This week I’m celebrating the 5th Birthday of my flagship station, Progzilla Radio, with a special exploring five of the albums that got me into Progressive Rock in the first place! Take a little trip down memory lane with me and the Beatles, the Moody Blues, the Alan Parsons Project, Genesis, and Yes!
The podcast for Prog-Watch 506 is available at Progwatch.com
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.
If you missed last weekend’s 101 Dimensions, you can still listen HERE
“…And then there were three…”

2. The Alan Parsons Project – I Robot (from the album I Robot, 1977)
