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!

Tune in to hear great music from The Eloy, Porcupine Tree, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Pendragon, Agents Of Mercy, and Banco del Mutuo Soccorso!

This week on Prog-Watch it’s another of my themed specials, and the theme is family! Every song has to do with family and especially close family members (Mother, Father, Sister and Brother)! Music will be supplied by great classic and contemporary artists, including Jethro Tull, Genesis, Yes, Pendragon, Alan Parsons, Renaissance, Seven Steps To The Green Door, Queen, IO Earth, Traffic, The Nice, The Who, Dukes Of The Orient, and Peter Gabriel! Come along for a fun ride!

On this week’s program my special guest is none other than Nick Barrett…founder, composer, guitarist and vocalist for the classic UK band Pendragon! The band is celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, so Nick and I had plenty to talk about! With such a vast back catalog of great music from which to choose, I also had no problem selecting great tunes to spin along the way!
