If you missed this week’s Prog-Watch you can still listen HERE

The focus of this week’s program is a man who is perhaps one of the most prolific artists in the history of Progressive Rock, Roine Stolt! From his beginnings in Kaipa, through The Flower Kings, Tangent, Agents Of Mercy, Transatlantic, and his recent collaboration with Jon Anderson of Yes, this man has made a lot of great music in a career spanning more than 40 years! I was lucky enough to speak with Roine via Skype, and I’d like to share that conversation with all of my friends out there in Progland! So tune into this week’s Prog-Watch to hear some of that conversation and a lot of great Roine Stolt music from some of his various projects! Our friend Rob Fisher will also join in the festivities, with an edition of Progressive Discoveries that takes a look at Roine’s recent reunion with some of his original Kaipa bandmates in a project called Kaipa Da Capo!

On this week’s show we are catching up with the Jonses! Or at least one of the Joneses…namely, our friend Peter Jones of Tiger Moth Tales! Peter had a helluva year in 2016, from guesting on albums by Red Bazar and The Colin Tench Project, to live Tiger Moth Tales gigs with a full band, and even touring Japan as part of the legendary Camel! I caught up with him late last year and we discussed all of this and more. Plus, I play a lot of great music in between the chat, so in the words of Yoda, “miss it not!”

PW 402 - A Tribute To Greg Lake

If you missed this week’s Prog-Watch, you can still listen HERE

This week’s show was a tribute to Greg Lake. Greg was kind of a personal hero to me; and as a guy with a Prog Rock show, I couldn’t let his passing go without doing a tribute show. I’ve put together a nice career retrospective here, with some things you might not expect to hear and a few you may never have heard. So join me this week as I take a look back at a little of the impressive body of work left by Greg Lake. Requiescat in pace, Greg.
