Virtual Noise is Austin's only music broadcast focusing on Progressive Rock from around the world. Blending many progressive musical styles (typically with rock-and-roll) spanning the last 45+ years all the way to the present day in intricate, musically intense and experimental ways, Virtual Noise is a mind-bending experience!

Each Sunday at 5:30-7:00 pm (central time) Virtual Noise exposes the listener to the many forms of adventurous music collectively known as Progressive Rock (a.k.a. Prog). This includes a wide variety of sub-genres such as Symphonic prog, Proto-progNeo-progHeavy progPsychedelic (a.k.a. psych)/Space-rock, Eclectic progCanterburyAvant-prog/Rock-In-Opposition (a.k.a. RIO)Zeuhl, KrautrockChamber-progRock Progressivo Italiano (a.k.a. RPI). We also venture outward, playing music from related genres such as Crossover progJazz-Rock/Fusion, Progressive Metal, Experimental/Post-MetalArt-Rock/Prog-related, Progressive Folk-rock, Ambient/Progressive Electronic, Post-rock/Math-rock, and more including occasional excursions"outside the box" such as these categories we just made up: "New Directions" (possible futures of prog), "Nu-Jazz/Not-Jazz" (trad. jazz styles mixed with electronics), "Pop goes the Prog" (Is it pop or prog?), "WtF?" (head-turning, unclassifiable weirdness), "Local Yokels" (Austin artists of interest), and the beloved category "It's Prog Jim, just not as we know it." (prog influences where you might not expect).
