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.
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.

The idea of this edition of Brain Damage comes to us from Brett in Tampa Florida. The concept is Floyd songs that rock. He came up with a pretty good selection of songs that rock, in his opinion (and mine), in no specific order. Here’s Brett’s playlist. Enjoy!

I did it. Somehow I managed to find what very little spare time I had to work on this month’s edition of Brain Damage. I’m relieved because I didn’t want to skip a month. There’s no theme for this one but its got a nice collection of recordings with a few I’ve never featured before. Its mostly early material book ended with more contemporary solo material. I hope you enjoy it. Here’s the playlist. Please comment and if you can, donate. Thank you!
