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.

Ahh… the things we think.  The weird ways our minds work.

Time for some tunes about the mind.  Whose mind?  Somebody’s mind.  Maybe it’s yours?  Maybe it’s mine?

The days are getting shorter, and darkness is the best environment to put on some headphones and immerse yourself in some quality, heady, progressive rock.

Remember, you can stream/download this, and any of the 117 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at:
