THE PROG MILL
Since December 2011 Shaun has been presenting the popular weekly progressive rock show THE PROG MILL. The show started on Stafford Radio, broadcasting from the iconic Broad Eye Windmill in Stafford, the station re-branded in 2015 as Windmill Radio. The show quickly built up a large worldwide online audience. In April 2016 Windmill Radio closed, so a new home for The Prog Mill was needed. After considering several offers from different radio stations, The Prog Mill moved to its new home at PROGZILLA RADIO. The UK's largest dedicated progressive rock radio station. The Prog Mill has kept its traditional time slot of 10pm to midnight (UK time) on Sunday nights, and can be heard online at www.progzilla.com or via the tune-in app (search for Progzilla Radio). A podcast of the show is available to listen to any time within a couple of days of the original broadcast (via the Progzilla website). It is also repeated twice on Tuesdays at 0300-0500 UK time (for listeners in North America) and again at 2300-0100 UK time, and again on Saturdays between 1800-2000 UK time. The Prog Mill plays a mix of classic and new symphonic and melodic progressive rock, and helps a lot of new artists and bands, trying to make their way in the competitive world of music, to gain more popularity through airplay on the show.
