Today's conversation is with yet another audio friend, one I met when he joined the masthead
of Enjoy the Music.com. Today you'll meet Dr. Michael R. Bump, a musician, composer, and Professor of Music for approaching forty years.
And he is an audio equipment
reviewer for Enjoy the Music.com too! You can see
his bio at this link. Think about what his experience as a musician, composer, and teacher may bring to the skill sets of a reviewer!
