Back after a fun weekend at the Summer’s End festival. This week’s top ten albums is from one of the show’s longest-standing friends and supporters, James Hendry, with a great selection encompassing the poppier and more left-field sides of progressive music.

Martin is back too, of course, with his latest Progradar’s Picks, and I’m continuing with my catch up of 2017 releases, together with some old favourites.
