 THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #347 (In Your Face…)

There IS harmony to be found in the dissonance…especially if it’s in your face (whether new or classic).

And while that may not be what you always listen to, shows like this provide an opportunity to stretch your progressive ‘aural muscles’.

So join me… and get to stretchin’!     ;o)
