The Amazing Wilf, cynic, mystic and occasional fool, takes you on a wonderful journey through the heady world of British and European progressive music. From the days of the sixties and seventies, when this stuff actually sold, through the New Wave Of British Progressive Rock in the mid-1980s, and bang up-to-date with the new blood. This music has never been more diverse or interesting, but in the competitive world of downloads and global marketing it's difficult for today's progressive acts to get the exposure they deserve and need to thrive. Wilf, therefore, concentrates on getting music by the small bands 'out there', while having a damn good time and a few laughs on the way.

Great music you may not know

I love the podcasts from the Dividing Line. I download these 2-3 hours shows on my phone and get to listen to many prog favorites. But what I like the most is discovering bands I have never heard of.

If you thing prog died years ago, listen to any of these shows and you will discover prog is alive and well.

Check out the Dividing Line website for many other great shows with podcasts. They have become my favorite online listening.
