Deja Vu

Show #105 Release date: 22. February, 2008

On the 23rd of May 1968, Pink Floyd performed three shows in one evening.  One gig was just outside Amsterdam but the other two were at Paradiso.

The venue was once an old church and has high ceilings and a balcony overlooking the stage area.  Imagine how cool it must have been watching Floyd perform A Saucerful of Secrets with three large illuminated stained glass windows above the stage.

These two gigs took place within the first six months of Paradiso’s opening as a publicly-subsidized youth entertainment center.  It was also one of the first locations in which the use and sale of soft drugs was tolerated, so space out and enjoy.

  1. Hi there. I am a huge of Pink Floyd, particularly their material before Dark Side of the Moon and I just found your podcast so I’m looking forward to listening to more episodes. I see that you’ve done a few shows on cover versions and I’ve got an album out that I think you’ll be interested in. I’d like to send you a promotional copy so would you be able to email me so I can get you the download? For obvious reasons, I don’t wish to put such links or codes on a public forum. Thank you for your podcast and for getting back to me when you have a chance.
