Episode 218: The Gravediggers

This is the 218th 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 appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). It’s Halloween time again so for this show we have the return of the diabolical Count Eppy Gibbon, who will again be your ghoulish host for this year’s Halloween special. Our feature EP this time has a supernatural theme – the ‘Ghost’ EP by Richard Wileman, best known to Eppy Gibbon listeners as the man behind the Karda Estra musical project, and you’ll hear three tracks from Richard’s EP tonight, plus you can expect the usual eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
