Dear Kristin [Ostberg]:

Loved the piece on the Checkerboard Lounge ["Got Them They-Don't-Play-'em-Like-They-Used-To Blues," July 21]! I'm hoping to do a TV story on the Checkerboard one of these days myself. I wanted to correct an apparent oversight in your well-researched story: On the reference to bluesman Robert Johnson, the author is Peter Guralnick, not Robert. Guralnick is one of my favorite authors, and as you probably know, has written some highly authoritative work on American music.

Thank you for catching the error.
