Episode 334: Mission… Highly Improbable

This is the 334th 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 the last show, when the focus was on live music, this time around there’s a mixture of musical tributes to people that we have lost recently, plus a focus on lots of new 2022 music. There’s no feature album this time, but instead we have a feature artist, none other than the late, great Michael Nesmith. You will hear three fabulous tracks, from Nesmith’s time with The Monkees and/or highlighting his great songwriting talents. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including lots of great 2022 music, plus some dips into the past. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
