PROG & ROLL: Last night's new album's pre-release "radio party". A small review and the complete playlist.

Hello all :-)
  As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, last night’s Prog & Roll radio show was a special one. We decided to make something like a “radio party” in order to celebrate Ben Bell’s brand new album, that is going to be released today, under the name Patchwork Cacophony. (His personal project).
  So, last night we arranged something like a pre-release party presentation of his album ‘Five of Cups’, and for that reason we invited some other musicians who we know from Prog & Roll to participate. Some of them were not able to tune in, but there were many that responded and joined our chatbox. As far as I know, last night we had people listening from Greece, England, Ireland, France, Germany and Sweden. Among the people that were listening, we had also Benjamin Bell (of course), Mike Kershaw, Dave Curnow of Salander, Stephan Heppe of Gandalf’s Fist and Colin Tench of Corvus Stone (and other projects).
  In the playlist we included 4 songs out of Ben’s new album, plus one song from each of our guests. We played many songs from albums that have been released in 2016, but we also had a classic – so to say – part.
I really believe that last night’s Prog & Roll was an interesting and enjoyable one, and the people seemed to really appreciate the whole thing.
                    Here you can take a look at the whole playlist:
Part 1: PARADIGM SHIFT: The Shift / DIFFERENT LIGHT: Eternal Return (Parts 1-2) / PATCHWORK CACOPHONY: Choices / MIKE KERSHAW: Two Eyes / CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX: No Fun.
Part 2: PATCHWORK CACOPHONY: Every Day / COLIN TENCH PROJECT: Can’t See it any Other Way / GANDALF’S FIST: The Lamplighter (Parts XIV-XV) / PATCHWORK CACOPHONY: From a Spark.
Part 3: CARAVAN: Winter Wine / MANFRED MANN’S EARTH BAND: Solar Fire / PINK FLOYD: Have a Cigar / QUEEN: Brighton Rock.
Part 4: DRIFTING SUN: Gods / MARILLION: Living in Fear / SALANDER: And so to Sleep / PATCHWORK CACOPHONY: Brand New Day.
  I would like to say a very big thanks to all those who listened to our show last night and especially to Ben and Emily, Colin Tench, Dave Curnow, Mike Kershaw and Stephan Heppe. It was great to have you all in Prog & Roll once more!
Thank you all!  :-)
