Episode 197: A long track special

January 8, 2017 at 7:25 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

This is the 197th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN 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 is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). The previous show was based around an interview but this current show is a long track special, so there will be lots of epic tracks (& a few slightly less epic ones) for your listening pleasure. There’s no feature album this time, but there is the usual eclectic mixture of music, including lots from 2016 and a few older tracks too. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Don’t forget that I’m looking for listeners to pick their top five favourite bands/artists that we’ve played over the past 10 years (they can be established acts you already knew about or artists that you specifically discovered via the show) for a forthcoming 10th anniversary special. You can pick whoever you like, the only rule is that they must have been played on the show at least once in the past 10 years. You can post your choices as a comment to this post or via the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show Facebook group. I’ll need your votes by early April, 2017.

Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
