The Progzilla Files Episode 01 | The Fripp Sessions (8 March 2015)

It was two Phils who turned me on to King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp: Phil Codd at college who first played Another Green World by Brian Eno, featuring two of the most coruscating guitar solos by anyone, and former work collegue Phil Clarke who gave me a copy of The Concise King Crimson  in about 1989. Blondie and Bowie should be in any sane person’s music collection of course, and both Talking Heads and David Sylvian either did release or has been releasing fascinating music for many years. I had to seek out The Roches for this broadcast.
