This is the 229th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD 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). This time we have a special guest, Stephen Lambe, but he’s not here to talk about Summers End this time but rather he’s picked a special theme that links together all the music on tonight’s show. We also have a feature artist who fits in with this wider theme, as it’s Bill Bruford, in assorted musical guises. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, even whilst celebrating the 50th anniversary of a certain band. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
