I’ll be spinning music from The Tangent, Man-Akin, I Am The Manic Whale, Morse, Portnoy and George, Starmen, Failover, Joost Maglev, Tiger Moth Tales, and Three Colours Dark! Plus, Rob will be taking us on a voyage of Progressive Discovery with the fabulous new album, Once Around the Sun, by the Scottish band Long Earth!

I’m doing another of my band family tree explorations on Prog-Watch this week and my subject is the mighty King Crimson! I’ll be spinning a few classic tunes from the band proper and exploring their roots and branches in the music of Giles, Giles & Fripp, McDonald & Giles, Peter Sinfield, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, David Cross & David Jackson, and more! Come and hear what I shake out of the KC Family Tree!

This week on Prog-Watch my special guest is Nick D’Virgilio, who is perhaps best known as a drummer and vocalist for Spock’s Beard and Big Big Train! Nick and I chat about his illustrious career, and along the way I’ll be spinning lots of great music from Spock’s Beard and various side projects in which Nick has participated (including Rewiring Genesis, Deckchair Poets, and Zorbonauts)! We will also hear a number of tunes from his solo career, including a couple from his wonderful new album ‘Invisible’!

Come sail away with Prog-Watch this week, where every song will have the root word “sail” in the title! Aside from Styx (who provide the theme song, of course) we will also be hearing from Ayreon, Mystery, Carmen, Golden Earring, Manning, Elton John, Jon & Vangelis, The Strawbs, Gryphon, Radio Head, Moon Safari, Robert Palmer, John Hackett & Nick Fletcher, and Mike Oldfield! You’ll almost be able to smell the salt water, and feel the wind on your face and the rocking of the waves! Well…almost…

This week’s Prog-Watch is a Variety program with a Guest DJ Feature! I’ll be spinning tracks from Robyn Ferguson, Tarmak, Ubi Maior, Airbag, Silas and Saski, Nick D’Virgilio, Steve Thorne, and Haken! Our Guest DJ, Mr. Tony Zappa (no relation to Frank, he informs me) has chosen songs from Yes, Spock’s Beard, King Crimson, and Jon And Vangelis, and I’ll be mixing those in and reading Tony’s commentary!
