(The Old Day IS The New Day)

Many of the issues we face today are not new… we just didn’t learn the lessons of the past.

Fortunately, music isn’t like that. New creations often use the past as building blocks… and the results are impressive (unless of course we didn’t learn anything, and disco makes a comeback). 😉

This week we’ll explore both new and old music, including a 50-year old classic album.

And remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: (there are over 160 now!).

This week’s Prog-Watch is a variety program with a few special features! There will be a little feature on Thomas Thielen and a sneak peek at the next “t” album called Solipsystemology! (Thomas loves those titles that just roll off the tongue, doesn’t he?) I also have a Guest DJ, Bill Dunaway of High Ridge, Missouri, USA! Bill checks in with some of his Prog Rock favorites, and I mix in a few newer tracks, as well. So in addition to the “t” music, you can expect a boatload of great stuff, new and old, from the likes of Bill Bressler, Yes, Duke 72, Vangelis, Red Bazar, Big Big Train, Dreamwalkers Inc, and Spock’s Beard!

On this week’s show my special guests are the gentlemen from the German duo, Clouds Can! I have a feature on their new album Leave, and chat with Dominik Hüttermann and Thomas Thielen “t” about their new “progressive pop” approach. (And with the aid of much coffee, Thomas is in fine form!) Aside from the Clouds Can music, I’m also spinning a few other great tunes by The Wood Demons, Armed Cloud, Servants Of Science, and Michael Crimson!

My special guest this week is the fascinating German artist Thomas Thielen, also known simply as “t”. Tune in to hear epic Prog Rock from his three latest albums, and some of a very deep and interesting conversation I had with Thomas a few weeks ago. Before I dig into it with Thomas, however, I get things rolling with a new track from the great new White Willow album!
