Progressive Rock Shows Highlights #3: "The Really Big Prog Show"

"The Really Big Prog Show" which originally aired on the April 12, 2009 edition of The Irrelevant Rock & Roll & Music Show was the first of a series of shows fully dedicated to progressive rock, both classic and new.

Listen to the show by clicking here.

Progressive folk rock pioneers, The Strawbs, are featured in this show, including a discussion of their "The Broken Hearted Bride" album, released in September 2008.

The Strawbs are also the focus of a "Retro Perspective" discussion of their career by J. Hoskins & Krafty.

You'll find lots more info about The Strawbs on their extensive website.

Other show highlights include "Crossfire" in which two new albums are showcased and debated.

In the Crossfire on this show are the debut album from Diagonal, and X-World/5's "New Universal Order."

Another feature of IRRMS is the Find of the Week, in which great albums that may have been overlooked are featured. On this show we uncover "Second Life Syndrome" by Riverside, which was released in 2005.

You'll find more info on this Riverside on their website and also at Progarchives.

Also included in the show is our Alternative Classic Rock Track, "Knife Edge," by Emerson, Lake and Palmer, from ELP's 1970 debut album.

Progressive Rock Shows Highlights #2

One of the great progressive rock bands, although on the softer, moodier side, is The Moody Blues.

Back in Season 2, the December 7, 2008 edition of The Irrelevant Rock & Roll & Music Show included a Retro Retrospective on The Moody Blues. You can listen to the show here.

For more on The Moody Blues, check out their website.

Another great source of info and commentary about The Moody Blues and their extensive musical legacy, is their page at Progarchives, the Ultimate Prog Rock Resource.

Progressive Rock Shows Highlights #1

A favorite theme of the Irrelevant Rock & Roll & Music Show has been Progressive Rock, or simply Prog.

Back in Season 1, the April 13, 2008 show "The New Prog" was the focus of a "Crossfire" segment, where the merits of The Mars Volta's "The Bedlam in Goliath" album and Threshold's "Dead Reckoning" are debated by J. Hoskins & Krafty.
