Episode 312: TV Themes Special 5

This is the 312th edition 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). Last time around, we had a playlist that mainly focused on great 2021 music, with the occasional dip into the past, but this time I’m doing another TV Themes SpecialI’ve done a few of these shows before (back in 2015, 2017, 2018 & 2020) 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 2010 compilation ‘Top Dog (A Retrospective Of Classic TV & Radio Themes 1960-1982)’, 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.

Episode 310: Not International Women’s Day

This is the 310th edition 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). After two shows focusing on interviews, this time around we’re getting back to basics – it’s just me and a lot of music. We do have a vague theme to the show, though, as we are very belatedly reflecting on International Women’s Day with a playlist that mostly focuses on the achievements of women in music. Our feature band for this show reflects that theme as you’ll hear three tracks from the much missed all-female unit The Puppets. Across the show, we’ll have a typically eclectic playlist, including a return to our Corea Talks feature and lots of 2021 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

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.

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.

Total running time: 2 hours and 26 minutes. Downloaded file is 133.2 MB.

I should be back for the next show when I’ll be paying tribute to the maestro himself, the late great Ennio Morricone, who sadly passed away on the 6th of July. On that show you’ll hear tracks composed and influenced by Morricone, interspersed with the usual eclectic playlist, so I hope you’ll come back for that.
