THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #320
(The Old Day IS The New Day)

Many of the issues we face today are not new… we just didn’t learn the lessons of the past.

Fortunately, music isn’t like that. New creations often use the past as building blocks… and the results are impressive (unless of course we didn’t learn anything, and disco makes a comeback). 😉

This week we’ll explore both new and old music, including a 50-year old classic album.

And remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are over 160 now!).

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)

Progressive Tracks Show #258 (SeaProg Festival Preview #1), originally broadcast on Saturday, April 21, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Oh boy, oh boy! It’s that time of year when the sweet strains of Avant Prog fill the streets of Seattle… or at least the streets in the Columbia City neighborhood.

And as is tradition (5 years is tradition, right?), The Progressive Tracks Show is uniquely poised to prepare you for the experience that is The Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock (SeaProg) 2018.

The plan is to feature a few SeaProg bands each week leading to the festival’s start on June 1st. And this year you’ll hear a bit from the artists themselves… mini ‘interviews’ if you will… that will give you a welcome break from all my talking.     ;o)

This week we’ll highlight some bands from this region that will impress! Are you up for that? If so… go grab your old SeaProg t-shirt from the closet and your favorite beverage from the fridge, sit back, and prepare to be prepared.

PLAYLIST:

  • Moraine – “Skein” from Groundswell on Moonjune Records
