Progressive Tracks Show #271 (Summer!), originally broadcast on Saturday, July 21, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Yep, the sun and warm weather’s finally hit… and after sprucing things up a bit here, I’m feelin’ pretty good about the ol’ ProgTracks settlement.  It’s Summer… and the livin’ is easy, eh?

This week we’ll celebrate with some nostalgic tuneage appropriate to the Summer season.  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.   BYOB!

Remember, you can access any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are well over 100 now!).

Progressive Tracks Show #242 (Best of Prog – 2017), originally broadcast on Friday, December 29, 2017, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

2017 was another fantastic year for Prog.  Any arguments?   I didn’t think so.

I haven’t actually done a full-blown ‘best-of’ show in years, but instead I’ve given out awards in self-created categories so as not to contradict other DJ’s.  This year is different; I’ll play tracks from my personally-selected Top 10 albums (playing different tracks from any I played on previous shows), including the one I consider the Best Prog Album of 2017.

PLAYLIST (NOT in numerical order):

  • Vespero – “Hapi” from Shum-Shir on Tonzonen Records
  • Charlie Cawood – “Garden of the Mind” from The Divine Abstract on Bad Elephant Music
  • Nova Collective – “The Further Side” from The Further Side on Metal Blade Records
  • Trojan Horse – “Sickle Cell Orphan” from Fukushima Surfer Boys on Bad Elephant Music
  • Bubblemath – “Perpetual Notion” from Edit Peptide on Cuneiform Records
  • Gentle Knife – “Fade Away” from Clock Unwound – Gentle Knife II on Bajkal Records
  • Kotebel – “Paradise Lost” from Cosmology on Musea
  • Amplifier – “Horse” from Trippin’ With Dr. Faustus on BEM
  • Diablo Swing Orchestra – “Superhero Jugganath” from Pacifisticuffs on Candlelight Records
  • Universal Totem Orchestra – “Terra Cava” from Mathematical Mother on Black Widow Records

An abundance of talent doesn’t always equate to wide recognition; the artists on this show are great examples of ‘talent flying under the radar’.   And while I can’t guarantee that all will be new to you, I can guarantee that you’ll find some new music to love.  So take a listen… and more importantly, support them!
