Progressive Tracks Show #270 (Adding Prog To Your World), originally broadcast on Saturday, July 14, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Music discovery… it’s what The Progressive Tracks Show is all about.  And isn’t that why we started listening to progressive rock in the first place?  This week we’ll explore some artists and tracks never before played on the show.

Take time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock.  It may well be the best part of your day.

Remember, you can access any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are well over 100 now!).

Great things happen when the right musicians get together at the right time and place.  And whether this happens live in concert, or live in the studio… there’s magic in this music that is ‘made in the moment’.  This week we’ll explore some outstanding music, documented as it happened.

Progressive Tracks Show #265 (Discoveries), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 9, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

The premise for this show is simple:  Sometimes it takes a bit of looking, but the progressive rock machine continues to churn… and you’ll need no additional proof of that other than to listen to the music in this show.   It’s been quite a while since we’ve done an edition of The Progressive Tracks Show about anything but the SeaProg Festival (not that anyone’s complaining, mind you), but it’s time to get back to music discoveries from the past couple of months.

Progressive Tracks Show #264 (SeaProg Festival Wrap-Up #6), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 2, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

There are two kinds of people in this world:  Those who attended SeaProg 2018 this past weekend… and those who did not.  But both groups will find something to like about this show which features 14 SeaProg artists.

If you attended, you’ll be able to relive some of the fonder memories you’ve ever had while depriving yourself of sleep at a music event (the artists were truly that great, weren’t they?).

And if you missed SeaProg 2018, you still have an excellent opportunity to get a ‘crash course’ in all things SeaProg… y’know, to help you decide to reserve the first weekend in June 2019 for the next Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock.  Yes, there will be one; yes, you should attend!

With this installment, the SeaProg 2018 Progressive Tracks Show Series is complete.  Now if you’ll excuse me… I’m going to go get some sleep.     ;o)
