Episode 251: Best of 2018, Top 30 pt 1

This is the 251st edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. Unfortunately the iTunes subscription no longer appears to be working so either download the show via the link above, or stream the show via Mixcloud (if you become a follower you can find out whenever I add new shows there) and the show can also be found on the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). I hope you enjoyed the recent show from Daniel & Rebsie but with this show your usual presenter returns with part 1 (of 3) of his 30 favourite albums of 2018. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the albums I’ve placed between 30 and 21 in the countdown. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
