This week on Prog-Watch: great new music from D’Virgilio, Morse, and Jennings, Tears For Fears, The Flower Kings, Kite Parade, and Marillion! Then, in the second half of the program I will finish up the feature on Chris Ramsing and his band PsychoYogi which I began last week! We’ll hear a bit more chat, and a bit more of PsychoYogi’s unique brand of “leftfield punk jazz”!
