Yep, this week it’s another of my indeterminate, music-driven theme shows.

While the show’s title explains a lot… the image representing the show may confuse you.  But I assure you, it’s relevant to the story.

I’ve incorporated some new releases in with some classics for this show.  So keep your ears open for some great music you’ve not heard!

Take time to put on some headphones and immerse yourself in some quality, message-laden progressive rock.  Just remember… the message you decipher is your own.

Because the days are still long: Remember, you can steam/download this, and any of the 113 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.
