The Big Four killed my baby

European regulators have approved the proposed merger between Sony Music and BMG. This unholy corporate megalliance will create the not-so-creatively titled Sony BMG. And according to this Reuters report, the fallout "will include widespread job cuts." We were wondering, naturally, what effect this might have on Sony and BMG reps in the Chicago area ... and then further wondered if we didn't recall BMG moving their Chicago regional office to the Minneapolis area sometime not too long ago. (To be closer to Best Buy's HQ, you see.) Perhaps one of our loyal readers might jog our memories?
