The Nice

All posts tagged The Nice

This week on Prog-Watch it’s another of my themed specials, and the theme is family! Every song has to do with family and especially close family members (Mother, Father, Sister and Brother)! Music will be supplied by great classic and contemporary artists, including Jethro Tull, Genesis, Yes, Pendragon, Alan Parsons, Renaissance, Seven Steps To The Green Door, Queen, IO Earth, Traffic, The Nice, The Who, Dukes Of The Orient, and Peter Gabriel! Come along for a fun ride!

639: All in the Family

 

Progressive Tracks Show #252 (A Matter Of Priorities), originally broadcast on Saturday, March 10, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

Warning… Opinions Ahead:  We in the United States must get our priorities in order, to solve a most critical and contentious problem.  An unexpected interest group has stepped up to try to force solutions… but progress has been slow so far, and they’ll need our help if they are to succeed.  And their success is paramount to our future.

Who?  What?  C’mon, Mike, what the heck are you talking about?

Nope.  You’re going to have to tune in this week to hear another theme show centered around this topic.  Just know that I don’t offer any solutions… I simply play Prog.     ;o)

NOTE:  This podcast is extended a bit from what I had time to play on the air… but I wanted you to hear it.  Enjoy the additional song (#2 in the playlist)!

After being challenged by a listener to ‘lighten up’, dump the gloom, and become more cheerful… I do my best, while playing some independent artists, new music, and another Golden Tracks album that is turning 50.

Listen in to see if I can actually do it!
