Great show! Thanks

I enjoy your show.

The Best, Period

Best look at the recording and music/record industry I’ve found. Every week as if quantized to a Pro Tools grid we get industry news, backstory, stats, and an über-interesting interview. It lives up to the “inner circle” moniker 100%.

Keep up the good stuff!

I find this podcast very informative and entertaining. I can always rely on this podcast for news about the music industry and insightful interviews from the professionals who work in it. Bobby has his finger on the music industry pulse. I can't wait for the next weekly episode! I highly recommend this podcast!
