Echoes Podcast: Brian Eno & 30 Icons of Echoes

30 Icons of Echoes and Brian Eno, #1 Icon

Ruminations on 30 Icons of Echoes and Brian Eno, #1 Icon, Profiled in Echoes Podcast.

For our last celebration of Echoes’ first 30 years, we’ve selected the 30 Icons of Echoes. These are the artists who have informed the show over our first 30 years. We started with the 25 Icons from our 25th Anniversary and, with listener votes, we’ve added five more and made some adjustments. New additions to the list include Olafur Arnalds, Agnes Obel, Mike Oldfield, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre.  John Diliberto gives his thoughts on the list in the Echoes Podcast.

Brian Eno is number one of our 30 Icons of Echoes.  He has  influenced our sonic landscape for nearly a half-century. We’ll hear an interview profile on Eno. See John Diliberto’s list of 10 Essential Brian Eno Albums.
