Tuesday at 10:00 am
Linx Mix follows the musical journey of Mixmaster Linc from prog, art, and classic rock through electric blues, blues-rock, jazz-rock and beyond. Focusing on music that is melodically and compositionally more sophisticated, rather than simple or repetitive. The show brings a balance of familiar and unfamiliar tunes, so that the show can both be a learning experience, and can also bring the reverie of the classics from back in the day.

This week on Linx Mix, Patrick Lloyd will be challenging Mixmaster Linc to a Progressive Rock Showdown! The old mixmaster will be bringing prog rock classics from the 60's and 70's, and Patrick will be firing back with neo-prog and post-prog artists from the 21st century. Tune in to see who will win the duel!
Mixmaster Linc has been an obsessive music lover and collector since the mid-70s, as he bounced around the Midwest during his career (including all three of the states that Abraham Lincoln was born in), until retiring in Grain Valley in 2014, to be close to his grandchildren. His musical obsession began with prog rock and art rock, but then morphed over to electric blues, jazz-fusion and classic R&B. As time went by, all forms of jazz entered the realm, as have all forms of blues, rock, folk, bluegrass, zydeco, funk, reggae, and world music. His motto is “if it sounds good, do it”.
