726: ALL NEW Variety
Prog-Watch 508 is now available at Progwatch.com
My special guest for this episode is Michael Whiteman, bassist, singer, and composer from I Am The Manic Whale! Michael and I chat about all sorts of things, from the origins of the band to the future of “progressive rock”. Along the way I will, of course, spin lots of great music from Michael and the rest of his pod-mates in I Am The Manic Whale!
508: In Conversation with Michael Whiteman of I Am The Manic Whale
This week’s Prog-Watch is our semi-annual collaboration with some of the merry reviewers at The Progressive Aspect, bringing you some of the best Prog Rock releases this year! We’ll hear short reviews and sample music from ten of the best albums of 2017, as suggested by Mel Allen, Tony Colvill, Shawn Dudley, Rob Fisher, Jez Rowden, Roger Trenwith, and Leo Trimming. I’ll also pick a favorite of my own, and run down the whole list of albums which were nominated, but not represented on the show. (We do only have 90 minutes, and more than 30 albums were suggested!) So join me this week for a year-end round-up of some of the best new music released this year in our favorite genre!
