606: Variety + Pymlico on Progressive Discoveries


(Considering The Future)

Things change in an instant…..
Life goes on as it usually does, until the unexpected occurs… and your life is forever changed.

Well, that’s us… but what about countries, and society as a whole? Change there is slower… or so it seems. But despite the perceived stagnation… change does happen.

This week we’ll listen to tunes about social change as a window to the future.

Yes, (good or bad) it’s another one of those ‘themed’ shows…   ;o)

101 Dimensions – August 2018-1




Jerry Marotta is one of the most prolific drummers in the history of modern music. He has played on literally hundreds of records and has worked with acts such as Orleans, Hall & Oates, The Indigo Girls, Stackridge, Marshall Crenshaw, The Dream Academy, Tears For Fears, Elvis Costello, Paul McCartney, and many, many more. Of particular note to Progressive Rock music fans is his association with Peter Gabriel, Tony Levin, and Trey Gunn of King Crimson, who now works with Jerry in the Security Project. Jerry is my esteemed guest on this week’s Prog-Watch, and he talks at length about working with the Prog icons just mentioned, and what he is up to now. Along the way we will hear lots of great music from the progressive end of his resume.
