Well, for this show there will be some more 2020 music, but the playlist will also be interspersed with music from the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, and the 2010s (we’re skipping the noughties for some reason). And as part of our trip into the past we have a feature album on this show, ‘Weightless’, the 2011 release by Becca Stevens Band so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including tracks played in tribute to the late great Rupert Hine and Bill Rieflin, both of whom we have sadly lost this year. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

And we also have a feature album on this show, ‘Morning Sun’, the 2016 album from Israeli composer, singer & guitarist Gadi Caplan, so you’ll hear three tracks from that.

Episode 281: TV Themes Special 4

This is the 281st 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). The world is looking a bit scarier at the moment what with the panic surrounding COVID-19, so I hope you are all looking after yourselves. I thought that listeners could probably do with being cheered up a bit so this latest show is another TV Themes Special. I’ve done a few of these shows before (back in 2015, 2017 & 2018) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will be just as popular. 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. We have a feature album of sorts, the 1987 compilation ‘The Best of BBC TV’s Themes’, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. I can’t promise the show will keep you well, but it might help you to feel better. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
