I was introduced to Charlie by a common acquaintance, Melani. She and I worked for the same firm in Boulder, NBI Inc. She worked in Accounting and I worked in engineering. We were on the company ski team together. Charlie was using an old 8-bit computer to do his band accounting on. I think it was a Commodore 64 or the like. It was getting a bit old and I had an IBM clone AT computer that I wasn't using any more so he bought it from me. He also gave me a pre-release copy of one of his albums. I remember a couple of songs on the album that I liked. "When you're cool the sun shines all the time" and "I like your shoes".
