November 11th Pink Floyd will drop The Early Years Box Set. An atom heart mother load of rare recordings from just about every film and/or radio and television appearance the band has ever done. This podcast, part 1 of 2, is a small sampling of some of the material featured in the box set from 1965 to 1969. Here’s the playlist! Enjoy! Please leave your thoughts and comments.
This is not a new podcast but its a podcast I’ve had hidden since 2011 just for fun. On occasion I would post it to Floydpodcast’s Facebook Fan Page and that was probably only two or three times over the years. So if you have it already, cool and if not…here you go! I decided it was time to include this on the website for easy access and for all to see. Recorded at Wembley Arena, in London, between the 15th and 17th of November 1974. Here’s the playlist
Here it is, the next installment of Brain Damage from Moscow during Pink Floyd’s “Another Lapse Tour” This is a podcast I’ve had on the back-burner for a few years. The quality is not up to my standards but this is a rare recording of a historical show for the band. I’ve tried to “clean” it up and doctor it the best I could. Here’s the playlist!
Most of this is from the “David Gilmour In Concert” video that was recorded and broadcast by MTV and released onto VHS in 1984 (now out of print). All three nights at Hammersmith Odeon, London, were filmed. This is the last night, 30. April, 1984 with special guests Roy Harper and Nick Mason. Some tracks had to be sourced elsewhere to make this a complete concert. I explain in the podcast. Here’s the playlist. Hope you enjoy! Please consider a small donation, if you do. Thank you.
This particular episode has no theme. Its just a mixed bag of recent sorts. Go with the flow and enjoy the show. As always however, the playlist is embedded in the mp3 file info. Here’s the playlist. I’m sure you’ll find it interesting. Please let me know what you think!
Many of you have asked me which Gilmour shows I’ll be attending in NYC. I wish I could say all but I’ll only be attending the MSG gig tomorrow on the 11th.
Those of you who are interested in meeting up… You’ll find me at Local West Cafe next to MSG from 4p till around 7:30p. I’ll be on the roof deck (weather permitting). Hope to see you there.
This podcast developed out of another idea I had. For this installment, we turn to our fine feathered friends. Its amazing how many different birds are mentioned or heard in Pink Floyd’s music… There’s mention of an Albatross, Kingfisher, Owl, Swan, Jackdaw, Woodpecker, Pigeon, Dove, Vulture, Magpie, Sparrow and the Eagle. I present to you an ornithological podcast. Here’s the playlist!

I’ve been wanting to feature this particular gig for a long time but I’m reminded why I’ve avoided it for so long. Nonetheless, its a unique gig because it was the only stop on the entire Division Bell Tour where the band performed Marooned.
You can hear the taper (who was not so close to the stage) was concerned with getting caught. Pink Floyd’s management instructed promoters to have security at each facility, confiscate any recording device. The quality of the recording suffers a little because of this, so it was extremely difficult to doctor up. I did the best I could. I hope it sounds okay on your end but some EQ tweaking might be necessary. Here is the playlist and here’s a ticket scan.

Everybody’s got somewhere they call home. Take me home, take me home. I feel like going home, I want to go home, I wanna go home. If I were with you, I’d be home and dry. If you’re alone, I’ll come home. Open your heart, I’m coming home but I got no navigator to find my way home, to find my way home to your smile. Back at home, what holds me here. Nice to be at home, home again. Hometown, staying home, home, home again. Better stay home. I must stay at home, a stranger at home. Home and done. That’s the playlist.
Ever since Roger released his Wall soundtrack, I’ve been playing around with recreating the entire evening’s experience, much like what I originally wanted to do for the Intermission podcast back in February. This time I used the the film soundtrack but discovered that Roger removed several bits from the original live performance so I, very carefully, put them back using material from the June 2011 Duesseldorf gig. Here’s the playlist. Enjoy this little Christmas gift!
