Hi folks. I've got a number of shows planned which include the likes of Caravan, Edition Especiale, Zappa, Passport, Hatfield North & The McCoy, Rush, Windchase.

Would you like to suggest some groups? If so, please use this thread to do so. I welcome all suggestions. I do value your feedback.

Thanks for your considerations.

See you on the Mooniverse

Dale






(But I cannot guarantee I'll play them.)

Here are a handful,

Ozric Tentacles - a lot to choose from
Hawkwind - a lot to choose from here
Mahogany Frog - Canadian space rock type stuff
After Crying
Banco

Some of these may have already been covered, unfortunately I don't catch every show.

I think that you should feature some of the FARfest groups. The festival appears to be struggling getting off the ground, and any exposure to the groups may help. The 70s synphonic groups playing are:

Alphataurus
Atoll
Cathedral
Cressida
Latte E Miele
Locanda Delle Fate
Maxophone
Mezquita
Pulsar
SBB
Shylock

Definately, Lotus. I have done one show on each of them already but there is a deep discography that will be revisited.

Thank you.

How about a show on not so known bands or tracks such as The Dark's The Jam and the band Dennis-Hyperthalamus I turned you on to a while back.You could throw in tracks that not every1 would have known of.A show not just about 1 band.

That might be the crime of the century if Supertramp was left out.

I'll be in touch. Send me a PM with what you've thought to send in.

Gratefully,

Kip Hanrahan (Coup de Tete and Desire Develops an Edge are 2 good albums)
Carla Bley - she has a lot of interesting stuff
Happy the Man (a personal favorite, not sure if you already featured them...)
Toshiko Akiyoshi- Lew Tabackin Big Band
Oh, a great album that is called That's the way I feel Now- A tribute to Thelonius Monk featuring a bunch of interesting artists paying tribute to the master of spherical oddness :-)

Of course, a few regulars will make comments about how that music is not progressive, how it is "too jazz". So just play more Yes, Genesis, ELP, that's what real music lovers want to hear...

I'd like to hear some german music. Almost everything with Klaus Schulze or Manuel Gottsching is good, but especially when they are together.

There's also a great live LP by Magma...
