BBC Radio 4 today repeated their 30-minute programme about Progressive Rock, entitled My Wizard:

"John Aizlewood takes a look back at the progressive rock movement of the '70s and and why it became the genre that dared not mention its name. Contributors include Keith Emerson, Ian Anderson and Rod Argent."

You can listen to the programme online here:

A very interesting programme. I don't agree with some of the views presented here but I like the excerpts from interviews. It has a good overall view of 70's prog, in my opinion.

I enjoyed that greatly, thanks for the heads up.  Thank God for the BBC. 

It was a particular pleasure to listen to Ian Anderson's take on things.
