I will be joining Dan Reed for the 7th Annual High’s in the 70’s Prog Rock Marathon on WXPN this coming Saturday January 5. This year we are doing 12 hours of prog with Echoes NPR host John Diliberto and Star’s End host Chuck van Zyl. Joining us this year will be author Dave Thompson, who will bring his own collection of prog oddities. Plenty of classics and my personal assortment of vinyl near-cult classics like Blodwyn Pig, Tasavallen Presidente, Audience, Andy Pratt and Matching Mole.
What makes for near cult status in prog?
