This week’s Prog-Watch features a lot of great, modern Prog Rock from Jan Akkerman, Karfagen, Low Roar, Rodney Matthews and Jeff Scheetz with Oliver Wakeman, Nick Magnus, and Frequent Flyers, and a “proggy”classic from Elton John! Plus, The Doctor, Rob Fisher, will be examining the debut album by the UK group Chasing the Monsoon!

(Enter… The Artist)

Being a source of inspiration for others isn’t easy.  Those with the innate talent for seeing the world in a different way are, themselves, different.  And that doesn’t always fit in so well with what the rest of ‘the sleepers’ consider as the norm.

This week we’ll explore the necessary, but uncommon role of The Artist, with another think-for-yourself theme show.  NOTE:  This show is dedicated to an artist (and DJ) at KPTZ whose inspiration was lost to us recently.
