Hi,

I'm gonna tell my momma that you stole my idea of playing a bunch of ECM material ... the most neglected stuff EVER ... you're missing Terje Rypdal though (get EOS ... and skip the first cut! ... if you do not like it ... you will never enjoy any better "chamber music" ... that what is there. So ECM, it's not funny!

Clap
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now, where is your own art? An idea? www.pedrosena.com

On January 6 I played 8 songs that I consider worthy of submission to the Hall of Fame of Prog Epics--the best/my favorite prog epics of the year 2017, including: 

BATTLESTATIONS "Vixit III" from my #1-rated Best Album of 2017, Vixit.



TREE TOPS' "Pigeons in Space" from my #5-rated and favorite album of the year, Ghosts Don't Dance with Shoes



Sulana Bassana's ELECTRIC MOON Krautrock project, Stardust Rituals. The song is: "(You Will) Live Forever Now."



Norwegian veterans WOBBLER have produced an universally acclaimed masterpiece in their album From Silence to Somewhere (which I have rated #8 on my year-end Top Albums list) from which we get the epic masterpiece "Foxlight."

https://wobbler.bandcamp.com/album/from-silence-to-somewhere

Ketil Estrum Veinarsen (JAGA JAZZIST, KAUKASUS, WHITE WILLOW, PIXIE NINJA) has been working on his tribute to and resurrection of classic Krautrock sound for several years. With the help of Jacob Holm-Lupo (WHITE WILLOW, THE OPIUM CARTEL), Mattias Olsson (ANGLAGARD, WHITE WILLOW, KAUKASUS, and others) and others he has produced an amazing album called Sehr Kosmisch Ganz Progisch under the group name WESERBERGLAND from which I recognize the song "Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde" as the best of the album's four prog epic songs--and album which came in at #2 on my year-end Top 20 Albums of the Year list. 



BIG BIG TRAIN has been polishing its mastery of symphonic prog to express its appreciation and reverence for little-known or forgotten historical figures from British history for over 20 years. This year's Grimspound contains several masterpieces of prog and three prog epics, including this one, the sublime and yet powerful "Brave Captain."



It took Minneapolis band BUBBLEMATH almost fifteen years to pull together their second album--and we are so glad for it's presence as Edit Peptide came in at #19 on my year-end "Best of" list. Here's the masterful epic, "Routine Maintenance."



ALIO DIE contributed to three 2017 albums that graced my year-end top 30 list. Here we're going to hear the best song from the lot, "Stato di grazia" from ALIO DIE & LINGUA FUNGI's Lento--my #7-rated Album of 2017.

March 5:

Here it is, the playlist from last night's wild and woolly episode of Prog Is Alive! I had a great time with my esteemed guest, Lone Pine Records founder and owner, Bill Fiorella. I learned a lot and pushed myself far outside of my comfort zone while remaining loose and light. It was a fun night!

We hoped you enjoyed our little excursion into our evidential exposition of some of the African influences upon the genesis of progressive rock's Jazz Fusion subgenre. Those cats sure knew how to groove!

As always, you can check out the show for your self anytime during the week by finding the stream in WDRT's Prog Is Alive! archives at www.wdrt.org. Next week I'll be boppin' back to 2017: some of the great epic releases from the Prog Electronica subgenre. Tune in: same prog time, same prog channel!

Even though geography has forced me to retire from broadcasting my live radio show from my beloved studios of WDRT-Viroqua, the station has chosen to retrieve old shows from their music archives for re-broadcasting. 

Why?

Apparently, my show holds all station records for Internet listeners:  live and from archival streaming!!! 

Who knew! 

Obviously, PROG REALLY IS STILL ALIVE and well in the 21st Century!!!
