THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #337
(Unearthing Treasure)

I’ve found many great independent artists during my 6 years at KPTZ.  And I’ve come to realize that just because an artist isn’t a big name, or are on a big label, doesn’t mean they’re not producing top-quality music.

I consider all the artists on this week’s show to be treasures… so discover, and enjoy them, with me.

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #333  (Music As Refuge)

I’ve learned a lot over the past 6 years of presenting The Progressive Tracks Show:

I’ve learned that music matters more than what the presenting DJ says… I’ve learned that up-and-coming musicians need DJ and listener support to continue creating new music… and I’ve also learned that some music is a refuge… especially in difficult times.

Tonight’s music is a refuge for those who need it… but there may be more to it, if you dig a bit deeper.
