Things are a little ‘off’ this week: I’ll be playing lots of new music this week, but there will be no theme.

No theme!

Anyway, I’m pretty sure there’s no theme.

But you might be able to conjure up a theme… if you try hard enough.

Theme or not… be sure to take some 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.

Because the days are still long: Remember, you can steam/download this, and any of the 113 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at:

The Progressive Tracks Show #206 (Four-Year Retrospective, originally broadcast on Friday April 14, 2017, is now available to download or listen to any time you desire.

Four years is a long time… especially if you didn’t know how many weeks you’d last as a Prog DJ.  ;o)

But it truly has been fun, and the time has flown by.   So to celebrate the past 4 years, and bring in the start of Year 5, I thought I’d choose tunes that I’ve played along the way… some of the over 1,000 different artists you’ve heard. This isn’t a “best of show”, because it’s all good, but songs that will give you a decent representation of what I’ve been spinning for you since 2013.
