This week on Prog-Watch I have a bit of a mixed bag! We’ll hear great stuff from the likes of Surreal, Bjørn Riis, In Continuum, and Nad Sylvan, plus Dr. Rob Fisher will be taking a look at the latest Damanek album on Progressive Discoveries! As if that was not enough, I’ll have a mini feature on Nikki Squire and her band Esquire! Nikki has a new track and she and I chatted about that and the future of Esquire!

This week our special guest was none other than Nikki Squire of the band Esquire! In her first interview in a number of years, the former Mrs. Chris Squire spoke candidly about what she learned about music from Chris, the early years of her own band, Esquire, and her writing partnership with Nigel McLaren, through to the loss of her former husband and Nigel both in a short period of time last year. Along the way we heard music from the first two Esquire albums, and their brand new release No Spare Planet, which is a return to form and fitting tribute to the late Nigel McLaren.
