This week on Prog-Watch I’m finishing up my coverage of Dave Oberle’ and his most unique progressive folk band, Gryphon! Hear the remainder of our chat and lots of great music from the band, from both the classic period and the modern era!

(…And The Shows Fell, One By One)

300 Progressive Tracks shows don’t seem a lot, against the multitudes of invading music shows. But, if you’re a student of history, you know that quantity has little to do with strength.

Despite overwhelming odds, ProgTracks has led his listeners over the past 6 years, into battle against all that is mediocre (or even remotely hipster) in sound. Refusing to lay down his headphones for anyone, he has created a show as bombastic and entertaining as any in the prog realm (or any comparatively cheesy big-budget movie).


Won’t you join The Progressive Tracks Show ranks, to help secure the next 300? Ready your headphones and listen intently… for tonight we Prog!  Madness?  No… this is The Progressive Tracks Show!!

ProgHeads!!  Prepare For Glory!!
