Welcome to the Back Shelf. For the next 60 minutes, you’ll be hearing music not normally included in our broadcasts. This show features obscure artists, extreme metal, classic rock, jazz/rock fusion, and more. We hope you’ll enjoy what’s on the Back Shelf here at ProgRock.com – your ticket to the best progressive rock.
As the name implies, the show, “Prog-Scure: Obscure Bands on the Prog-Rock Scene (Past & Present),” focuses on artists that either time has forgotten or current artists who still remain shamefully undiscovered or ignored by the masses. Additionally, Zap may also play lesser-known tracks—”B” sides, rarities, bonus songs—from popular bands on the Prog-Rock scene, or Prog-Rock music released by artists not even normally associated with the genre itself.
Mark Burnell ‘s Wednesday afternoon slot, “This is Not a Prog Show’ will test the boundaries of music on the station, with prog being but one of a smorgasbord of genres for your aural delight.
British born but an NYC resident for more than 25 years, he ascribes to the motto ‘If music be the food of love, then bring me excess of it’.
