About This Show

Show Info: "Progkast" is an International Underground Indie Off the Radar Prog Rock Podcast (Classical Progressive Rock, Symphonic Rock, Experimental, Avant Garde, Jazz Rock Fusion, Prog metal, Medieval Rock and Lo-Fi Retro Psych Rock) with an emphasis on recent releases from virtually unknown artists from all over the world, particularly Prog/Psych/Fusion. I pick through the releases and choose the best stuff - As the Producer / Music Curator of Jul's Progkast, I do the work so you don't have to - the easy way for you to discover new bands and music. Who is Jul? I am a Record Collector, Connoisseur, Musician, and overall Audiophile, as well as an ex-Radio DJ/Programmer. As a Disc Jockey, my forte was picking music, set list design, and segues. It is now almost thirty years later, and Rock music (Prog in particular) has been claimed by many to be dead. Radio, today, is overrun by oldies and rap and slushy non-melodic lyric pop. My goal with this podcast is to get people listening to rock again, Prog Rock in particular and hear music they otherwise would never have heard - Underground, new (some old) and independent bands. I truly believe that if anyone listens to one of the episodes, if not the first time listening, or second time, definitely the third time listening to the same episode (download it!), you will come away with these songs on your mind, and a favorite new tune! My aim is to play music for those who are well versed in Prog/Jazz Rock/ Experimental Rock, as well as play more short and melodic tunes for the casual listener, without offending or "losing" either one. This is my mission. Most of the music I play is via creative commons license and is available free from various sources. Some of the music I play is by special permission from the artists and is available to buy from various sources. Sources to find these artists include, the Free Music Archive, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Patreon, and Magnatune. Peace. Please fill out short survey concerning this Podcast -
