I’m pretty sure that no one was unhappy to see 2020 in the rear view, but it was a pretty fine year for music! So this week on Prog-Watch I am once more featuring some of the best of 2020, with a line-up that includes The Flower Kings, Blue Oyster Cult, The Tangent, Lonely Robot, Pendragon, Neal Morse, Nick D’Virgilio, Pattern-Seeking Animals, and Fish!
804: More of the Best of 2020
This week on Prog-Watch my special guest is Nick D’Virgilio, who is perhaps best known as a drummer
and vocalist for Spock’s Beard
and Big Big Train! Nick
and I chat about his illustrious career,
and along the way I’ll be spinning lots of great music from Spock’s Beard
and various side projects in which Nick has participated (including Rewiring Genesis, Deckchair Poets,
and Zorbonauts)! We will also hear a number of tunes from his solo career, including a couple from his wonderful new album ‘Invisible’!
727: In Conversation with Nick D’Virgilio
On this week’s Prog-Watch: brand new music from Kansas, Nick D’Virgilio, Turdetans, Blood Brothers, Hollow Water, and Frost*, plus great stuff from Farehaven, Michele Conta, and Man Till God! In addition, Dr. Rob Fisher returns for an in depth look at City Burials, the brand new album by Katatonia, on Progressive Discoveries!
725: Variety + Katatonia on Progressive Discoveries
This week’s Prog-Watch is a Variety program with a Guest DJ Feature! I’ll be spinning tracks from Robyn Ferguson, Tarmak, Ubi Maior, Airbag, Silas and Saski, Nick D’Virgilio, Steve Thorne, and Haken! Our Guest DJ, Mr. Tony Zappa (no relation to Frank, he informs me) has chosen songs from Yes, Spock’s Beard, King Crimson, and Jon And Vangelis, and I’ll be mixing those in and reading Tony’s commentary!
