Last night the first Prog & Roll of the 5th season took place, as I have announced in a previous post, a few days ago.
I dare say that it was a very good and fun show, and as it seemed the people enjoy it a lot.
We had some surprises for our listeners, with the most important one being the presence and participation of the English musician Benjamin Bell and his wife's Emily to the show. They travelled from England to Athens for a short holiday, and they joined our show as co-hosts. Further that that, Ben prepared a small music trivia game, which we played with our listeners, and the 2-3 winners will take as a prize Ben's new CD, that is going to be released in October.
I was very happy to see that we had a rather big crowd listening, most of them our old and faithful listeners, but also some new ones as well.
We have some good – I hope – plans for this new season, but I’m not going to reveal anything yet. You’ll have to wait a little bit for that.
At this point I would like to thank Ben and Emily for coming to Athens, so we could meet and have this show together. I think we had some great time! Also, a very big thanks to all of you who tuned in last night. Be sure that we will try to make Prog & Roll even better and more enjoyable than already is.
