Friday Night Progressive plays the best Independent Progressive Rock, Instrumental and Fusion music on the Internet. FNP is in its 7th year in broadcast- ing, doubling the album list from 33 to well over 60 albums in new independent ar- tists in one year!
FNP plays only the best in progressively-oriented music, leaning more to- wards more complex musical compositions and the virtuosic end of the per- formance spectrum. The FNP playlist generally avoids songs with an overtly pop-music structure. Progressive music is, at its heart, music for the sake of art; any commercial considerations in its presentation are incidental and subordinate to concerns of artistic integrity.

The IPA is a testament of good will and a gesture in recognition of accom- plishment above and beyond the realm of excellence. It is perceived as a magical award.
