On Borrowing Music: And getting Mom & Dad to take you off the Baha'i children list

Erik Satie
My assignment to myself after reading Darrell's article on the Bosch Music Industry Weekend and the run-down of attendees there was to try to familiarize myself with those on his list I hadn't already heard of. Like Tyler Thompson. So I Googled the name and came up with an abtruse but interesting musical reference to Tyler. -gw
