Another milestone ProgTracks show… one that Mike never dreamed he’d reach.

This week on Prog-Watch I’m taking a look at the rich and diverse Musical World of Rick Wakeman! Of course we’ll hear music from his time with The Strawbs, Yes, and Anderson Bruford, Wakeman & Howe, and from his most recent foray into the world of Yes music with Jon Anderson and Trevor Rabin! I’ll also be exploring some of his collaborations with son Adam and Mr. Anderson, and some of his early session work for David Bowie and Cat Stevens! Great Rick Wakeman music will abound!

741: The Musical World of Rick Wakeman

 

This week’s Prog-Watch is a Variety program with a Guest DJ Feature! I’ll be spinning tracks from Robyn Ferguson, Tarmak, Ubi Maior, Airbag, Silas and Saski, Nick D’Virgilio, Steve Thorne, and Haken! Our Guest DJ, Mr. Tony Zappa (no relation to Frank, he informs me) has chosen songs from Yes, Spock’s Beard, King Crimson, and Jon And Vangelis, and I’ll be mixing those in and reading Tony’s commentary!

723: Variety with a Guest DJ Feature

This week I’m celebrating the 5th Birthday of my flagship station, Progzilla Radio, with a special exploring five of the albums that got me into Progressive Rock in the first place! Take a little trip down memory lane with me and the Beatles, the Moody Blues, the Alan Parsons Project, Genesis, and Yes! 

Special: Celebrating Progzilla Radio’s 5th Birthday

 

That ‘other’ entity at which I present over in the United Kingdom is celebrating 5 years on the Internet.  So all the Progzilla Radio DJ’s have created shows featuring the songs that hooked them on progressive rock, as well as some favorites from the past 5 years.  Even though I broke the rules… just a bit, this is mine.

Why celebrate Progzilla Radio’s 5th Birthday on KPTZ?

You might also ask: Why is a raven like a writing desk?  I haven’t the slightest idea!
