Progressive Tracks Show #241 (ProgMas 2017), originally broadcast on Friday, December 22, 2017, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

PROGTRACKS NOTE:  I’ve uploaded this podcast to your stocking a bit early because… hey, it’s Christmas!  Besides, I figured you might need to sneak away from your Wham!-loving relatives, put on those new headphones that Santa brought you, and Prog On for a bit!       ;o)

ProgMas is a time-honored tradition at The Progressive Tracks Show (this being the 7th edition), and as always, you’ll experience a melding of traditional and… er, not-so-traditional tunes to mark the season in an alternative fashion.

This week on Prog-Watch we pay a little tribute to the late Walter Becker of Steely Dan, before embarking on a great variety program with music from Ghostly Beard, Soul Secret, Drifting Sun, Peter Gabriel, Robert Reed, Bangtower, Wetton Downes Icon, and Gandalf’s Fist. Near the end of the program, two of the boys from The Aaron Clift Experiment drop in to chat about their recent concert activities and their crowd funding campaign for their projected third studio album, “If All Goes Wrong”. We finish with another by Walter Becker, this time from his solo career.
