Realizing that we can’t always stick our heads in the sand… I was able to find a theme in the midst of everything I was planning to play this week!  So it’s time for a reality check.

I call it “The State of the World”.  Politics… espionage… climate change… country-first attitudes… gender relations… it’s all here.  Not many songs with lyrics, so you get to ‘feel it’.

Progressive Tracks Show #265 (Discoveries), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 9, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

The premise for this show is simple:  Sometimes it takes a bit of looking, but the progressive rock machine continues to churn… and you’ll need no additional proof of that other than to listen to the music in this show.   It’s been quite a while since we’ve done an edition of The Progressive Tracks Show about anything but the SeaProg Festival (not that anyone’s complaining, mind you), but it’s time to get back to music discoveries from the past couple of months.

Here’s the plan:  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.

The after-party:  Remember, you can access any previous edition of The Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.
