PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #325 (Music Deserving Full Attention)

ProgHeads are ‘different’ from others who listen to music (or at least we like to think we are). We don’t typically use music as background noise, while life goes on around it. We are perhaps a bit more critical in our listening. And we certainly tend to make music a priority in our lives. In some ways, you could say that music IS life to ProgHeads.

And so, we give music the attention it deserves. The music this week falls nicely into that category of deserving our full attention.

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 #323 (Get Out and LIVE a Little)

Listening to music at home or with friends is certainly a relaxing pastime. But nothing compares to seeing artists at their best in a live setting.

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: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.
