Okay folks, have some great news for tomorrow's show.

Firstly, we will be featuring an album of the year contender which is the new Fates Warning.

But that's not the big news...

In what I think may be a first in the long run of the show, we will be having a song premier on the show.

Tomorrow night will be the very first chance to hear "Back to the Machine" off of From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess.

And of course you can pre-order that album here: http://www.lazybones.com/buy-stuff

I'm still working on the rest of the show, but those two bits alone make it one worth checking out!

That's really cool, Nick!  Congrats!

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

No promises, but I may be able to tune in, if only for a first hour and a half or so. I hope the new LMR song won't be a show closer or something. :lol

Show tonight! Sorry I'm late in getting prepped, but a ton and a half going on right now.

Feature will be Anderson/Stolt, and we'll be playing a lot of tribute to Beardfish as well.

IF things go down as they might, there will probably be a lot of missed shows/hiatus in the coming months. The length and severity is yet to be seen, but it will likely happen for some time.

Hey folks, sorry my updates have been pretty much non-existent, but here is some info:

First off, after a few missed weeks, there will be a show this Wednesday, Aug. 10th, but it will likely be the last show for awhile.

On the cause of all this. For several years now I've had offers to varying degrees to move from my place of work in Allentown to Plymouth Meeting, and the offers were never good enough to give much thought. This summer, two people in Plymouth Meeting quit, facilitating my companies need to get a competent person down there. I was approached again, and after a two weeks of negotiating finally accepted an offer to transfer. I started August 1st, and changed from having every Wednesday off to working most Wednesdays, and from a 10 minute commute to a, for now, 1 hour commute.

This change also has required I buy my first home, and the search for that home, and starting to get the old place cleaned out and packed up has taken up lots of my free time. We close Sep. 23 and will be moving in either Oct. 1 or Oct. 8. I happen to have this Wednesday off and will be doing the show, but am not sure how many shows I'll get to do between now and being settled in the new home. And even then I don't know if a day or hours will have to change.

Hopefully see a few of you guys tomorrow, and hopefully in a few months things will be back to normal.

It's been a while since I listened to your show (half a year I think), had lectures in the morning during last semester. I don't really have to sleep tomorrow so I'll join :tup (if I don't fall asleep).
And I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do. - Michael Scott

When Prog and Power Unite (www.wpapu.com) will be taking over the airwaves on progrock.com on Wednesday, August 10th, from 5-8pm CDT/6-9pm EDT/10pm-1am UTC!

That's right folks, after over a month off WPaPU returns and there is a ton to go over. I'll be talking about my mini-tour following HAKEN and Thank You Scientist, and also be reviewing my first time at ProgPower USA while of course playing plenty of material from the bands that played. Several of those bands will make their debut on the program including Serious Black - Official and Green Carnation.

I'll also be playing some great new music, including our feature tonight which is Viscous Circle from Edge of Reality! There is also new The Dear Hunter, Evergrey, and more!

Okay folks, I know it's going to be a long time between shows, but the next one *should* be Wednesday, November 2nd.

As I've moved and gotten settled at the new house I'm probably as far behind on new music news as I've ever been, and so I'm turning to you guys for help on what I may have missed over the last month or so. Regulars know what I typically play or promote, so what have I missed? New videos? Recent releases? Upcoming releases? Everything helps!

Okay, so this has been awhile, but show tonight!

Featuring the Neal Morse Band.

The yearly wrap up show will be Jan. 4 with hours yet to be announced.

Year end list and commentary will be available... sometime. We've had massive technical problems on that end of things, unfortunately.

HELLO... Hello... hello...

Where is everyone? In any case, the year end retrospective is upon us! You can hear from myself and Joe in the podcast, and Mason in a separate file, and see our picks of the year!

I'm not really active in regards to the usual shows because I can't make it due to our time differences, but I'm looking forward to that end-of-the-year show at Jan 4th. I will totally be there!

Read your best of 2016 writeup, great stuff. By the way, iamthemorning's album is "Lighthouse", not "Light House". ;)

Time flies, less than a week left! Everyone who can make it time-wise should really come and join this 2016 wrap-up show on January 4th. This is the third year wrap-up show in a row I'll be tuning in for and I've never regretted it, even if I had to stay up until 5 A.M. These shows are awesome, and you guys definitely want to be there. ;)

Hey. Didn't know where else to post this.... Didn't want to start a new thread.

At work tonight we had a band called " Here & Now " who contain ex-members of bands called "Gong" and "Planet Gong"...

Ring any bells ? Supposedly big in the 70s. Psychedelic Prog. Very Pink Floyd.

Not bad. You know a band is prog when they have not one but TWO Gong Cymbals on the drums :biggrin:

That song was nice enough. Although I know of Gong they are a band I never really delved into to be honest.
