Thread: Nickie's Niches on Progrock.com

  1. #1

    Nickie's Niches on Progrock.com

    I started doing little mini-reviews for purchases I'd made in Bandcamp during their "Bandcamp Fridays," last year, and was approached by Chuck Simons at Progrock.com to contribute to his "Top 10," show monthly, on Tuesday, 8AM - 10AM PST. This installment will air today, 1 March.

    I usually I review 6-10 artists in progressive as well as other genres that have caught my ear on the Tuesday preceding Bandcamp Friday.

    Chuck reads the mini-reviews I’ve prepared and then plays a tune I’ve selected as a favourite, or indicative of what one might expect in listening to the rest of the release. These reviews are also posted on the artist’s bandcamp page.

    There will a podcast available on progrock afterwards, if it’s at an inconvenient time for a live listen. If you'd like to come along to the live chat that day, you can PM me here and I will send you an invite.

    Bandcamp Fridays is when they waive their fees for purchases the first Friday of each month, (at least for 4 more months). I usually I review 6-10 artists in progressive as well as other genres that have caught my ear on the Tuesday preceding Bandcamp Friday.
