The Sound Chaser Progressive Rock Podcast streams once more. This show through all 137 episodes so far has sought to traverse in three-hour increments the rough and thorny landscape of over a half-century of progressive rock and related music. We have gone through the eras of prog, explored the styles of prog, looked at various connections from other music genres, listened to its expressions across cultures, and confronted some of the controversies. Given everything that is stacked against prog – the disdain of music and culture critics, the apologetic justifications of its fans for listening to it, the huge shift in commercial backing toward “safe” music, the huge shift in the way music is financed that leaves artists paid next to nothing although there are more self-styled progressive rock artists than ever – the resilience of the genre, its fans, and its creators is nothing short of amazing. Listeners young and old are asking for more. This episode, number 138, provides another varied selection, answering the question of whether there is more. Though not everything will be to everyone’s taste, yet each listener can finish the show having found something new to them for them to seek out.

The Sound Chaser Progressive Rock Podcast takes another sweeping trip through progressive rock and related music. For those who say that progressive rock is not relevant, I would point them to an article published in Forbes magazine online from March 25th titled "What Can Progressive Rock Teach Us About Digital Networks?"
