First project when joining CBS Records was to assist Mike Stewart in the change over from April-Blackwood Music
into CBS SONGS. Photo is from corp.meetings in the Nashville offices(circa early 80's) that were run by the famous
Charlie Monk. This great team of writers, whom all turned out to be huge hit writers, major recording artists and
one very successful producer and record exec. My time at CBS Songs was so memorable working with Nashville,
NY and LA...big hits and big friendships. I miss Mike very much having worked for him at United Artists Records.
