Prog Frog Playlist
This is Prog FrogCarefully considered progressive rock radio.
1967-2022… a wide range of sonic signatures, complete with wildly varying volume settings. We’ve done the heavy lifting, attempting to “normalize” for your optimal listening experience, using complex audio algorithms. Sometimes, it’s flawless. Occasionally, you’ll note the difference within the song, and that’s not flawless. But we’ve put the effort in to make this a consistent station, good enough for everyday listening. We hope you appreciate the love and care we’ve put into it. We wouldn’t settle for less.
We’re not solving world hunger, nor curing childhood cancer. But we’ve been at this for several years now, and it would be nice to slightly defray some of the operating costs we’ve incurred. We’re grateful you’d consider supporting Prog Frog’s continuous broadcast. Click the button above to make a single or recurring donation, and earn a spot on our wall of fame.
What we’re reading/listening to.
Top of list, most recent release, we’re reading Mike Barnes’s A New Day Yesterday: UK Progressive Rock & The 1970s. Got so excited for the Gone-with-the-Wind size tome, ultimately ended up purchasing the audiobook as well, so ’twas possible to listen to the book while driving or working out. A rich trove of material from the glory days of Progressive Rock (and he didn’t miss Renaissance), our highest recommendation!
The Show That Never Ends is an amazing collection of anecdotes and interviews, tracing the history of progressive rock from precursors to latter-day prog cruises peopled by once-heroes of the genre. One might wonder how Dave Weigel, the national political correspondent for The Washington Post, gets caught up in the netherworlds of progressive rock, but it’s obviously a well-curated homage to a sound he grew to love. Even if he failed to give Renaissance their due.
