It occurred to me that I’ve never done a theme like this. The title should give it away but its still fun to find the connection burred in each song. This episode is on the shorter side but I hope you’ll still find it as riveting as all the others. It’s podcasts like this I hate posting playlists because it spoils the fun, but here it is. Anyway, don’t be shy, please leave a comment and tell your Pink Floyd friends about floydpodcast.com.
Here’s a podcast I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Floyd songs and solo efforts that feature the saxophone! I explain why I decided to do this now in the podcast. So if you’re a fan of the sax, then this is for you! Enjoy and if you do, please don’t forget to donate. Thank you! Here’s the playlist.
This podcast is a “review” of The Early Years box set. The set is awesome but… In this podcast, I go over what could of been better, a lucky mistake and perhaps some blatant omissions. I offer some better sounding examples of tracks and well, fixate on the whole thing. Here’s the playlist
Continuing on from the last podcast, this episode is part 2 of 2. A small sampling of material featured in the upcoming Early Years box set from 1970 to 1972 (well, actually 1974). Here’s the playlist . Enjoy! Please leave your thoughts and comments.
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 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!

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.
noun: the condition or quality of being like Pink Floyd.
Its been a good year for Floyd fans sans Pink Floyd with both Roger and David giving us some new material. It got me thinking, how much solo material could be good enough, to be Pink Floyd material. David, Rick, Roger and Nick had their own style of course but they are were all cut from the same cloth. That Pink Floyd thread, if you will. Here’s the playlist. Enjoy and please share your thoughts! Please donate, and Thank you!
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
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.
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.
