Meet Bob Milne, Musical Genius

Our friends at Radiolab posted an amazing story last week about Bob Milne, a pianist from Michigan who has amazing musical powers. Bob, a renowned ragtime player, can carry on a full conversation while performing, something that neurologists say shouldn't be possible. The story gets really spectacular when the neurologists decide to test Bob's abilities clinically, pitting his skills against a famous conductor.

The story is very well produced, putting you into Bob's head in a way that makes you rethink how you listen to music. Definitely worth a listen.
