Progressive Tracks

The Progressive Tracks Show #206 (Four-Year Retrospective, originally broadcast on Friday April 14, 2017, is now available to download or listen to any time you desire.

Four years is a long time… especially if you didn’t know how many weeks you’d last as a Prog DJ.  ;o)

But it truly has been fun, and the time has flown by.   So to celebrate the past 4 years, and bring in the start of Year 5, I thought I’d choose tunes that I’ve played along the way… some of the over 1,000 different artists you’ve heard. This isn’t a “best of show”, because it’s all good, but songs that will give you a decent representation of what I’ve been spinning for you since 2013.

  • Chrome Hoof – “Enter the Drobe” from Chrome Black Gold on Cuneiform Records
  • Spoke of Shadows – “Dichotomy” from Spoke of Shadows on Firepool Records

If you listened to last week’s show you’ll know that I was recently married, so I hope you’ll allow me a “week off”.  So this is actually a rebroadcast of a KPTZ show #148 from 13 months ago, (but never before broadcast on Progzilla Radio)… besides, the message is still very relevant today.

Oh, and I’ve added a great live epic to the end so you get the full 90 minutes you expect!
