Since 2004 Virtual Noise has been Austin's only music broadcast focusing on Progressive Rock Blending many progressive musical styles (as well as related genres like jazz-fusion & art-rock) from around the world spanning the last 50+ years all the way to the present day in intricate, musically intense and experimental ways, Virtual Noise is a mind-bending experience!

VIrtual Noise Hosts: In January 2004, Virtual Noise began it's weekly broadcast with founding host "The Progressive Cowboy" with a mission to broadcast lesser-known music from the various sub-genres of "progressive rock".  In 2008, "The Perfessor" (a.k.a. "Professor Ted"), came on board as co-host, adding his "prog" influences new discoveries.  In late 2018, The Progressive Cowboy decided to take a break and is currently on hiatus.  In 2019, "Baron Mind" filled the co-host vacancy bringing yet another dimension to further expand the palette of Virtual Noise.

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).
