    ^^ It was prog by early 80s standards.

    They do say that excess is a measure of proginess, but I draw the line at cowbell.

    Not so sure about that...

    1983 saw the release of: Art Zoyd - Les Espaces Inqueits, Eskaton - Fiction, Cartoon - Music From Left Field, IQ - Tales From the Lush Attic, Von Zamla - 1983, Von Zamla - No Makeup!, Bacamarte - Sepois Do Fim...

    If one ventures into the avant-prog realm, the 80's were pretty productive.

    The early/ mid 80s were a high point of RIO and related progressive rock.

    I made my first Wayside order in early 1983. I got Art Zoyd: Génération Sans Futur, Etron Fou Leloublan: Les Poumons Gonflés, Fred Frith/Bob Ostertag/Phil Minton: Voice of America, Mnemonists: Biota, and a Rolling Stones bootleg.

    In the past I've heard parts of both "firth of fifth" and "heart of the sunrise" as interlude music on NPR.

    Last year they used the intro to Camel's "Down On The Farm" in a story about farming. I wonder how many people other than me noticed.

    It doesn't surprise me. NPR tends to be more intellectual than other US news outlets. One benefit of being listener supported, not a corporate entity.

    On the Chicago NPR station, I guess someone who works on the 2 PM show is a Weather Report fan as I've heard their stuff a couple times.

    NPRs music outros if that’s what you can call them usually have something to do with the subject that they are discussing. I remember a segment on unexpected medical bills when they played part of genesis entangled.

    Sounds like how on the talk shows, where the band would sometimes play a song that somehow related to the guest as they walked out. I remember one time when Susan Sarandon was on The Tonight Show, the band played Time Warp, and as she sat down, she looked over at the band and "put her hands on her hips, and pulled her knees in tight" (or something like that, I'm probably remembering the moves wrong, but it was clear she recognized the song and acknowledged it).

    Paul Shaffer was fond of doing that kind of stuff. One time, Letterman had a guy named Pharaoh something, I think he was a comedian, so Paul and the band played The Creator Has A Master Plan by Pharoah Sanders. Another time it was someone whose first name was Patrice, so they played Patrice Rushen's Forget-Me-Not, which it took the guest a second to realize why they played THAT song. I also remember one where Paul and the band played Tin Soldier by The Small Faces, but I forget what the reasoning was, though I'm sure that was another allusion to the guest or their new movie or whatever. And so on.

    This is true but the studio album NO MAKE UP was released in 1983.

    Went to my local Agway yesterday (pet supplies, agriculture supplies, livestock feed, farm supplies) and was surprised to hear 'Pigs (Three Different Ones)' from Pink Floyd.
    But then again, it was Agway ...

    Not music itself, but music related -- was at a brewery in the central valley a few weeks ago watching my friend play some surf rock with his new project, and a person in their early 20s wearing a Yes tshirt was talking to my friend after and bought a record from him even.

    ^ I remember reading in a Rock Magazine back in the very late 70s, the writer asked Chester Thompson about the next (at that time) Genesis album. Finally, after confirming that they were working on one, he asked Chester if he knew what it would be called. Chester told him, "Surf's Up!"

    Okay, maybe a bit of a stretch, I'm watching an episode of The X-files and a high school kid is wearing a Syd Barrett T-shirt. Maybe psych instead of prog, but still.

    EDIT: Apparently the kid is a main character of the story and is now listening to Syd.
