A jazzier show than I've played in a bit, the first hour or so at least.  I've grouped or paired up tunes in sets that have some similarity, mostly in style or instrumentation, including some new music by Frogg Cafe.  The second half of the show is the longest slab of Progressive Epicness I've ever come across - Galleon's opus "The Ocean".

Show #41 - Progski - Music of Eastern Europe

   Posted: July 23rd, 2007 for download/stream anytime
   Show replay at 12 noon PDT July 30th and August 6th

It's a (dissolved) Warsaw Pact progressive (especially neoprogressive) feast as we study the similarities and disparities of music which has
come to us the last two decades from Poland, Hungary, and Russia. In my brief reading of it, the family tree is Collage -> Satellite and
Collage -> Believe, and your assignment is to fill in the tree for the other bands if there are any "roots to branches" I've missed. I could
also use a little pronunciation help with the musicians names!

Please also let me know of other eastern European / Russian bands that we should know more about.
