This week on Prog-Watch my very special guest is Dave Oberle of Gryphon! Tune in to hear some of our chat about the band and the making of their latest album ‘Get Out Of My Father’s Car’. Along the way I will of course be spinning some great Gryphon music…some classics from the 1970s, and some future classics from their most recent albums, including a few from the new one!

810: In Conversation with Dave Oberlé of Gryphon


Come sail away with Prog-Watch this week, where every song will have the root word “sail” in the title! Aside from Styx (who provide the theme song, of course) we will also be hearing from Ayreon, Mystery, Carmen, Golden Earring, Manning, Elton John, Jon & Vangelis, The Strawbs, Gryphon, Radio Head, Moon Safari, Robert Palmer, John Hackett & Nick Fletcher, and Mike Oldfield! You’ll almost be able to smell the salt water, and feel the wind on your face and the rocking of the waves! Well…almost…

724: Come Sail Away


(…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).


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!!
