    A few days ago, my brother was in our local Whataburger and "Abacab" came on the radio while he was there.

    It's prog in unlikely places, not pop in unlikely places

    I was waiting for something like that.

    It's an experimental song, and that's enough to qualify it in this thread for me. No less "prog" than other mentions I've seen in here.

    Years ago we were in Applebee's, (where we normally never go) and 'The Lamb Lies Down' came on.

    That's crazy... I don't think my brain could process that if it ever happened to me.

    One time back when I was working in tech support, a customer put me on hold and their hold music was "Evidence of Autumn" by Genesis.

    He's probably referring to the song and not the whole Lamb album. That song is not that obscure. What would really get my attention is if they played "I know what I like" on the radio. Aside from maybe college or independent radio I've never heard it on the radio.

    Dude, I didn’t think he meant the whole album. It’s still not a song I’ve ever heard on the radio anywhere in the past 20 years.

    What??!!

    Okay, that blows away all the other selections I've ever heard, to my ears! Incredible. (happens to be probably my favorite 5 minute song ever written)

    It pretty much made my day when it happened. Such a great song...

    I don't know if they had their music-on-hold piped into satellite radio or something else, but that was the only time I've ever encountered something like that when being put on hold.

    I can't imagine any of the Satellite or Muzak stations ever playing 'Evidence of Autumn', but who knows. As a b-side, only available on box sets, it's not even on iTunes. Maybe a preprogrammed selection?

    I've heard some pretty deep cuts on satellite radio. My wife heard Johnny Winter's "Fast Life Rider" the other day and I was absolutely shocked when she told me. That is one of the last tracks from his catalog that I would ever expect. And ANY JW track is a rarity to hear.

    Since we seem to be drifting into “unexpected deep cuts that aren’t necessarily prog” territory, there was this place (and it may have been the same thrift store where I heard Caravan’s “Love to Love You”) where I heard Kiki Dee’s “The Day Will Come Between Sunday and Monday”—a track off of her Motown album that pre-dates her association with Elton John—multiple times. I know it technically was a “hit,” but not a very big one, and I certainly have not heard it on the radio (mind you, I was in diapers in 1970).

    There’s also the laundromat that played Boz Scaggs’ “What Can I Say.” Granted, that did hit the top 10...in the UK! I don’t think it even cracked the top 40 here! They played some other “deep cuts” but songs that were actual hits, just which seem to be forgotten by “classic rock” playlists (Carole King’s “Nightingale,” for example).

    I haven't been to Trader Joe's in a while but the local one seemed to be using a satellite service playing cuts by bands like Spirit and Savoy Brown.

    I'm not sure this counts but I saw a guy at the Genesis concert wearing a Fish t shirt.

    I ran into Fish tapping a beer at Shades Of Green, a pub near Irving Plaza in NYC. Since it was a pub and it was Fish,would it be considered "unlikely"?

    Well, if this was 1977 and right after GFTO was released then it probaly wouldn't be a big deal. However, that's one you really don't hear anymore and I personally don't think I've ever even heard it on classic rock radio. I would say it is one of their best shorter tracks though.

    Don't know if this has been mentioned in these 12 pages....But Meet the Richardson's is a Brit mockumentary show featuring comedians Jon Richardson & his wife. The entire soundtrack is Jethro Tull!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meet_the_Richardsons

    I found the episodes in YouTube.

    Wikipedia says it's a mockumentary, not a reality show. Sorry to burst your bubble.
