THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #290 
(The State of New Music – 2018)

What is the state of the world as we reach the end of 2018?

Let’s just say it’s ‘fuzzy’.

But (attempting to remain in my ‘box’), I can definitely say that 2018 has been a ‘very very good’ year for Progressive Rock.  So much so, that there’s still a lot out there that we’ve just not been able to air.

So this week is an attempt to ‘catch up’ on some of the amazing music that has been released this year.

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #289 
(Playin’ What I Want To)

There comes a time when a DJ plays music on his show, simply because he wants to. Being the master of the realm, the DJ plays and the listeners… uh, listen.

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #288

The Progressive Rock community is a pretty tight-knit one. DJ’s, artists, and labels form mutually-beneficial relationships over time… and The Progressive Tracks Show is no different.

This week (being Thanksgiving in the U.S.) I’m playing just a fraction of the people I’ve come to appreciate and respect.

Oh… and you’ll understand why when you hear their music!

You can interpret this title (and image) any way you want.

2018 has been a prolific year for progressive rock, as well as some other not-so-positive things.  The way you see things in general, may determine how you see this show.

In any case, you’ll hear a lot of great new music this week!

Halloween (All Hallow’s Eve… All Saint’s Eve… Samhain… however you refer to it) is upon us. So it’s time for us to explore some appropriately dark music, don’t you think?

Good!   I’m glad we agree.   Let’s get digging then…
