2. The Solid Time Of Change

Part two of The Solid Time of Change aired Saturday May-14, 2016 c/o CiTR.FM.101.9.

 

Youtube playlist (possibly not the exact versions that were played). Podcast download.

This latest Randophonic countdown concerns the  661 Greatest Records of the so-called Prog Rock era, our overlong yet incomplete history of whatever the hell happened between 1965 and 1979 – not in all music, not even in most of it, but definitely in a bunch of it, particularly via bands hailing from the United Kingdom.

What is Prog Rock, and does it somehow differ from Progressive Rock, or for that matter, rock that merely progresses? These may seem simple questions but they are in fact doors that open unto some of the most complex enigmas of this split-atomic age. And what better way to explore them than with a radio journey that shall likely take us a full year.
