Progressive Tracks Show #382 (The Anomalous Autumn)

It seems like Summer came and went without even a notice…as the historic events of 2020 rolled inexorably on.

Now we find ourselves at the Autumnal Equinox…traditionally a time of balance, protection, comfort, and letting go.  But what’s our future?  I’ll pose that it’s Precarious… and Uncertain.

I, for one, don’t have a crystal ball… but together, we can take this next hour or so to explore some of this Anomalous Autumn’s possibilities.

Progressive Tracks Show #264 (SeaProg Festival Wrap-Up #6), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 2, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

There are two kinds of people in this world:  Those who attended SeaProg 2018 this past weekend… and those who did not.  But both groups will find something to like about this show which features 14 SeaProg artists.

If you attended, you’ll be able to relive some of the fonder memories you’ve ever had while depriving yourself of sleep at a music event (the artists were truly that great, weren’t they?).

And if you missed SeaProg 2018, you still have an excellent opportunity to get a ‘crash course’ in all things SeaProg… y’know, to help you decide to reserve the first weekend in June 2019 for the next Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock.  Yes, there will be one; yes, you should attend!

With this installment, the SeaProg 2018 Progressive Tracks Show Series is complete.  Now if you’ll excuse me… I’m going to go get some sleep.     ;o)
