PROG & ROLL radio show: A 2014 summary...


Here I am on the last day of 2014, in order to write down a few stats for this year.
During this year we did 36 radio shows in total, on which we played songs from 290 different bands. As for the songs, they were 725.
 I believe we covered a wide variety of music genres, as we played songs from Progressive Rock, Progressive Metal, Classic Rock, Psychedelia, Folk Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Neo Prog etc.
 Further than that, during the year we were happy and honored to have among our listeners members from many bands, with whom we chated, had fun, learn about their plans etc. A few names that I can recall now are: Sonja Kristina (Curved Air), Anton Roolaart, Stephan Desbienes (The D Project), Stuart Nicholson (Galahad), Jargon/Stellios Pavlou/George Kyriakidis (Verbal Delirium), and both members from Salander. (Dave Smith & Dave Curnow). 
 As for the bands we played throughout the year, these are the 15 bands or artists we played the most:
1.CURVED AIR 2.CAMEL 3.GENESIS 4.PINK FLOYD 5.DAVID BOWIE 6.RUSH 7.JETHRO TULL 8.ELOY 9.GALAHAD 10.PORCUPINE TREE 11.PROCOL HARUM 12.CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX 113.THE D PROJECT 14.BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST 15.MARILLION.
 I want to thank all of you who supported our show during this year. Your love and support is the most important thing, and it's giving us strengh to carry on. We always try to improve our show in order to make it more interesting and enjoyable. I also want to thank all those musicians I mentioned above who joined our show, and some of them more than once.
Prog & Roll will be with you again on the first Sunday of 2015 at 20.00 UK time.
Till then, take care and Happy New Year!
