Come sail away with Prog-Watch this week, where every song will have the root word “sail” in the title! Aside from Styx (who provide the theme song, of course) we will also be hearing from Ayreon, Mystery, Carmen, Golden Earring, Manning, Elton John, Jon & Vangelis, The Strawbs, Gryphon, Radio Head, Moon Safari, Robert Palmer, John Hackett & Nick Fletcher, and Mike Oldfield!

Our special guest this week on Prog-Watch is Keith Buckman of the UK band The Far Meadow! Keith and I talk TFM, as he and the band get ready for a great Evening Of Bad Elephant Music in London on 25 February! (Konchordat and The Rube Goldberg Machine are on the bill, as well!) Of course I also play a lot of great TFM music and even slip one in from the new Mike Oldfield album!
