When you discover something good, it’s difficult not to share it.  And you know me… I do enjoy sharing.

While not everything I’ll feature this week is brand new, I’ll bet most of it you’ll not have heard before.

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