Yesterday I heard Long Distance Runaround/The Fish by Yes on the radio, the D.J said she played it as a tribute to Chris Squire

Another Kroger experience - but last week the wife and I were grocery shopping to the sounds of "The Spell" by Uriah Heep. Demons And Wizards really was outstanding.

Once we were watching Fringe with a couple of friends and at the end of the episode they put Roundabout.. Doesn't technicaly count as prog in a public place, but my friends didn't know the song so..

I was at a Genesis concert in 1997 at NEC in Birmingham (a beautiful city!). This was when Ray Winstone, the hardman actor, had replaced Phil Collins in Genesis, as Phil had gone off to destroy his remaining credibility becoming a pop star.
 
Well the show was a shocker, even Ray Winstone's gruff hardman attitude could not rescue it, but I could have sworn I heard the briefest moment when they played something resembling progressive music.

Back in the early '80s, I was at a bicycle race in the eastern county of San Diego, and among all the music over the loudspeakers that day, Genesis' Abacab was played in its entirety. Not exactly deep, classical prog, mind you, but it was kind of an oddity when the average bike race music rivals that of the typical chicken-fried variety one could hear at any large air show across this great country of ours.
It just has none of the qualities of your work that I find interesting. Abandon (?) it.

Completely unexpected. Completely delighted. I was grocery shopping with my wife at Kroger's (a huge regional chain), and I was perusing the imported cheeses when, suddenly, what the hell should start playing on the overhead muzak but "The Witch's Promise" by Tull! I have never heard the song played on radio, let alone a grocery store. We stopped and listened to the whole thing while snacking on various cheeses at the counter. All that was further necessary was a glass of wine.

I was with a friend having a meal at Burger King, and playing was ELP's From the Beginning! That made my day.

Watched a documentary about the rise and fall of the hippie movement last night which had interviewed members of Amon Düül II and Gong. Interesting how ADII's relation to the Rote Armee Fraktion parallels that of MC5's to the White Panthers. In both the cases it's the tension between people who wanted to be bigger than the Beatles and people who wanted to be bigger than Lenin...
