Soundscape #176 A Prog Fantasy

Although this show had a theme, the theme itself is locked inside my mind and even I do not know what it is all about. I set out to create a nice flowing set that started out to be about thoughts and thought patterns but somewhere in the middle it took on a life of it's own. Through twists and turns we take you on an enjoyable and dreamy journey.

Next weeks episode, dubbed the Great Prog Machine, is all about life inside the machine, gears, gadgets, wheels and levers. So if you have any songs that fit the mood, you can send them to

Soundscape #177 Machine

While it is not the greatest theme idea we have run, the machine definitely put us in touch with some good music. No worries, some pretty cool themes will be coming up for the Holidays.

Next week we will be revisiting the fall of 1972 for a tast of autumn proggy goodness as we continue our history of prog series. The next 2 themes will be: best use of saxophone in a prog song, and a shakespearean theme. Send suggestions to

Soundscape #178 The Wolves of Autumn

Seasons greetings fellow prog fans,

This weeks episode take on another excursion into the fall of 1972 with a continued focus on September. We also take some time to check out new material from Gong from their album 2032. This episode starts a new weekly feature we will call Suzi's corner in which Suzi plays some of her favorites for you. Finally, we pay homage to our fallen musical friend Eric Woolfson with some choice cuts from his time in The Alan Parsons Project as well as solo material. Eric was a truly wonderful spirit, we will miss him greatly.

Next week we take another trip to the prog library as we explore the impact of Shakespeares many works on the progressive soundscape. Lots of ideas are coming in for this theme and we look forward to hearing from you guys to let us know what songs you think are connected to the legendary bard.

What is your favorite use of a saxophone in prog? That is a theme that is ripe for exploration and we will be investigating the answer very soon.

Finally, in Porcupine Tree's "Arriving Somewhere but not Here" the lyric says "Did you imagine the final sound that you hear as your fading out was a song?" A morbid topic to say the least, but if you listeners will send in songs that you would like to hear as you "fade out" we may have a morbid yet imaginative theme on our hands that could just send shivers through us all.

Please send your suggestions, thoughts and requests to

Soundscape #179 By the Progging of My Thumbs

To prog or not to prog that is the question....

This weeks theme takes us on a brief survey of progressive rock that is influenced by the works of Shakespeare. While this certainly was not definitive, it did turn up a lot of interesting songs. Also check out new tunes from Prog Alien, IZZ, Longshanks and more.

Next weeks theme will be our favorite uses of saxophone in a progressive song. A few ideas have cropped up, but we need your help. Please send your favorite saxophone songs to

Soundscape #180 Saxual Fantasies

Wow!! What an amazingly fun show! I think I have redeveloped my love of the saxophone. I might even (after winter semester completes) pull out the old Tenor and see if I still can play a scale. There was so much participation in the soundscape and dividingline chat lists, as well as from prog archives, that this show became a full 4 hours of saxophone drenched music. You will everything from dirty street and gutter sax, to wildly experimental squeals that shoot up and down your spine. Who knew the sax could be so versatile. Please enjoy this one of a kind show and let us know your thoughts.

Soundscape will be taking at least a week off as we move into the new year. We have 3 themes that are in prep stages at this time. To begin with to cap the year, we want to pillage through the new items from 2009 and present them on a big proggy silver platter. We are also looking forward to continuing our long journey through the music of 1972. But here is the one we are most excited about and this will take your participation. In Porcupine Tree's "Arriving Somewhere but not Here" one of the lyrics is "Did you ever imagine the last thing you'd hear as you're fading out was a song?" So we ask you this question, what song would you like to hear as you are fading out? While this may seem a morbid topic, I think it will spawn a pretty incredible set list. Please let us know your thoughts! If you are brave enough, you can even send an mp3 of your explanation for your choice. Send your suggestions and explanations to

Soundscape #182: Arriving Somewhere

Hello fellow soundscapers! This weeks theme evolved out of an idea from Porcupine Tree "Did you ever imagine the last thing you'd hear as your fading out was a song?". Grammar troubles aside, the question is what song would you like to hear as you die. This is a morbid question but it generated a fantastic list of music and all thanks to the input of many of our listeners. We had a great time with this show and we hope you will too.

Due to the death of a mouse and a feedback loop, please be prepared for a rather loud sound at the end of Transatlantic. Editing was not an option this time.

Next week we will be doing our first label feature theme. We will be exploring the musical outputs of Metal Mind Productions which has of late offered many new progressive outings. You have heard many of these artists on Soundscape before, but this time you will be able to put the sounds and the label together. Also, In just 2 weeks we will finally get back to some history- the journey continues throught the great prog albums of 1972.

If you enjoy listening to our show, spread the word. We love to hear from our listeners, and we love requests. Our show is what it is due to listener input and without the chorus, our time on stage would not be as fruitful. You can contact us at-

Soundscape #183 Metal Minds

Hello fellow proggies,

In this week show we feature some of the many progressive releases put out by Metal Mind Productions. Metal Mind has been a strong support to Soundscape across the years and we wanted to give them a big Kudos for all the great music that they have been setting free lately. This is the first of many similar themes. In the future we hope to give credit to other great progressive labels.

Next week we return to October of 1972 as we check out the history of progressive rock. Yes it's another history lesson and we will plummet you back to some well known and not so well known music of the day. We are also gearing up for another fun theme- Word play in progressive rock (alliteration, gibberish, and other forms of nonsense). Once again we call upon the listener collective to help us come up with examples. If you have a favorite wordplay song then please let us hear from you by emailing

Soundscape #184

Welcome fellow Soundscapers and surfers of the sonic realm. This week we check out 3 great progressive albums of 1972. Each of these has their own line of sight on what progressive is, and each takes a different turn into the then little known territory of progressive rock.

We also have our usual bevy of the new and not so new including tunes from 5Bridges, Beardfish, and Dead Heroes Club. All fantastic pieces of music that got missed in our perusal and spelunking of the aural adventures of 2009.

Next week we will be celebrating our 4th year on the air. It has been a long time but we have enjoyed it thoroughly. Soundscape is what it is due to you listeners. You keep coming back, you suggest good themes, and you give input to the strange array of themes that make Soundscape a one and only production. We thank you for your support and look forward to another year of crazy and wonderful prog rock.

Our theme next week will be "Wordplay in Prog". Wether it uses alliteration, palindromes, onomatopaei, nonsense, gibberish or anagrams, prog often uses wordplay as yet another way to dabble in new paints. Your suggestions for this show are greatly appreciated. If you have a good idea for a prog song that uses wordplay well you can write us at

Soundscape #185 Epic Fail

This show marks the 4 year birthday of Soundscape Radio. We made through the terrible 2s in which the computer just said "No" all the time, we even started the hooked on prog phonics reading section, but here we are at 4 years and another milestone has been reached. Soundscape killed another hard drive! This is actually not so bad because for once in my life I was prepared. I did not hem and haw and express my anger in an inappropriate fashion- rather proud of myself for that. Instead I simply rebuilt an awaiting machine, and moved to what appears to be a faster, more streamlined system.

In the midst of this rebirth, Suzi's computer got hit by one of the more evil adware infiltrations resulting in what looks to be another set of tech work that I do not want to do. We have been using the ESET software for our virus protection but thus far customer service responses, and even the way the system is put together (requiring user intervention instead of remote fixes) has left us pretty unsatisfied. If you are using a virus and adware control program that you think is superior please let us know.

So we abandoned the wordplay theme to a future Soundscape expedition and instead brought you all some great new and overlooked music. We still expect to return to the air in two weeks with this theme, so if you have examples of wordplay in prog, we would love to hear from you. You can reach us at

Soundscape #188 A Year with Soundscape

Hey folks,

We had a great time putting together this weeks epsiode of Soundscape. When I realized that there was probably at least one song for every month of the year, the theme was sealed. Nothing too fancy this time, just a great mix of music.

Next week we will pay homage to Frank Herbert's Dune (our first library theme in ages). There are so many prog bands that have made songs inspired by Dune that it should be a pretty fascinating soundscape to traverse. If you have any thoughts about what belongs in this theme please drop a line to

Soundscape #191 Black Sunday

"Pick up my feet and kick off my lethargy
Down to the gate with the old mood upon me
Get out and chase the small immortality
born in the minute of my next returning
Impatient feet tapping and cigarette burning
Homecoming one day too soon"- Jethro Tull

After the amazing 10 Revolutions festival, dragging our poor bodies from prog infested slumber, Suzi and I managed to put together a show of bombast and peace. We felt as if we were chasing the small imortality on this Easter Sunday and so we called it Black Sunday. With an epic intro from our good friends Jethro Tull we launched into a 4 hour flight and drift through new territory and hidden prog corners.

The History episode, once a monthly mainstay, is now a thing of the past. This is due to the fact that when we try to bunch them all together, we lose some of them in the mass of possibility that is presented to us. Instead we will now bring you a historical prog album along with some discussion every other week. This will afford us the opportunity to learn more about what we are playing for you and to hopefully give you a better feel for how great some of these archival wonders really are. Plus it gives us extra time to showcase the new stuff that is overflowing our progbox.

Next week we will be taking you into the strange world of avant-prog. Although many have their own definitions for this bizarre genre, we have our own and we will show you what that is next week. However if you have any avant requests please drop us a line and we will see what we can do to get yours into the mix. you can now write either of us or

In a few weeks time we will be doing a show that will feature favorite lyrics in prog. This means that it is time for you guys to start sending us your favorites now. Although some listen to prog only for the music, we want to call attention to the fantastic lyrical skills and talented tongues of our favorite bands. Your input is required for this to be the show that it can be, so please write us and let us know what you think.

Soundscape #194 Lyrical Escape

After a 2 week hiatus you would expect some substance, some verve, and some energy. Instead we chose to give you the same ol soundscape you have come to expect from the two of us.

The theme this week was: Best Lyric writers in progdom, and we did our best to represent everyone who voted. Nevertheless, this was definitely not a definitive answer. It is the answer of the moment, but, I dare say we did a fair job picking out the people to pay attention to, except for poor Keith Reid who did not get voted for until nearly the end of the show. We also got to hear 2 live tracks from therecent Mostly Autumn release, and Suzi's corner pays homage to the fantastic drum stylings of Gavin Harrison.

At this moment in passing time there is no planned theme for next weeks show. Once that changes and we have a north star to follow, we will let you all know. In the meantime if you have theme suggestions, or requests, send them to

Soundscape #195 Train Escape

This weeks theme was somewhat generated by last weeks theme. In the lyrical show we talked about Steven Wilson and his love of trains. I decided that seemed like a pretty romantic theme for this weeks show. The train has been a subject of multiple folk, blues and country songs. When the train arrived on the scene as a mode of public transportation it took the worl by storm and still holds an indelible space within our cultural mythology. This is shown very clearly when you look at the vast number of progressive songs that focus on the train. Prog rock is certainly more modern than those other genres of music and yet the songs keep coming. While the rhythm of the train is rarely in an odd time signature, it certainly feels like a sense of forward movement when portrayed in musical format. This train in particular will make stops to check out some new music, a siding where we check out the historical Il Balletto Di Bronzo, and a layover at Suzi's corner where we dive into the frustration of writers block.

Upcoming theme's: Great Prog Whores of the World, All in the Family, Australian Prog, The Steves of Prog, Trevor Horn, Billy Sherwood.

Soundscape #196

There is no getting around it, some artists are the prog equivalent of a nymphomaniac. They will play in any band that will have them, and they will play often. Their only cure is to produce amazing music. This week we will check out just a few of those amazing musicians.

In Suzi's corner, we pay homage to tha amazing TV show "Lost". As we enter the finale, we are all waiting with baited breath to see what answers turn up, and how the great mystery unfolds.

New music abounds as we check out new music from Porcelain, Raccomandata Ricevuta Ritorno, and Nick Magnus.

There are so many great themes we have in the works for this summer. Here are just a few that we have discussed: Australian Prog, All in the Family, The Billy Sherwood Show, The Steves of Prog, Sexualized Prog, and many many more. We hope you will join us for the journey. If you would like to suggest a theme, or have a request, send them to

Soundscape #197 All in the Family

When Suzi suggested we do a theme for prog bands with family members, I thought we might find a few but certainly not the landfall that emerged. It would seem that prog often runs in the blood of our faithful musical heroes. And although prog is generally seen as a male dominated genre, very often husband and wife teams turn up, even in the DJ world lol. We want to thank everyone for supporting this theme. Without your suggestions and collective wisdom, this might have been a very boring show. With your help, we think we spawned a rather enjoyable ride and we hope that you will enjoy our results.

Also in this weeks episode you get a chance to hear new music from Pineapple Thief, Declan Burke, Odyssice, and of course the new Spock's Beard.

We will be off the air for 2 weeks due to my running off to connect with classmates and faculty in good ole San Fran. We encourage you all to check out the bevy of great shows here at The Dividing Line, just make sure you return to us when we get back to the interwaves. Our next theme will be a wily one. Spawned in the DLBN chatroom brothel, the theme of sex in prog will surely be the most taboo subject we have tackled yet. We encourage your input in this theme and we look forward to another lively discussion. Send us a letter and let uis know what you believe to be the songs that connect prog music and sexuality.
