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!

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #316   (SeaProg 2019 Festival Wrap-Up Show)

By the time this podcast is posted, SeaProg 2019 will be another page in the history books… and I’ll be exhausted.  So this week I’m letting ALL the SeaProg 2019 artists do the show by themselves.

There is (almost) all different music on this show, so tune in or grab it, to hear new tunes!

I want to thank Dennis, Jon, John, Joe, Dave, and Tom (The Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock’s Central Committee) for supporting me in hosting seven… count ’em… seven SeaProg preview shows.  You guys are great!

I would also like to thank Nate, Jonathan, Julie, Trey, Markus, Brenden/Jennifer, Tim, Michael, Stefan/Per, Alex, Dani, Riley/Justin, and Bill for their time and effort in doing interviews, creating station ID’s, and generally putting up with me and my production deadlines.  I hope these fine artists think this was as worthwhile, as I do!

Lastly, I hope you listeners have enjoyed these shows; they continue to be the most downloaded/streamed ones I create.  And that makes feel very positive about the future of SeaProg!  Thanks for listening!

The Progressive Tracks Show #205 (What’s Wrong… What’s Right… And What Just Is), originally broadcast on Friday April 7, 2017, is now available to download or listen to any time you desire.

If you listened to last week’s show you’ll know that I was recently married, so I hope you’ll allow me a “week off”.  So this is actually a rebroadcast of a KPTZ show #148 from 13 months ago, (but never before broadcast on Progzilla Radio)… besides, the message is still very relevant today.

Oh, and I’ve added a great live epic to the end so you get the full 90 minutes you expect!
