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.
