Brain Damaged listener Diego of Argentina asked if I’d make a podcast focusing on Pink Floyd’s singles. Well, funny he should ask. Before Brain Damage – The definitive Pink Floyd radio show was a podcast, it was on terrestrial radio in the Boston area out of Tufts University’s WMFO. I managed to get 38 shows over the air but never recorded them for posterity. So, over the years, I’ve recreated some of those missing episodes. Singles was one of those shows. Enjoy! Here’s the playlist!
I spent most of all my Christmas Eve (fifteen hours, start to end) wrapping this one up for you. This podcast includes as much OFFICIAL alternate versions of songs as I could squeeze in an almost a 2.5 hour podcast! It’s a fun listen! Check out the playlist after, so you don’t spoil the ride. Enjoy and thank you!
Check out this freaky coincidence… the link provided has a recording of radioactive emissions coming from Saturn captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. So basically you can hear what Saturn sounds like… and it sounds like a clip from an early Floyd performance!
“Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania… Neptune, Titan, stars can frighten.”
This is one of the many hand painted banners that hung from the rafters of Earls Court during Pink Floyd’s Division Bell shows back in 1994. The purpose of the banners was to improve the sound and dampen the echoing effect of the acoustics of Earls Court.
They measure 20’x18′ and you can see this banner and others in P.U.L.S.E. and Storm Thorgerson’s hardcover book, Mind Over Matter – Images of Pink Floyd on page 194.
