Description

The Amazing Wilf, cynic, mystic and occasional fool, takes you on a wonderful journey through the heady world of British and European progressive music. From the days of the sixties and seventies, when this stuff actually sold, through the New Wave Of British Progressive Rock in the mid-1980s, and bang up-to-date with the new blood. This music has never been more diverse or interesting, but in the competitive world of downloads and global marketing it's difficult for today's progressive acts to get the exposure they deserve and need to thrive. Wilf, therefore, concentrates on getting music by the small bands 'out there', while having a damn good time and a few laughs on the way.

Customer Reviews

Essential listening!!!!!

The review title says it all! Every episode has undiscovered gems waiting to leap out at you. There's old stuff and new music to discover, all from within the EU. Bands you've never heard of, but will be searching for after one listen - this show is costing me serious money with all the CDs I'm having to buy. For any lover of prog - in all it's forms - listen to this show

Prog Never Sounded So Good.

One of the rare breed of podcasts that always keeps you on your toes, the European Perspective has proved to be an utterly unique beast in the confusing forest of Progressive Rock radio. Your host is the Amazing Wilf, a man with a natural talent for finding new and exciting ways in which to present what has become to most, a tired and worn out genre. His shows usually centre around a loose theme which allows Wilf to unfold a unique narrative in the material he presents. One week it could be a program about the lost classics of the genre, the next could be about the cutting edge of Nu Prog. He's not afraid to challenge your preconceptions and in doing so, there is always something interesting to discover. The programme is held together with Wilf’s laconic and disarming wit between the songs which is mixed with a gentle confidence that only comes with knowing your subject matter inside out. I'm usually not a 5 star kind of guy but this show is highly recommended.

One of the best

One of the best prog rock podcasts around, with an eclectic mix of prog, a great introduction to new music and a DJ who isn't annoying (most of the time); he's just about found the balance between being informative without being dry and adding a touch of whimsical wit to proceedings.

A minor quibble something that should not put anyone off is that there is too much of it (is that really a problem) more than four hours of podcast with no chapters makes it a tad difficult to find particular bits should you ever want to revisit them.
