Spock’s Beard

All posts tagged Spock’s Beard

This week’s Prog-Watch is a themed special, and the theme is “Shhhh”! Every song relates to silence or quiet. We’ll hear music from great classic and contemporary artists including Mike + The Mechanics, Unitopia, Chris Squire, Paul Draper, Spock’s Beard, The Flower Kings, Sanguine Hum, Queensryche, Dave Kerzner, RPWL, The Barock Project, and Genesis! Come along for a fun ride!

This week’s Prog-Watch is a variety program with a few special features! There will be a little feature on Thomas Thielen and a sneak peek at the next “t” album called Solipsystemology! (Thomas loves those titles that just roll off the tongue, doesn’t he?) I also have a Guest DJ, Bill Dunaway of High Ridge, Missouri, USA! Bill checks in with some of his Prog Rock favorites, and I mix in a few newer tracks, as well. So in addition to the “t” music, you can expect a boatload of great stuff, new and old, from the likes of Bill Bressler, Yes, Duke 72, Vangelis, Red Bazar, Big Big Train, Dreamwalkers Inc, and Spock’s Beard!

Pure, wholesome variety is on tap for this week’s Prog-Watch! We’ll hear fabulous new music from Argos, Circuline, Rausch, Jason Rubenstein, Gleb Kolyadin and Spock’s Beard! Plus not quite so new (but equally fabulous) stuff from Argent, Cardiacs, Peter Matuchniak, Art Griffin’s Sound Chaser, Isproject, Golden Earring & Michael Penn!

So come on…it’s certified 100% organic and soooo good for you!

Progressive Tracks Show #272 (Theme?  Who Said Anything About A Theme?), originally broadcast on Saturday, July 28, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

In most weeks, The Progressive Tracks Show plays music around a specific theme.  That may also be the case this week… I’m just not going to admit to it.  ;o)

Oh well, at least the music is always excellent.

So take time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock.  It may well be the best part of your day.

Remember, you can access any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are well over 100 now!).

With Spock’s Beard he helped re-invigorate the American Prog scene in the ’90s, and then continued on as a solo artist and eventually with a band bearing his own name. Along the way, he was also a member of not just one, but two Prog Rock super-groups, Transatlantic and Flying Colors. He is, of course, Prog Icon Neal Morse, and this week he is my special guest on Prog-Watch!
