THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #316   (SeaProg 2019 Festival Wrap-Up Show)

By the time this podcast is posted, SeaProg 2019 will be another page in the history books… and I’ll be exhausted.  So this week I’m letting ALL the SeaProg 2019 artists do the show by themselves.

There is (almost) all different music on this show, so tune in or grab it, to hear new tunes!

I want to thank Dennis, Jon, John, Joe, Dave, and Tom (The Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock’s Central Committee) for supporting me in hosting seven… count ’em… seven SeaProg preview shows.  You guys are great!

I would also like to thank Nate, Jonathan, Julie, Trey, Markus, Brenden/Jennifer, Tim, Michael, Stefan/Per, Alex, Dani, Riley/Justin, and Bill for their time and effort in doing interviews, creating station ID’s, and generally putting up with me and my production deadlines.  I hope these fine artists think this was as worthwhile, as I do!

Lastly, I hope you listeners have enjoyed these shows; they continue to be the most downloaded/streamed ones I create.  And that makes feel very positive about the future of SeaProg!  Thanks for listening!

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.

Here’s the plan:  Take some 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.

The after-party:  Remember, you can access any previous edition of The Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.
