Dave Watkins


Dave is based in the south west of England and has been involved with radio since 2010. First of all, with a local community station, hosting various shows including an award winning Blues show. He also ran a Prog show for a while, The Big House. After leaving the station in 2016, he launched a Traditional Country show, which has grown every week and is now heard by thousands every week. Dave has a wide ranging list of musical loves and the urge to get a Prog show back on air has been nagging for a while! He could possibly be the only radio broadcaster in the world to host a Country and a Prog show at the same time!

The Prog Bus will have a new, two hour episode aired every two weeks. The aim will be to play all kinds of Melodic and Symphonic Progressive music. Nothing too heavy, nothing too clever, all accessible, so those who may not always listen to Prog, can tune in and enjoy the sounds. Prog For All! Dave is not a Prog encyclopaedia so just wants to explore the genre alongside the listeners. He also aims to be in the chat room for every new edition and hopes lots of you can join in.
