PROG & ROLL radio show on 17/1/2016. A "review" & the complete playlist.

Hello all! :-)
Om last night's Prog & Roll radio show, we announced our Top-10 albums list for 2015, and made a - let's say - tribute to David Bowie in 2 parts. 
During the 1st part we played some of his songs, covered by artists or bands from different music styles and genres. With that, we wanted to point out how influencial Bowie has been during his long career.
After that, during the 2nd extended part, we presented our Top-10 albums of 2015, and we finished the show with the 3rd part,including another small tribute to D.Bowie. This tribute was about the musicians who played a rather important role in his life. Well, at least some of them!
We had many people listening, and the chatbox was on fire once more. We were also really glad to have with us Colin Trench by Corvus Stone, together with Sonja Mota who is the band's covers designer. (If I'm not mistaken). We also had a friend of theirs Angelo, who used to be a collaborator or administrator (or both) in 'Prog Archives'. We also had on the chatbox Dave Curnow of Salander, and Benjamin Bell of Fusion Orchestra 2 and Patchwork Cacophony. 
 There were some interesting conversations going on, but most of the times we were having fun with each other.
 I must say that I'm very pleased with last night's show, and I believe most of the people really enjoyed it. Well, that's enough for me! :)
