Robert Ertel was the bar manager at the Turret around the 1979-1980 years. He was also the editior and the main creative force behind HaveYouHeard, GaeGala 's newsletter at the time.

He trained originally to be a chef. He worked at Kelly's Stereo on Barrington Street. I remember he got mugged while making the night deposit for the Turret and was quite badly hurt in the process. He had two enormous cats, really obese, called Boris and Natashia who he tried very hard to help them lose weight, but they were too far gone for that.

Bo moved to Toronto around 1980.
