Podcast – The Prog Mill edition 354 (26 February 2023)

Edition 354 of THE PROG MILL for Progzilla Radio (574 in total), first broadcast 26 February 2023, is now also available to stream on demand or download. Two hours of superb melodic & symphonic progressive rock. This week I’m joined once again by Leo Trimming from The Progressive Aspect who reviews two recent live gigs he attended (Francis Dunnery’s It Bites & Kula Shaker), and our fun quickfire quiz invites you to identify five more bands who will be appearing at next weekend’s Fusion festival by hearing just a few seconds of each.
