Episode 253: Best of 2018, Top 10 Albums

This is the 253rd 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 previous show in which I continued my countdown of my 30 favourite albums of 2018. Back then we covered the albums I placed between 20 and 11 in the countdown, but here we move onto the big top 10, the albums placed between 10 and 1. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from my 10 favourite albums of last year. We also start the show with some new music & with tributes to a couple of people who have sadly been taken from us since last time. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 248: Marvin B Naylor Interview

This is the 248th 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.

I hope you enjoyed the previous festive edition of the show, but we still have one final eppysode for 2018. This show is built around an interview with singer-songwriter & guitarist Marvin B Naylor & he’ll be talking about his own music and also about some of his favourite tracks from other artists. We’ll also have an Eppy Gibbon first – a live session recorded by Marvin in the Eppy Gibbon studio. You can expect a great mixture of music and chat in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 245: Dial A Deadly Number

This is the 245th 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). If you’re reading this you presumably survived the terrors unleashed by the recent Halloween special and hopefully you’re now ready for a more normal show, whatever that means. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Coming Home’, the 2014 solo album by Paul Mallyon so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, with lots of brand new music from 2018, and a few older tracks thrown in for good measure. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed, and to all listeners. Send us comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). If you want to keep up to date with news about the show, EppyFest, or just chat with other listeners, don’t forget that there’s a Facebook group – just search for the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show on Facebook and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. For the next show I’m going to be snowed under with work, but my regular guest presenters Rebsie & Daniel will return with their own take on Eppy Gibbon music, so I hope you’ll return for that.

Episode 243: TV Themes Special 3

This is the 243rd 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). This latest show is another TV Themes Special. I’ve done a couple of these shows before (back in 2015 & then in 2017) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will round out a successful trilogy. 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. There’s no feature album this time but rather a feature TV show, the 1968 children’s serial drama, ‘The Tyrant King’, which was notable for its use of a progressive music soundtrack, so you’ll hear three of the tracks that were used as part of that show’s soundtrack. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 242: Best of 2017 – the best of the rest, part 2

This is the 242nd 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). This latest show is part 2 of my ‘best of the rest of 2017’ & will feature a typically eclectic musical mixture from last year. As part of this we have a feature album, which is ‘Wide Eyed Wild Ride’, the 2017 toytronica album by musical mad scientist Mike Langlie, aka Twink The Toy Piano Band, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And otherwise we’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, all from 2017. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
