The Progressive Tracks Show / Mike “ProgTracks”Pollack

The Progressive Tracks Show airs weekly on Sundays from 5-7am and repeats Mondays, 9-11pm. Says DJ Mike “ProgTracks” Pollack:

My general love of music started early, with my Elvis-era sister and Beatles-era brother as mentors. But when I heard Ian Anderson growl those famous lyrics from Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung” (“Snot is running down his nose……greasy fingers….smeary, shabby clothes.”) I knew I had found MY music.

Progressive Rock (or Prog for short) with the likes of Jethro Tull, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and King Crimson not only consumed me, but also provided the bonus of being highly annoying to my parents.
But that was years ago……

So what does my love for 70s Progressive Rock have to do with being a DJ at KPTZ in this millennium? Prog is long dead, right?
Not true…!

Progressive Rock survived in the underground during the 80s and 90s and has quietly, but doggedly resurged into a current, respected genre.
So that’s where I come in…

I’m your Prog connection to newer artists like Steven Wilson, The Flower Kings, The Mercury Tree, and thousands of others you’ve probably never heard of.
It’s complex and interesting music…but listen to it enough and you might find yourself becoming a fellow ‘ProgHead’.

Prog is Dead! Long live Prog!
