THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #298 
(Considering The Future)

Things change in an instant…..
Life goes on as it usually does, until the unexpected occurs… and your life is forever changed.

Well, that’s us… but what about countries, and society as a whole? Change there is slower… or so it seems. But despite the perceived stagnation… change does happen.

This week we’ll listen to tunes about social change as a window to the future.

Yes, (good or bad) it’s another one of those ‘themed’ shows…   ;o)

Progressive Tracks Show #270 (Adding Prog To Your World), originally broadcast on Saturday, July 14, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Music discovery… it’s what The Progressive Tracks Show is all about.  And isn’t that why we started listening to progressive rock in the first place?  This week we’ll explore some artists and tracks never before played on the show.

Take time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock.  It may well be the best part of your day.

Progressive Tracks Show #264 (SeaProg Festival Wrap-Up #6), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 2, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

There are two kinds of people in this world:  Those who attended SeaProg 2018 this past weekend… and those who did not.  But both groups will find something to like about this show which features 14 SeaProg artists.

If you attended, you’ll be able to relive some of the fonder memories you’ve ever had while depriving yourself of sleep at a music event (the artists were truly that great, weren’t they?).

And if you missed SeaProg 2018, you still have an excellent opportunity to get a ‘crash course’ in all things SeaProg… y’know, to help you decide to reserve the first weekend in June 2019 for the next Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock.  Yes, there will be one; yes, you should attend!

With this installment, the SeaProg 2018 Progressive Tracks Show Series is complete.  Now if you’ll excuse me… I’m going to go get some sleep.     ;o)
