In 1989, Teri Orr was the editor of the Park Record.  One of the toughest stories she had to cover during her eight-year career there, was the tragic death of the man who had been the only person she knew when she had first moved to Park City 10 years before.  In this week’s Park City Story, Orr recounts the day the music died.
