ProgWatch

On this week’s Prog-Watch my esteemed guest is Daniele Giovannoni, drummer, keyboardist, and main musical composer of the band Karmamoi! Daniele and I chat about the history of the band and their new concept album The Day Is Done. And of course I play plenty of great Karmamoi music along the way!

On this week’s program my esteemed guest is Guy Manning of Manning, United Progressive Fraternity, and Damanek! Guy and I chat about his various projects and the upcoming Damanek tour with Southern Empire! And of course there is plenty of great music to be heard along the way!

Also: hear Tony clarify how Guy likes to pronounce “Damanek” and then revert to his own pronunciation for the rest of the program! I guess you really can’t teach an old prog rock show host new tricks.
