The idea for the Progressive Discoveries blog came about thanks to a kind invitation from Anthony Rowsick (Progsquatch) to collaborate on his weekly radio show. Prog-Watch is a weekly internet radio programme, aired on Progzilla and ProgPositivity and available on podcast, which is dedicated to bringing people Progressive Rock music from around the world.
We decided that each week there would be segment of the show where I would take a look at themes and issues and see how these were being handled in the latest prog rock releases. After much head scratching I settled on the name ‘Progressive Discoveries’ and we began featuring reviews, analysis and commentary on mainly contemporary releases as part of the the show.
The name also resonated with me in terms of my views on education, books, wine and travel: learning is an experience which happens through the progressions we make as a result of the discoveries we encounter. Progression through discovery. And so this blog was born!
You can catch Progressive Discoveries on Prog-Watch every Sunday at 1:30 pm, Monday at 6:30 pm, and Wednesday at 11:00 pm (all times UK) on Progzilla radio.
