Why Do People Hate Prog Rock? Yes Is the Answer, Maybe.

Hear the Podcast of Echoes with Yes Is The Answer Editors Marc Weingarten & Tyson Cornell.

Marc Weingarten and Tyson Cornell are Progressive Rock fans and they’ve edited a collection of personal essays about the genre called Yes is the Answer and Other Prog Rock Tales. Contributors such as novelist Rick Moody and music critic Jim DeRogatis write about their mixed feelings about Progressive Rock. We’ll talk with Weingarten and Cornell about the mixture of love and embarrassment so many writers feel for the genre.  Hear them talk about it on the Echoes Podcast.
