Jim Guittard’s Place

Podcast of Islas de Robinson

Posted in Music, Psychedelic by guittard on October 30, 2008

Recently, I was turned on to a podcast coming out of Madrid, Spain.  What great thing I found.  Well, actually, the podcaster found me on myspace and I checked what he has going.  He has a lot going and real good music.

I recommend this podcast with both thumbs up and if I had anymore thumbs those, too.  The show is in the Psychedelic, Cosmic Country, and Folk-Rock genres.  You’ll dig it if you are into that stuff!

Here’s a list of artists that have been played on the show:

  • The Quarter After
  • The Byrds
  • The Grateful Dead
  • Love
  • STALK FORREST GROUP
  • Bob Dylan
  • David Bowie
  • Sarabeth Tucek
  • Vietnam
  • The Sidewinders
  • Violent Femmes
  • The Yardbirds
  • Radio Moscow

And a lot of bands that I haven’t heard of but are very good.  His podcast will open your ears to some good new stuff. 

In the latest episodes, my song “Breaking the Language Barrier” is included.
