The Progressive Tracks Show #224 (Total Solar Eclipse), originally broadcast on Friday, August 18, 2017, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.
It’s been a long time since a total solar eclipse has happened in the United States. To put it in perspective, U.K. (Jobson/Wetton/Bozzio) were just about to release its “Danger Money” album when the last eclipse occurred on February 26th, 1979. Now THAT’s a looong time ago!
And believe me when I say, there’s plenty of great Prog on the subject of eclipses. So it’s no wonder I felt compelled to do a special 2-hour show (yes, you read that right) marking the total solar eclipse that occurred on Monday, August 21, 2017.
