This is one of the most beautiful things that ever happened to me. Coming back from the beach I was listening to Relayer in the car with my brother and my father, and we stopped at a traffic light. A white and luxurious car pulls up next to us and the music is very loud. We turned down the volume to see what was playing and you won't believe what it was.... That's right, Relayer! Here in my city there is almost no progressive rock movement, everyone listens to reggaeton and music with no spirit. The chances of that happening are very slim. It surprised us and brought a big smile to our faces.

Ok, but were you both listening to the same song? Did you say something to the guy?

I remember after seeing a show (I think Jon Anderson) there was a woman walking along and her phone rang. She had a song from relayer (I think gates of delirium) as her ringtone. I talked to her and quickly realized who she was because we were both members of the Yes fans website. Anyway, your story beats mine for sure.

So I guess we should assume if he were to have Genesis on his show he would want Mike Rutherford, Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Chris Stewart and Anthony Phillips? ;)

On 102.9 WMGK, I heard a Steve Hackett commercial with the synthesizer solo of Cinema Show playing.

That's cool. I don't really listen to that station anymore but I sometimes look at their playlist online. They rarely if ever play any Genesis from the Steve Hackett or PG era. They also rarely play any Yes songs other than I've seen All good people. The other day for Jon Anderson's birthday they played a few they don't usually play though. I looked at the WMMR playlist too and even they played some Yes stuff on Jon Anderson's birthday also. They play Yes even less frequently than MGK.

Unrelated, but Seth name-dropped his head writer Alex Baez, and that's my dad's old college friend. We met him in NY at 30 Rockefeller and he introduced us to Seth Myers and a couple other SNL people and got the inside scoop on how Myers was going to get his own show and asked Alex to come with.

No unfortunately. It all happened so fast! I remember turning down the volume and it took me about 5 or 10 seconds to recognise that it was the same disc because the chances of that happening are almost invisible. When I told them about it, the traffic light was already green and we couldn't say anything to him (on top of that he turned into another street). Your story is nice too! One of those that you don't forget.

Ah, La Feliz, lovely city Thumbs Up. Although most people in this country unfortunately listen to the music you mentioned (can't say about cities in particular since I don't know enough) I think there's a decent enough amount of prog love. Roger Waters, King Crimson, Yes, ELP, Ian Anderson/Tull, etc. all came to play a few times and played to good crowds.

There is a new Ford F150 commercial that uses Atlas by Battles. One of the wackier choices for a pickup truck jingle.

I'm pretty sure that was probably more of a JoJo reference than it was an intentional way to sneak Yes in there. I say that because apparently the anime series Jo Jo's bizarre adventures often ends with roundabout playing.

^After doing a little digging online and googling "to be continued meme music" and having roundabout pop up I can now say with certainty that was definitely a JoJo reference.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure was definitely created by a prog fan. Apparently the series uses music by Yes as well as KC, and there are a few veiled KC references in the show I've been told.

Last Train Home by Pat Metheny was apparently used also.

I am a big fan of Olive and Mabel, the Labrador retriever YouTube stars, made famous by their human, Andrew Cotter, an temporarily unemployed sports commentator from Scotland.  He's published a book about them, which is quite a joy to read.  I came across this passage at the end of a chapter about things the two dogs are inexplicably terrified of.

Mabel, the yellow Lab, is terrified of the beeps that Andrew's GoPro camera makes (my dog is the same about smoke detector beeps), despite the fact that other household beeps leave her completely unmoved.  Here he ponders: "Who knows, perhaps to Mabel the exact frequency of a GoPro contains a hidden message, like a '70's pro rock album played backward, telling her she's going to be taken to a dog pound run by cats."

Highly recommended viewing of the YouTube videos can be seen here, for those unfamiliar.  The first one sets the stage for all that follow.  https://www.youtube.com/user/admcotter
