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

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.

We’ll hear from Queensryche, the Colin Tench Project, Magenta, Steve Winwood, Lifesigns, Fish, the Strawbs, Arena, and Steven Wilson! Plus, there will be another edition of Progressive Discoveries with Dr. Rob Fisher, looking at the great new album by White Moth Black Butterfly!

On this week’s show we are catching up with the Jonses! Or at least one of the Joneses…namely, our friend Peter Jones of Tiger Moth Tales! Peter had a helluva year in 2016, from guesting on albums by Red Bazar and The Colin Tench Project, to live Tiger Moth Tales gigs with a full band, and even touring Japan as part of the legendary Camel! I caught up with him late last year and we discussed all of this and more. Plus, I play a lot of great music in between the chat, so in the words of Yoda, “miss it not!”
