Desert Trip FoH

FoH is for Front of House.  This podcast is chuck full of goodies. Roger breaks out three new songs and David adds a guitar solo!  For this episode, we go back to the desert for a crystal clear, front of house recording of Roger’s first weekend performance at Desert Trip, Empire Polo Grounds Indio, California 9. October 2016. It’s a long one. Here’s the playlist

Us + Them – Greensboro

This is almost like a continuation from the last podcast. It picks up where the other left off.  Lines were very long to get in the venue.  Roger tours with 18 trucks full of gear for his 2017 Us+ Them North American Tour.  Greensboro Coliseum only has three bays to unload, which made it a nightmare for the roadies because it badly slowed their set up time.  They managed to get things set up just in time but not before crowds were supposed to be let in.  Anyway, this is an excellent recording from the floor, center stage.  Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, N.C., 18. July, 2017.  Here’s the playlist.

Brain Damaged in Greensboro

Floydpodcast.com hits the road for this edition of Brain Damage and visits the “gate city” Greensboro, North Carolina!  It’s A Fleeting Glimpse Forum member conGREGation and this podcast is the pre & post show party soundtrack for Roger’s concert at the Greensboro Coliseum.  It’s only the “best of” Roger Waters for this podcast and has a really nice flow to it. Perfect for the background at a bar, hanging with friends or for your own private listening. Of all the Roger Waters mix’casts I’ve done, this is my favorite. Here’s the playlist!  Enjoy!

Us + Them

Lots of fun at Roger’s rehearsal last night at the Meadowlands.  You can find all about his Us+Them 2017 tour, beginning is Kansas City later this week on Friday 5/26 and ending in Vancouver on 10/28. Roger Waters Us + Them Tour.

Other shows I’ll be attending are:
– 7/18 Greensboro, N.C.
– 9/11 Brooklyn, N.Y.
– 9/27 & 9/28 Boston, MA

Twenty-four hours later, here I am posting this special episode for your enjoyment.  Here’s the playlist  Please be sure to comment below,

Desert Trip

dtWe start things off with a surprise and end it with two more.  Sandwiched in the middle is a gripping performance from Roger and his band during the second weekend of Desert Trip, October 16th in Indio California.  The recording is amazing and but slightly doctored up to bring out the best possible sound.  I hope you enjoy!  If you do, please consider a small donation to help keep the site running.

Redux

wallreduxsiteHappy Holidays!  This podcast is just another piece of random precision for you for this holiday season.

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!

Ravingandrooling

bd225The title, “Ravingandrooling” is typed that way on purpose. I explain in the podcast but in short, this episode is dedicated to my friend Jeff Post.  For this is a two-fer.  First, Roger Waters at Newport Folk Festival and second, something very special.  Enjoy!  Its a long podcast.

By the way, you can still enjoy the first half.but I warn listeners to stop if they don’ want to spoil the surprise with the second half.  I’ll post the playlist later on.  Again, I don’t want to spoil any surprises. In the meantime, you can find the playlist embedded within the file of the podcast.

Intermission

bd218It’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”.

M’chr II

1234832_550087831713199_735972290_nThree days back from the UK and a recording from Manchester has already popped up.  Perfect timing for this month’s podcast.  The recording needed some help and I was more than happy to lend a hand.

This show was (in my opinion) better than the massive and not as good sounding Wembley gig two days before.  This was the very last Wall show in the UK and third from the very last performance ever and the band sounds tight and spot on.

The Wall live from Phones4u Arena, Manchester, UK. 16. September 2013. No playlist… I’m fairly sure you already know it.  Enjoy.

Pros And Cons – Chicago

BD201It’s more like the Pros And Cons of Floydpodcasting.  After two months of editing, I have to admit, all the work was worth it.  Please forgive me if I do say so myself, this sounds fucking incredible.  Roger Water’s “The Pros & Cons of Hitchhiking – North American Tour”  featuring Eric Clapton.  From the Rosemont Horizon, Chicago, Illinois, twenty nine years ago today, 26, July, 1984.  Enjoy and please don’t forget to comment here or on facebook.   Oh and also please consider a small donation.  Even if its just one dollar, every bit helps afford licensing and hosting costs.  Thank you!
