The Power of Three, suggests that things that come in threes are funnier, more satisfying, more effective, and/or more memorable, than other numbers of things. There are many celtic, nordic, and pagan examples of this belief.

But does that translate to music? Join us to hear how the power of three translates… progressively.

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: (there are well over 100 now!).
