This episode I have the opportunity to sit with a great guest and new friend, Jeff Robbins. We get into quite a bit of it all, from beginnings of his music career as a major label artist, to transitioning to a family man, to creating his own path through entrepreneurship, to getting back into making music. It's a long one, but that's a lot to get through. Plus we tackle one of rocks greatest albums of all time, Pixies "Surfer Rosa". Dig the new theme song for Vinyl & Vision, by Jeff...

With that band being one of the best synth bands in the city it was only fitting to have Brendan sit down with one of the greatest synth records of all time, Freedom of Choice.
