The Progressive Tracks Show #234 (Life Ch-ch-ch-Changes), originally broadcast on Friday, November 3, 2017, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

I was running out of time to think of an appropriate theme for this week’s show, when I discovered an old file labeled “Spare Tracks”.  When I looked closely, I found this jumble of music fit like pieces of a puzzle to describe some of the important changes in my life.  Talk about weird!   But it resulted in a show that I think you’ll enjoy.
