What is this BayProg?

BayProg is the original regional progressive rock web site, first appearing in early 1999.

The goals of BayProg are, roughly:

The BayProg web site has evolved to a pretty hefty size; it's now about 25 pages worth of good stuff.  And the BayProg email list has a little over 150 members.

I want to make BayProg as good as it can be, so please send me any news, updates, additions, ideas or corrections. 

This site is now written using XHTML1.0 Strict to be compatible with mobile wireless browsing devices and the newer browser standards.  As a side effect, the display will be readable but less charming in ancient browsers (like Netscape Navigator 4.0 for instance).  Such is life.  As always, please tell me if anything comes out badly.
