This is a follow up of sorts to the “My Favorite Things” podcast #219. For this, it’s my favorite solo bits from the latest to earliest of each solo effort. We hear David’s new material and Roger’s new song debuted at this year’s Newport Folk Festival. Also included is material from Nick, Rick and Syd’s solo efforts as well (of course). Hope you enjoy it. Al always, thanks for listening! Here’s the playlist
Finally, here it is. Recorded 2. July 1977 from the most often requested series of gigs during 1977 at Madison Square Garden, NYC. Most recordings between the 1st and the 4th of July don’t live up to my high standard but there is this one master recording and its explosively excellent. I tweaked it up just a little but for the most part, it didn’t need much. We starting lighting things off with a Richard Wright track. Please donate if you can. Thank you. Here’s the playlist!

Here’s a suggested theme idea… Floyd songs with numbers in the title. Some strange things happen with numbers. Those with an interest in numerology should like this one. Also included is a fresh clean soundboard ONLY version of Rogers’ Pros & Cons from Chicago 1984 and we get to hear a sample of some new* stuff too! Here’s the playlist
NOTE: as of 27. July 2015, the 40 second preview of David’s material has been removed at the request of the people handling David’s copyright interests. Its is my intention to respect such requests that do not fall within my blanket license that allows me to play other copyright material.
If you loved the Raw Sound of Thunder or any of the other Momentary Lapse soundboard podcasts, then you’re going love this! Its an early Momentary Lapse of Reason tour, soundboard recording (post “Echoes”, but don’t worry, I got you covered). Live at the Brendan Byrne Meadowlands Arena, East Longmeadow, New Jersey, 11 October 1987. Here’s the playlist!
I often get asked, “What’s your favorite Floyd song”? That’s easy but I was recently asked, “If you had to pick one favorite song from each of Pink Floyd’s fifteen albums, what would they be”? Not so easy. I pondered over many tracks from each album and it was difficult to narrow it to just one but I did it and this podcast is the result. See if you agree. Here’s the playlist.
It’s been a long time since I featured one of Roger’s Wall gigs. This one is special. I explain in the podcast but you can look at the playlist if you’re that curious.
When I attend concerts, I enjoy the pre-show and intermission house music as much as the show itself. Usually its just whatever the production crew feels like playing but with Roger it’s different. Roger’s crew uses every opportunity to throw subtle hints and references found deep in the wall. Here’s the playlist. Please enjoy the “full show”.
Here is it, the first podcast of 2015 as floydpodcast.com enters its 10th year! I never thought I’d be making these podcasts for as long as I have but I have you to thank for it’s continuing success!
No special theme for this one… I just went with the flow. Hope you enjoy and please leave a comment! Here’s the playlist.

Live from The Rainbow Theater in Finsbury Park, London. This was the second of two shows on the 4th of November 1973. This particular gig started at 9pm and was done to benefit former Soft Machine front-man Robert Wyatt who had broken his spine after falling from a third floor window during a party.
This was the last time Pink Floyd performed the same night with their friends, Soft Machine apart from Nick Mason who occasionally played drums for Robert Wyatt in solo projects, including Nick Mason’s Fictitious Sports. This was also the last concert of 1973, before Pink Floyd’s 1974 French Tour and it was the last time material from Obscured By Clouds would be performed live. It’s a great performance! Here’s the setlist.
