This week’s Prog-Watch is an entire show dedicated to prog rock classic tracks! I’m spinning tunes by Genesis, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, King Crimson, Kansas, The Alan Parson Project, Yes, Jethro Tull, The Electric Light Orchestra, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, and Caravan! Our friend and resident reviewer, Dr. Rob Fisher, is also doing a Progressive Discoveries segment on a classic album… Breathless by Camel! Come along as Prog-Watch goes “old school”!

648: Classix, Vol. 1

 

 

Time Of The Season by The Zombies is one of the first songs I can remember hearing as a child, and that strange beat and smooth, almost ethereal (over an AM radio!) vocal made a lasting impression. So it was with great pleasure that I was actually able to interview the owner of that voice, Mr. Colin Blunstone, a few weeks back! As an original British Invasion artist he had many recollections of those heady days, and also talked about his solo career, and time spent with The Alan Parsons Project and the offshoot band Keats. Tune in to this week’s Prog-Watch to hear some of that interview, and a whole lot of great music by The Zombies, The APP, Keats, Colin alone, and some bloke named Neil MacArthur! (If you don’t know who this is, tune in and find out!)
