This week on Prog-Watch I’m spinning some great new(er) stuff from O.R.k., VAK, Mostly Autumn, Ed Wynne, Tim Bowness, and Weezer (yes, Weezer)! I’ll also be mixing in some great older selections from a Guest DJ by the name of Reno Faoro! Reno’s picks include stuff by Carmen, Minimum Vital, Duncan Browne, Bloodrock, and Golden Earring! If you haven’t heard of some of these artists, I strongly suggest you come along for the ride and expand your “Prog-cabulary”! All are interesting and worth hearing!
