The Progressive Tracks Show #330 (It’s A Tough Business, This Prog)

NOTE: WORLD PREMIERE SONG on this week’s show!

Progressive Rock artists face a myriad of obstacles in creating the music we listeners love and enjoy. This week we’ll hear some of this absolutely stellar music… while I point out some things that make it seem like I understand their struggles (even though I can’t play a note). Oh well, at least the music will be stellar, including that world premiere from one of Zeuhl’s greatest artists!

And remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are over 165 podcasts now!).

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.
