For this week’s program I’ve put together a variety show with a little tribute to the late Colin Tench. We’ll hear a new one from the Colin Tench Project, and two from a couple of his other projects, BunChakeze and Corvus Stone. I’ll also be spinning lots of great stuff from The Fierce & The Dead, Fractal Mirror, Bram Stoker, Jethro Tull, Steven Wilson, Downes-Braide Association, Rush, Spiral Key, and Somnambulist.

This week I’m shaking the family tree of a favorite band from my youth…The Alan Parsons Project! We’ll be listening to some classics from the band, exploring some offshoots and forerunners, and sampling the solo work of some of the core vocalists and musicians who made up the collective. We’ll hear from the Project proper, as well as Keats, Pilot, Dave Paton, Colin Blunstone, Lenny Zakatek, and Chris Rainbow, and we’ll check out some post-Project stuff from the two founders of the Project, Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson.

On this week’s show we have a very special edition of Progressive Discoveries, hosted by Dr. Rob Fisher himself! Rob will be talking about the new Lunatic Soul album “Fractured” and how it relates to us all as we struggle to get over losses in our lives. Personal, yet universal! Before and after this special feature, I’ve got a variety of great new stuff from Wobbler, Looking-Glass Lantern, Karfagen, ZEH, Gleb Kolyadin, and the Von Hertzen Brothers!

On this week’s show my special guests are the gentlemen from the German duo, Clouds Can! I have a feature on their new album Leave, and chat with Dominik Hüttermann and Thomas Thielen “t” about their new “progressive pop” approach. (And with the aid of much coffee, Thomas is in fine form!) Aside from the Clouds Can music, I’m also spinning a few other great tunes by The Wood Demons, Armed Cloud, Servants Of Science, and Michael Crimson!
