It appears I’m not the only one interested in getting my favorite music more attention. The Norwegian business daily Dagens Næringsliv ran an article today, written by Norwegian journalist and musician Ole Martin Ihle, commenting on how commercially-minded music is generally disregarded in music history. I’d post a link, but it appears to be a paper-only piece so far.
Ole Martin and I are definitely on the same page here, and he was kind enough to mention my book and this website in the final paragraph of the article. This is a labor of love for me, and I’m thrilled that other people also find value in my work.
Also, it appears that several sites have posted links to this site today, Blue Desert and The Westcoast/AOR Music Site among them. Thanks, you guys!

Good luck with the book and this blog, I will follow your work!
Thanks, Bengt! Appreciate it.
