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.

PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #323 (Get Out and LIVE a Little)

Listening to music at home or with friends is certainly a relaxing pastime. But nothing compares to seeing artists at their best in a live setting.

There are plenty of great artists on tour who are coming to Seattle (and nearby areas) that we’ll explore this week. Grab your personal calendar, tune in, and book your musical entertainment for the rest of 2019.

Go on… get out and LIVE a little!

The Progressive Tracks Show #221 (#116 REDUX – A Tribute To Chris Squire), originally recorded at KPTZ 91.9 FM on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, is now available to download or listen to any time you desire.

Life has gotten in the way of The Progressive Tracks Show this week, and so I find myself having to (wanting to) play an older (pre-Progzilla Radio) show.  What to pick… what to pick…

Having just marked the second anniversary of Chris Squire’s death, as well as his recent posthumous induction with Yes into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… this pick was a no-brainer, really:  Loads of the ‘Fish’ packed into a mere 90 minutes (60 of the original KPTZ show, plus 30 bonus minutes).

There will never be another… Chris Squire.  R.I.P.

NOTE:   I recorded this just a few days after Chris’ death, so excuse the occasional cracking of my voice (I still get a bit teary listening to some of this music).

PLAYLIST:

  • The Syn – “14 Hour Technicolour Dream” from The Roots Of Yes 1964-68 on Purple Pyramid Records
  • Mabel Greer’s Toyshop – “Beyond and Before (Demo)” from The Roots Of Yes 1964-68 on Purple Pyramid Records
