Presented by Mr Jerry Ewing, the editor and founder of PROG magazine and the host of the annual Progressive Music Awards.

The magazine just reached 100 editions, so we thought it’s high time we asked Jerry to give us a golden hour of his top Kscope tracks, his memories of hearing them for the first time, their post-rock and psychedelic qualities, how they fit into the Universe that he’s created at Prog - and that time we were dancing to Danny Cavanagh’s twelve inchers…

Podcast 108 – Mansun 'Six' interview with Paul Draper

The “stupidest album ever released by a pop group” according to chart-topping singer-songwriter Paul Draper, is his own sophomore effort ‘Six’ from his band Mansun. Hear Paul’s memories  of a sprawling literate-prog meisterwerk  paid for by The Beatles’ label; The Doctor from Doctor Who, the world’s leading glass orchestra, and Eric Clapton’s beans on toast. Does he like it, 21 years on? “It’s too early to say”, apparently…

You'll hear music from 'Six', (4-disc book-set OUT NOW) plus forthcoming BRAND NEW releases spun herein from Gong, Daniel Tompkins (from TesseracT) and a track from the new album from Porcupine Tree’s Colin Edwin – i.e. O.R.k.
