550: Variety + Mystery on Progressive Discoveries



The Progressive Tracks Show #231 (In A ProgTracks Mood), originally broadcast on Friday, October 13, 2017, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

After being challenged by a listener to ‘lighten up’, dump the gloom, and become more cheerful… I do my best, while playing some independent artists, new music, and another Golden Tracks album that is turning 50.

Listen in to see if I can actually do it!
