On this week’s program my esteemed guest is Guy Manning of Manning, United Progressive Fraternity, and Damanek! Guy and I chat about his various projects and the upcoming Damanek tour with Southern Empire! And of course there is plenty of great music to be heard along the way!

Also: hear Tony clarify how Guy likes to pronounce “Damanek” and then revert to his own pronunciation for the rest of the program! I guess you really can’t teach an old prog rock show host new tricks.

On this week’s Prog-Watch my special guest is Doug Rausch​ of the US band Rausch! Doug and I chat about his classical training, his influences, the Jordan Rudess connection, and much more! Along the way there will, of course, be plenty of great Rausch music! If you like your prog rock fresh and catchy, with brilliant keyboard playing and a dash of Queen thrown in, you will not want to miss this one!

On this week’s Prog-Watch my very special guest is the one and only Martin Barre of Jethro Tull fame! Martin and I talk Tull and his solo career, and along the way there is plenty of great music…a few Tull tunes on which Martin really shines, and lots of great music from his solo albums, including a few from his fabulous new album “Roads Less Travelled”!

On this week’s Prog-Watch I’m finishing up my coverage of the prolific keyboard maestro, Mr. Clive Nolan! There will be chat about his more recent endeavors, and plenty of great music from his collaboration with Oliver Wakeman, his theater-oriented project Caamora, and, of course, Arena! (In fact, there will be quite a bit of Arena, including a generous helping from the new album Double Vision!)
