THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #300 
(…And The Shows Fell, One By One)

300 Progressive Tracks shows don’t seem a lot, against the multitudes of invading music shows. But, if you’re a student of history, you know that quantity has little to do with strength.

Despite overwhelming odds, ProgTracks has led his listeners over the past 6 years, into battle against all that is mediocre (or even remotely hipster) in sound. Refusing to lay down his headphones for anyone, he has created a show as bombastic and entertaining as any in the prog realm (or any comparatively cheesy big-budget movie).

;o)

Won’t you join The Progressive Tracks Show ranks, to help secure the next 300? Ready your headphones and listen intently… for tonight we Prog!  Madness?  No… this is The Progressive Tracks Show!!

ProgHeads!!  Prepare For Glory!!

Remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are 139 now!).

PLAYLIST:

  • Ibex – “Parthenogenesis” from Parthenogenesis on Independent (2017)
  • Lizard – “Half-Live” from Half-Live on Audio Cave (2018)
  • Gryphon – “(Ein Klein) Heidenleben” from Raindances on Cherry Red Records (1975)
  • All Traps On Earth – “Omen” from A Drop Of Light on Independent (2018)

If you have comments or suggestions for show topics/ music (always welcome), feel free to contact me any time via email:  ProgTracks@KPTZ.org

But first… enjoy the show!
