THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #328 (The Power of Three)

The Power of Three, suggests that things that come in threes are funnier, more satisfying, more effective, and/or more memorable, than other numbers of things. There are many celtic, nordic, and pagan examples of this belief.

But does that translate to music? Join us to hear how the power of three translates… progressively.
