In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history, there was Not The AmericanPrög Show. 90 minutes of the finest music, that wasn’t from any of the Americas.

But then, due to a combination of factors, NTAPS 2.0 was born. No more the doubt and desolation of 90 minutes. From thence forth there would be 120 tumescent minutes every week gently inserted into the listening public’s ears. Would they cry for more? If they did their pleas would fall onto the ground like angrily-discarded soup onto sand at a soft play centre.

For now you have 2 hours, listening public. Enjoy.

We were helped out by many fine artistes for this genre-defining moment in internet radio slash podcasting. Here they be. I mean here they are:

The latest Pod features Prog Magazine’s Two-Times Winning Unsung Hero (All Rights Reserved), the marvellous Nellie Pitts. Seen here wearing a hat.


Find out why she is/was unsung. Ask yourself why, after the first time she was deemed to be unsung, she won the Unsung Award again. Learn about prog merchandising, multi-tasking, cat-herding, bag slash hat slash making and more. Hear some groovy tunes, including one that has yodelling in it. And above all, you’ll at least begin to try and fathom out all her many and varied different website addresses. Big Baggy Noddy Friday, et al. She’s so busy she has tons, so we  have tried to help her out by reproducing them all below, in a handily readable format. Called English.
