~ My Radio Show at ProgRock.com ~
Why did I develop Prog-Scure?
In essence, since the days when I began collecting records in the early ’70s, what has always annoyed and frustrated me is that many talented and exciting groups I’ve loved through the decades were given little exposure through radio or print media and therefore remain horribly obscure, and what I always wanted to do (if given the opportunity) was to produce and host a radio show that focused on these still-relatively unknown bands and, hopefully, even though many of the groups are no longer in existence, turn people on to some great music they might have missed through the years. Therefore, on Prog-Scure, I play tracks from a mixture of both older and more recent artists that remain a mystery to many people.
Now, keep in mind that one man’s obscure is another man’s famous, so fans of Progressive Rock may or may not be familiar with some of the artists I play. But I have an “obscure” scale, and when asking my buddies whether they’ve heard of a particular band/artist, and the majority say “WHO?,” then I know that band or artist is a likely candidate for me to include on the show.
Also note, I may occasionally play music from more “famous” groups, but if so, the songs I select are typically limited to “forgotten gems” like B-Sides, bonus tracks, etc. that may not be familiar to the more casual Prog-Rock fan. I may also periodically play songs from bands not even normally associated with the Prog-Rock genre, but the songs I include are Prog-oriented nonetheless. So on Prog-Scure, you won’t be hearing any “hits”—no “Roundabout,” no “Karn Evil 9,” no “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway,” or similar fare—only more obscure Prog-Rock material.
Bringing attention to lesser-known artists was my singular goal when developing the show’s concept, so the positive feedback I’ve received since the first episode is most appreciated, thus confirming that what I’m doing with Prog-Scure is contributing something positive to the Prog-Rock community.
