Hi all! As I emerge from my Turkey coma, I’m happy to share this episode which features my good friend Raffaella Berry! Raffaella, a native Italian, is a noted blogger (, an expert on progressive music of the past, and one of the modern progressive rock scene’s biggest supporters.

For this show, Raffaella brought some of her favorite Italian progressive music from all through the ages. To supplement this, Mike has chimed in with a few choice cuts and I’ve sprinkled a few in as well.

This episode is an education for all of us – particularly your humble narrator, who is far from an Italian prog or RPI expert! If nothing else, laugh as I struggle to pronounce, and ultimately butcher, famous Italian band names!

My Canterbury thing started when I was in 8th grade in 1969. My fetish for Italian Prog began a few years later when I got the first Banco import in 1973. Once I found PFM, it was an all out love fest!

This is great!!!! You guys know this is my favorite genre!!


Glad you dig, Dan! Always pegged you more as a Canterbury guy! Maybe that'll be our next theme show ... though I quite like the idea of doing French or even Scandinavian.
