Progressive Tracks Special (“The Progzilla Birthday Massacre”), originally broadcast on Sunday, March 4, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.


This special one-hour show was created as part of the Progzilla Radio 3rd Birthday Bash.  I purposely used tracks that I’ve played on the show at some time or another, to give listeners a feel for what I play on a weekly basis.  But I mixed in some interesting, non-Prog, birthday-related tracks as well.  And wouldn’t you know… as it often does, a story line germinated (at least in MY head)!  So as you listen, feel free to create your own story from the music and lyrics.  I’ll not tell you mine, as you’d probably have me institutionalized.
