This week’s Prog-Watch is an entire show dedicated to prog rock classic tracks! I’m spinning tunes by Genesis, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, King Crimson, Kansas, The Alan Parson Project, Yes, Jethro Tull, The Electric Light Orchestra, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, and Caravan! Our friend and resident reviewer, Dr. Rob Fisher, is also doing a Progressive Discoveries segment on a classic album… Breathless by Camel! Come along as Prog-Watch goes “old school”!
648: Classix, Vol. 1
PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #322 (Apollo 11 – Prog You To The Moon And Back)
This week’s edition of The Progressive Tracks Show is a creation; an experience best enjoyed in solitude. The (mostly) instrumental songs and historical audio clips were carefully pieced together to evoke emotion; to portray the Apollo 11 mission through the emotional power of music.
I do hope you can take time to sit back and enjoy it!

On this week’s show we are catching up with the Jonses! Or at least one of the Joneses…namely, our friend Peter Jones of Tiger Moth Tales! Peter had a helluva year in 2016, from guesting on albums by Red Bazar and The Colin Tench Project, to live Tiger Moth Tales gigs with a full band, and even touring Japan as part of the legendary Camel! I caught up with him late last year and we discussed all of this and more. Plus, I play a lot of great music in between the chat, so in the words of Yoda, “miss it not!”
