Long-time Exposé sponsor and all-around supporter of progressive rock Jerry Lucky is now taking his Files to the airwaves (in a metaphorical sort of way, since it's a stream/podcast). In these days of being bombarded with too much music to listen to in the hours of the day, we like having new ways to discover great music

From Jerry's email announcement:
It has always been my dream to at some point evolve The Progressive Rock Files into a radio show. Well one of the great things about taking early retirement is that suddenly you find yourself with the time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. So I approached the folks at The Dividing Line Broadcast Network with the idea and they were kind enough to say yes.
So now The Progressive Rock Files Radio Show is available for streaming or downloadable podcast. The focus of the show will be on new, independent and unsigned acts, but within the one-hour time frame I’ve allotted for myself, I hope to offer up a little of everything. My goal is to take my website efforts and translate them into audio form thereby providing additional exposure for the many progressive artists who send their musical efforts my way. I’m always on the lookout for new music... feel free to get in touch if you have something to send my way. I hope you can join me.
