This week I’ve got great stuff from The Barock Project, The Blackheart Orchestra, Minutes To Midnight, Euphoria Station, The Bedlam Furnaces, and John Holden, plus another lost gem from Locanda delle Fate! If that wasn’t enough, I’ll be chatting a little with Malcolm Galloway and spinning some of his solo stuff and some music from his band, Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate!

A plethora of astounding progressive sounds awaits on this week’s Prog-Watch! We’ll hear music from John Holden, Magnum, Mariana Semkina, Jack O’ The Clock, Godsticks, The Million Reasons, Long Earth, and The Bardic Depths! Plus, our friend and resident reviewer will take us on a voyage of Progressive Discovery with the first solo outing from Ray Alder, vocalist and frontman for US band Fates Warning!

Progressive Tracks Show #256 (Always Eclectic), originally broadcast on Saturday, April 7, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Now I love classic progressive/art rock as much as anyone… but one of the things I love to do with The Progressive Tracks Show is to introduce listeners to music they haven’t heard before.

Sometimes that quest takes me into some interesting territory, and if I combine that with music you may have heard… well, can anyone say “eclectic”?
