Welcome to PROG.FM!

PROG.FM plays a broad spectrum of progressive styles and artists, from classic prog to prog metal, fusion, neo-prog, gothic/symphonic metal, space rock, and electronic. You'll find the usual core aritsts such as Rush, Genesis, ELP, Yes, Kansas, Marillion, and PFM here, but PROG.FM also showcases lesser-known and "undiscovered" prog artists as well.

We encourage artists to submit their work to our artist submission service. If you're a progressive rock artist who wants to be heard by a worldwide audience, send us your best and we will play it! See our web site for details.

We broadcast direct from our servers in several different formats (mp3, ogg, aac+) and bit rates (128, 96, 48, 32) and we relay on Live365 in mp3PRO. Check our web site (COMING SOON) for more information.

History

I started playing the clarinet in grammar school, but didn't really appreciate music and sound until 8th grade when I was exposed to the synthesizer. I bought my first synth, a Korg Poly 800 in 1984 and as a teenager, began dabbling in electronic music. It was the sound that fascinated me, and I basically learned the music part by ear, having already had several years of music education in school.

Around the same time I started listening to WFMU, a free-form radio station formerly run by Upsala College. Richard Ginsburg's Synthetic Pleasure had me glued to the radio every Monday evening. Synthetic Pleasure introduced me to Tangerine Dream, Yanni, Klaus Schulze and many others.

A few years later, on a whim, I bought a vinyl record by a Hungarian band named Solaris, which opened the floodgates and opened my ears to progressive rock forever. Combined with my interest in Rush, Yes, Genesis, Kansas and Pink Floyd, I became forever addicted to electronic and progressive music.
