With Classic Rock Through The Ages

Best Progressive Music Of 2012

Broadcast 13/01/2013.

Ok so it's all subjective. These are the tunes and bands that simply "did it" for us over the past 12 months. Prog fans the world over may argue the toss, and we're sorry that we didn't have more time to fit in more of the wonderful output from all over the world. It's a tragedy that we only had 2 hours for this feature.
