THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #333  (Music As Refuge)

I’ve learned a lot over the past 6 years of presenting The Progressive Tracks Show:

I’ve learned that music matters more than what the presenting DJ says… I’ve learned that up-and-coming musicians need DJ and listener support to continue creating new music… and I’ve also learned that some music is a refuge… especially in difficult times.

Tonight’s music is a refuge for those who need it… but there may be more to it, if you dig a bit deeper.

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!

632: Shhh

 

Yep, this week it’s another of my indeterminate, music-driven theme shows.

While the show’s title explains a lot… the image representing the show may confuse you.  But I assure you, it’s relevant to the story.

I’ve incorporated some new releases in with some classics for this show.  So keep your ears open for some great music you’ve not heard!

Take time to put on some headphones and immerse yourself in some quality, message-laden progressive rock.  Just remember… the message you decipher is your own.

Because the days are still long: Remember, you can steam/download this, and any of the 113 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.

This week’s Prog-Watch is another edition of EPIX! My usual criteria apply: an EPIC must be over 10 minutes long; and we will hear one for each major decade of our favorite genre! This time we’ll hear music from The Flower Kings, Big Big Train, Southern Empire, Jethro Tull and Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe!

I hope you will join me for some wonderful, modern rock symphonies!

 

533: Epix, Vol. 3

 

Progressive Tracks Show #268 (Suffer The Children), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 30, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

For Independence Day:  Another current events theme show this week… designed with great tunes to make you think.  But what you think is up to you… not me.  After all, it’s still a free country, right?
