Digressive Rock Hour

We are considering starting a new show on Aural Moon, called the "Digressive Rock Hour". It would be a one hour long show (duh!), and feature music that is NOT on the playlist, is not prog, but music that the show host (and to a lesser extent ME) feel that prog fans might like. Is there any interest, or hate, about a show like that? Let us know before we spend any more time producing it...

Jim

Is this a fixed show host, or are you suggesting guest hosts could do shows? How much does it pay?

We could call it the Tommy Bolin / XTC / Thomas Dolby Hour

Re: Digressive Rock Hour

Ah yes an idea - then we could hear the Beatles once in a while. I think we all could contribute to such a show as we all have music that is not on AM and not described as prog. There is the label "alternative" which one could shove a whole load of music under.

I might have a few items to fall into that category.

I'm all for it.

Re: Digressive Rock Hour

It would be cool to open some prog eyes to other well thought out music...I'm all for it... progressive music to me encompasses Ethnic music, folk, psychedelic, celtic, indian classical, all the ECM label stuff, anything thats well put together... For me..its not commercial music at all... BUT whatever it is , I think it would be cool as long as we keep a balance between the shows and just listening to already HUGE library...Shows are good but one of the best things about the moon is that you can request songs and pull from the vast library...you can always find something that you haven't heard in our library...soooo.....I think thats cool too...anyway, I'm always up for something new...so do it...just do it...

True, but the kicker here is it's only one hour.

Re: Digressive Rock Hour

Maybe it's a good idea to listen to my show : Vanished Rock Treasures, it's every sunday morning (local time) : 3 hours long great music from the last 50 years. Unfortunately the US people have to stay up very late because it's in the middle of the night.
Anyway : I play all kinds of good taste music. I don't care if it's prog or not. But, of course there is a lot of prog.
You can tune in on www.rockfmonline.be (sunday 9 - 12 local time in Belgium).
Last show I had : Andy Pratt, Arlo Guthrie, Spike Woods,Jefferson Airplane, Barclay James Harvest, Renaissance, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Roy Harper, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Phil Ochs, Dan Fogelberg, Sad Café, Spirit, Comus, Gordon Lightfoot, Todd Rundgren, Steve Young ... and many more.

Greetings,

ErikM
