In a previous posting, the author of this blog reported that the hold music for the Texas Department of Health and Human Services consisted of eight bars of a looping saxophone solo with questionable accompaniment. On further repeated exposure, it was realized that the hold music actually consists of 32 measures, featuring the same eight-measure melodic line played identically three times running, then a fourth eight-measure melodic line with a slightly different interlude completing the final two measures. Additionally, we would like to supply the following information: the accompanying instruments for this saxophone are as follows: keyboard, electronically-generated percussion and what may be an actual guitar.

We regret this error and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
