Progressive Tracks

Ahh… the things we think.  The weird ways our minds work.

Time for some tunes about the mind.  Whose mind?  Somebody’s mind.  Maybe it’s yours?  Maybe it’s mine?

The days are getting shorter, and darkness is the best environment to put on some headphones and immerse yourself in some quality, heady, progressive rock.

Remember, you can stream/download this, and any of the 117 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.

When you discover something good, it’s difficult not to share it.  And you know me… I do enjoy sharing.

While not everything I’ll feature this week is brand new, I’ll bet most of it you’ll not have heard before.

So… be sure to take some time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock. It may well be the most illuminating part of your day.

The Progressive Tracks Show is teaming up with another local Seattle festival to bring you some excellent music from artists with which you may not familiar… yet.

Oh, but you will be!

The 2018 Psychedelic Autumn Equinox Festival is bringing together six exciting, forward-thinking bands for multiple experiential evenings.

I’ll resist the urge to ask “are you experienced?”… but you know what I mean.

The days are getting shorter, and darkness is the best environment to put on some headphones and immerse yourself in some quality, heady, progressive rock.

Things are a little ‘off’ this week: I’ll be playing lots of new music this week, but there will be no theme.

No theme!

Anyway, I’m pretty sure there’s no theme.

But you might be able to conjure up a theme… if you try hard enough.

Theme or not… be sure to take some time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock. It may well be the best part of your day.

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.

Progressive Tracks Show #272 (Theme?  Who Said Anything About A Theme?), originally broadcast on Saturday, July 28, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

In most weeks, The Progressive Tracks Show plays music around a specific theme.  That may also be the case this week… I’m just not going to admit to it.  ;o)

Oh well, at least the music is always excellent.

So take time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock.  It may well be the best part of your day.
