Sound Chaser is brought to you by The Dividing Line Broadcast Network

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 Sound Chaser Progressive Rock Podcast reaches show number 100. Since 2014, The Professor has programmed 3002 individual pieces of music. As a recognition of reaching show 100, the program this time combines interests. The Professor is indeed a professor, of literature mostly. So, what better than to have a literature themed show? All the music has a literature connection of some kind. The show also has regular features of the podcasts: musical variety from all the genres and eras of prog, The Symphonic Zone, and news of tours and releases. We also have an In Memoriam segment for the late guitarist Phil Miller. Literature and music combine. It is time to get erudite on Sound Chaser.
