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.

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #288 
(Friendly Relations)

The Progressive Rock community is a pretty tight-knit one. DJ’s, artists, and labels form mutually-beneficial relationships over time… and The Progressive Tracks Show is no different.

Oh… and you’ll understand why when you hear their music!
