Progressive Tracks Show #252 (A Matter Of Priorities), originally broadcast on Saturday, March 10, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Warning… Opinions Ahead:  We in the United States must get our priorities in order, to solve a most critical and contentious problem.  An unexpected interest group has stepped up to try to force solutions… but progress has been slow so far, and they’ll need our help if they are to succeed.  And their success is paramount to our future.

Who?  What?  C’mon, Mike, what the heck are you talking about?

Nope.  You’re going to have to tune in this week to hear another theme show centered around this topic.  Just know that I don’t offer any solutions… I simply play Prog.     ;o)

NOTE:  This podcast is extended a bit from what I had time to play on the air… but I wanted you to hear it.  Enjoy the additional song (#2 in the playlist)!

The podcast for this week’s Prog-Watch is now available at Progwatch.com

For this week’s program I’ve put together a variety show with a little tribute to the late Colin Tench. We’ll hear a new one from the Colin Tench Project, and two from a couple of his other projects, BunChakeze and Corvus Stone. I’ll also be spinning lots of great stuff from The Fierce & The Dead, Fractal Mirror, Bram Stoker, Jethro Tull, Steven Wilson, Downes-Braide Association, Rush, Spiral Key, and Somnambulist.
