Podcast – The Prog Mill Remembrance Special “Lillies of the Dead” – 10 November 2019

The PROG MILL Remembrance Special “Lillies of the Dead” (edition 183 for Progzilla Radio and 403 in total), compiled by Leo Trimming of The Progressive Aspect for the Prog Mill and first broadcast 10 November, is now also available to stream on demand or download as a mp3 file. It is highly recommended that you make time to listen to the whole two hours in one go, and a warning, you may find some of it quite emotional. This week’s show features voices from World War 1 soldiers and their families mixed with a selection of progressive rock tracks associated with war and in particular WW1.

Here’s The Playlist but the music is only half of what the show is all about. Listen to the voices and how cleverly Leo has weaved it together.
