Episode 205: Eppy 10th Birthday: Listener Faves

May 1, 2017 at 10:22 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 205th 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). On this show we’ll have the second part of our celebration of the 10th anniversary. I’ll be playing tracks from the favourite bands/artists that have been played over the past 10 years as voted for by you, the listeners. There should be the usual eclectic mixture of music, though of course the final choice of the bands/artists was all up to you. We’ll also have some birthday wishes and exclusive tracks that didn’t make it onto the last show. There’s no feature album on this show, just lots of music from lots of bands and artists that you apparently love just as much as I do. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to everyone involved with this show, musicians and listeners alike, over the past 10 years. Send me 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 – click on www.facebook.com/groups/eppygibbongroupmembers/ and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. For the next show I’ll be back, but I haven’t decided what the focus will be. I suspect it will be a ‘normal’ show (relatively speaking) as we haven’t had one of those for a while. I hope you’ll join me for that…

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.

Many thanks to Matt and Joff for coming in to do such a great interview and I’m very much looking forward to seeing Sanguine Hum at their live dates in London and of course at EppyFest. Please leave a comment if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!) or if you want to have your say on anything else connected to this podcast. 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. The next show will be a preview of sorts for my long-awaited best of 2012 shows, so I hope you’ll come back for that.
