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.
