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
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
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.
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!
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!
There’s nothing cooler than having a raw, unedited version of an officially released concert. This gem of a soundboard recording surfaced not to long ago. I believe its recorded off a close FM radio frequency so people with hearing problems can hear a nice and clear feed from the board. I could be wrong. It was originally missing a little segment of “Sorrow” and “Money” due to tape flips but I patched those both up, remastered and doctored for supersound. Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Long Island, N.Y., 20 August 1988. A couple of other unrelated goodies are thrown in for good measure. Enjoy! Please donate and comment. Thank you. Here’s the playlist.
It’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!

Show #179, Release date: 04. December, 2011
It feels like its been a while since a full Floyd concert’cast. I’ve been meaning to feature this one for a long time but kept putting it off. It’s Pink Floyd’s first visit to Atlanta Georgia in ten years. Over a three day period, they filmed and recorded in what was supposed to be a precursor to ‘delicate’. Doctored up and whatnot… Enjoy and thanks for leaving comments! I love them. Don’t stop!
Show #150 Release date: 16. April, 2010
For this special edition of Brian Damage, accompanying us is RonToon of Harvested Records to discuss what Harvested does and to focus on their incredible sounding upgraded version of “BBC Archives 1967-1969”. The liner notes say “This release required a lot of work and took more than 6 months to complete. The purpose was to present each track in the best possible quality. The process was long because it was performed on a track by track basis. For each song, we had to compare many different sources in order to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each version and then decide which one(s) to work on. The mastering work was done very carefully, trying to repair every flaw that could be corrected… and there were a lot (tape warble, crackles, drop-outs, incorrect speed, etc).” Enjoy!
Note: The Harvested release contains more tracks than whats here. Mmwwahahahaaa!
Show #149 Release date: 24. March, 2010
The name of the podcast almost has nothing to do with the theme but it does describe the manner in which it progresses. A few weeks ago I realized that I’ve never featured the KQED sessions in full, not even on the radio back in 2004. Crazy I neglected this for so long and its long overdue. For the rest of the podcast, I wasn’t 100% sure what direction to take it. Well, the other day, Craig Williams, who’s responsible for the last podcast idea again suggested the following, “Years ago you did a podcast featuring a compilation of the Pink Floyd radio sessions, well how about doing one featuring their appearances on TV. As it focuses on the bands early years, it provides a nice contrast to recent podcasts” He also suggested KQED. What a coincidence and bingo. We were watching TV… watching TV. Please don’t mind me flipping the channels. Here’s the playlist.
