I’m doing another of my band family tree explorations on Prog-Watch this week and my subject is the mighty King Crimson! I’ll be spinning a few classic tunes from the band proper and exploring their roots and branches in the music of Giles, Giles & Fripp, McDonald & Giles, Peter Sinfield, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, David Cross & David Jackson, and more! Come and hear what I shake out of the KC Family Tree!

PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #323 (Get Out and LIVE a Little)

Listening to music at home or with friends is certainly a relaxing pastime. But nothing compares to seeing artists at their best in a live setting.

There are plenty of great artists on tour who are coming to Seattle (and nearby areas) that we’ll explore this week. Grab your personal calendar, tune in, and book your musical entertainment for the rest of 2019.

Go on… get out and LIVE a little!

And remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: (there are over 160 now!).

Progressive Tracks Show #252 (A Matter Of Priorities), originally broadcast on Saturday, March 10, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Warning… Opinions Ahead:  We in the United States must get our priorities in order, to solve a most critical and contentious problem.  An unexpected interest group has stepped up to try to force solutions… but progress has been slow so far, and they’ll need our help if they are to succeed.  And their success is paramount to our future.

Who?  What?  C’mon, Mike, what the heck are you talking about?

Nope.  You’re going to have to tune in this week to hear another theme show centered around this topic.  Just know that I don’t offer any solutions… I simply play Prog.     ;o)

NOTE:  This podcast is extended a bit from what I had time to play on the air… but I wanted you to hear it.  Enjoy the additional song (#2 in the playlist)!
