Prog & Roll radio show (12/6/16) with special guests. A small "review" & the complete playlist.



  Hello all!
  Last night, one more Prog & Roll radio show was online as usual. This time we had a special show prepared, as I had announced in the previous days. During the 2 hours of the  show we made a small “presentation” on the triple concept album The Clockwork Fable, recorded by Gandalf’s Fist. 
Furthermore, we played the most interesting parts of the interview we took from Stefan Hepe, the band’s drummer, who joined our chat box as our special guest. We did a music quiz as well, in which we gave as prizes to the winners 2 download codes in order to be able to download the album in its complete form, together with the covers, the booklet etc. The download codes were offered by the members of Gandalf’s Fist and we would like to thank them for that!
  We had many people in our chat-box once more, and many more who were just listening without participating, from many countries. As far as I know, we had listeners from France, England, Germany, Greece, Mexico, Canada and Australia! And that is something I want to specially mention! I’m very proud to say that since last night we can say that Prog & Roll during the years it is active it had listeners from the 6 out of the 7 continents of the world! The only continents were missing were Australia and South America, but since last night there is only one left. So, during these 4 years, we had listeners from Europe, Africa, Asia, North America, Australia and even Antarctica! (Although Antarctica was a special occasion). The only one that is still missing is South America.
As for the songs we played, you can see them here:
Part 1: PARADIGM SHIFT: The Shift / THE FLOWER KINGS: Fireghost / Interview with Stefan Hepe Pt.1 / GANDALF’S FIST: The Traveller & the Lighter (Album’s intro) / GANDALF’S FIST: Shadowborn.
Part 2: GAZPACHO: The Cage / Interview with Stefan Hepe Pt.2 / GANDALF’S FIST: Eve’s Song / LIFE LINE PROJECT: Moment / CICCADA: She Went for Love.
Part 3:  ANNIE HASLAM: Moonlight Shadow - Live (Music quiz) / BIG BIG TRAIN: Telling the Bees / Interview with Stefan Hepe Pt.3 / GANDALF’S FIST: The Lamplighter (Parts XIV – XV) / MOSTLY AUTUMN: The Library.
Part 4:  BLOOD CEREMONY: Loreley / COSMOS: Skygarden / Interview with Stefan Hepe Pt.4 / GANDALF’S FIST: The Lamplighter (Parts IX – XIII).
I would like to say a very big thanks to all those who tuned in last night, hoping you enjoyed the music and the show in general. A special thanks to Stefan Hepe, and to the musicians who are members of the small musician’s community in our chat-box, like Mike Kershaw and Benjamin Bell for example. Prog & Roll will have a week’s break on the 19th of June, and it will be back on the 26th of June.
Till then, take care!
Thank you!
