Last night's PROG & ROLL : Top-5 and playlist...

   Last night GFreedom Team presented another Prog & Roll radio show, and today I'm going to write here a few things about it.
   We started our program with some electronic sounds, which to be honest I don't think they were
appreciated by our listeners. After that, we changed the music style and we played songs in the style we usually play in our show. In the meantime more people were logging slowly slowly, and they created a nice warm atmosphere once more. This time the conversations in the chatbox were more serious, and we didn't have so much fun like other times. But because of this I believe everybody was more cool, and the people seemed to grade the songs more serious. That's the impression I had at least...
   In our playlist we had 19 songs in total, and from many different kinds of music. We had Electronic, Neo-Prog, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Classic Progressice Rock, Prog Folk etc...
Also last night we had our music contest once more. We played a cover verion of Pink Floyd's song 'In the Flesh', and we were asking the name of the cover band. The right answer was 'Dream Theater' and one of our listeners found it rather fast I must say.
   Once more we played our little 'game' by asking our audience to grade the songs we play, and according to their grades here's last night's Top-5 songs:

1. CAMEL: Eyes of Ireland
2. STRAWBS: Witchwood
3. BLACK SABBATH: Megalomania
4. FAIRPORT CONVENTION: Who knows where time goes?
5. ELOY: Poseidon's Creation (Live)

From these 5 songs only the first two achieved to gather the average points thar are needed in order to enter the list with the songs that will compete for 'The Song of the month'. Black Sabbath's song was very close to this number, so we will maybe use it in case we don't have too many songs for the final stage of the competition.
  And here you can see the whole playlist from last night's Prog & Roll:

J.M.JARRE: Equinox IV / KRAFTWERK: Spacelab / TANGERINE DREAM: Cloudburst Flight / GALAHAD: Guardian Angel / CONTROTEMPO: Guerra / AMAGRAMA: Recluso Artista / MARILLION: Assassin / KANSAS: On the Other Side / DREAM THEATER: In the Flesh -(Music Contest) /  ELOY: Poseidon’s Creation (Live) / URIAH HEEP: Traveller in Time / BLACK SABBATH: Megalomania / CAMEL : Eyes of Ireland / VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR: Wondering / STRAWBS: Witchwood / STEELEYE SPAN: Gone to America / FAIRPORT CONVENTION: Who knows where the Time goes? / RENAISSANCE: Closer than Yesterday / SUPERTRAMP: Lord is it mine.

Once more I want to thank you all for logging in, listening and participating to our show.
Special thanks to 'Larne' who joined us for first time, and if I got it right in the same time he was doing his own radio show while listening to ours. Hard combination...
That's all for now folks!
Have a great week! :)
