My special guest this week is none other than Rob Reed—the prolific UK composer and multi-instrumentalist who has brought you great Progressive Rock through his numerous bands (including Cyan, ChimpanA, Magenta, Kiama, and Kompendium) and his own Mike Oldfield-inspired Sanctuary projects! I spoke with Rob about numerous interesting topics, including the new Magenta album, the state of the music industry, and much more. Hear part of that conversation and lots of great music in which Rob has had a hand, including one from the new Magenta album!
