That ‘other’ entity at which I present over in the United Kingdom is celebrating 5 years on the Internet.  So all the Progzilla Radio DJ’s have created shows featuring the songs that hooked them on progressive rock, as well as some favorites from the past 5 years.  Even though I broke the rules… just a bit, this is mine.

Why celebrate Progzilla Radio’s 5th Birthday on KPTZ?

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #308       (6th Anniversary Show)

– 6 years is a long time to do something.
– 6 years is a long time to do something that takes time. Every. Day.
– 6 years is a long time to struggle to build a faithful listener base.
– But… 6 years is an instant in time when you’re having fun. And I truly am!

15 April 2013 marked the first ever edition of Progressive Tracks (as it was first named). It was Tax Day… I had just finished my taxes… I was really nervous.

6 years later marks the 308th edition of The Progressive Tracks Show. It is Tax Day… I have filed for an extension… I’m still nervous; hopefully it doesn’t show.

I’ll be spinning some most excellent tunes. You’ll be sitting back and enjoying. Teamwork!     ;o)

Music discovery is a wondrous thing. Sometimes it takes form as brand new music and brand new bands… sometimes it’s rediscovering music you’ve previously ‘written off’.
