This week on Prog-Watch I’m taking a look at the rich and diverse Musical World of Phil Collins! We’ll hear music from Genesis, Brand X, and his solo career, and some of the noteworthy and interesting guest appearances Phil made on records by other artists including some of his Genesis bandmates, Frida, Robert Plant, Howard Jones, and more! Great drumming and singing will abound!

This week’s Prog-Watch is a bit of a multi-national affair, with great music from seven different countries! We’ll hear from Fren, Psychoyogi, Pattern-Seeking Animals, Slap Guru, Fughu, Fireballet, Caravaggio, The Dani Lopez Quartet, Magenta, Vesper Vals, and The Enid! I hope you will join me!

This week’s Prog-Watch is another edition of EPIX! Just six tunes will carry us through our time together and I’ll play one from each decade of our favorite genre (with a bonus from the 1970s)! Tune in to hear great music from The Eloy, Porcupine Tree, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Pendragon, Agents Of Mercy, and Banco del Mutuo Soccorso!

This week on Prog-Watch it’s another variety program full of mostly new material and some of it will be a little heavier or harder-edged than what you usually hear on the program. I’ve got music from Ajna, Pure Reason Revolution, Amy Birks, Starset, Haken, Band Of Rain, Roz Vitalis, Delain, The Bardic Depths, Subsignal, and Magenta! So are you ready to rock…progressively, of course?

This week on Prog-Watch my special guest is Nick Magnus! Nick is perhaps best known as a long-time collaborator and bandmate of Steve Hackett, but has an interesting history and six solo albums to his name! Nick and I chat about everything from his early days with the Enid and Autumn, through the “Hackett Years”, and up to the present, with the release of his latest solo album Catharsis! Along the way I will of course be spinning lots of great Magnus music!

This week I’ve got great stuff from The Barock Project, The Blackheart Orchestra, Minutes To Midnight, Euphoria Station, The Bedlam Furnaces, and John Holden, plus another lost gem from Locanda delle Fate! If that wasn’t enough, I’ll be chatting a little with Malcolm Galloway and spinning some of his solo stuff and some music from his band, Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate!
