Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for this episode of Big Blend Radio's Toast to The Arts Show with acclaimed TV writer/producer Lee Aronsohn who discusses his first feature film, 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE.

Prior to moving to Los Angeles in 1975, Aronsohn attended the University of Colorado, where he was introduced to the music of Magic Music, one of the most fondly- remembered bands of the Boulder revolution. 40 years later, the songs he had heard Magic Music play on the campus quad continued to echo in his head, but there was no record to listen to, no CD, or no MP3s. 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE chronicles how Aronsohn tracked down the original band members four decades later to tell their story. More importantly, he makes a dream come true for himself, fellow fans, and the band, by bringing them all back to Boulder for a sold-out reunion concert that preserves their legacy for posterity. As a television writer, composer, and producer, Aronsohn wrote for some of the most successful and influential prime-time comedies of the modern era including The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and Murphy Brown.
