What is Power of Prog


If the quality of music shows you listen to matter, then check out my shows on House of Prog every Tuesday & Friday when I spin some of the best new vinyl. Yes vinyl! Because music should flow not be compressed.

Attention Bands... Do you have a vinyl release and want to be featured and played on my shows?

Then drop me a line.
