In the meantime, here’s some more details about the show:
"And now for something completely different."
It’s a warm welcome to Dr. Brad Stone - the JazzWeek Programmer of the Year 2015, who's also here every month to present his brand new show on SoulandJazz.com - Passport to Prog - one hour of progressive rock, progressive jazz, jazz-rock fusion, electronic and experimental music with a particular emphasis on new releases by current artists/bands plus the occasional visit back to the classic era of prog along with material from in between.
In Brad's own words: "The ‘Passport’ part of the title is a nod to my old, dear friend, Jim Snowden, whose Passport Jazz label brought us a host of great jazz-rock albums back in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Sadly, Jim passed away earlier in 2016. Just a couple of months before he passed, we had discussed the need for a show of this nature, as an outlet for all the great progressive music being produced and released today, and had planned on putting something together.
When I first began radio back in 1978, at the legendary underground station WQAX-FM in Bloomington, IN, my program was very similar to this, in terms of the types of music that I featured. So, I am coming full circle! I am eternally grateful to my friends Don Donald Lupo (for getting me started in radio) and Neil Sharrow (the WQAX 'Minister of Communication', for his strong encouragement and mentorship). My shows 'Electronic Meditations' (1984-85, KUCI-FM, Irvine, CA) and 'Silicon Sensations' (1986-97, KSJS-FM, San Jose, CA) featured some of this music, along with the occasional progressive rock special from time to time.
There’s so much great music out there that just doesn’t get the exposure it deserves. I hope that this new program will help a bit in that regard."
