Sound Chaser - Hosted by David Layton

Available On Demand

Spanning the globe to give you the constant variety of Prog. The thrill of mellotrons. And the agony of the 80s. The musical drama of epic compositions. This is Soundchaser. The Professor will host three hours of music selected from the history of progressive rock, the 1960s to the present. The main feature of every broadcast will be at least an hour of symphonic progressive, the boldest, most robust flavors prog has to offer. The program will feature many varietal selections as well, from fusion, progressive ambient, psychedelic, eclectic progressive, RIO, folk, and crossover progressive. The program is for the discerning and daring connoisseur of progressive rock. Relax. Open the aural palette. Delights to follow.

  • The Professor presents a special edition of Sound Chaser. This time, we focus on the origins of progressive rock: music from 1966-1969. Many of the principal acts of early progressive rock started in the 1960s. Many more acts were experimenting with the elements that would combine to make prog. On this show there is some psychedelia, some folk rock, some British folk revival, some proto-prog, and some just all-around nice tunes. We give you news of tours and releases. And we even have a Symphonic Zone. It's time to tack a trip back.
