Complete Track Listing of my original recordings from my written notes.  Sometimes, I later recorded alternative versions of the same songs, but those tapes had no notes and only one appears to have survived the years.

    While at Indiana State studying for a Computer Science major, I continued to work at Oak Ridge as part of Coop Program that I had originally started while attending Purdue. I was in Oak Ridge for three Spring semesters in a row: ’81, ’82, and ’83 and summer session of ’83 before returning to school for final two semesters of studies. All the tapes except the last were recorded in Tennessee while a coop student. Two tapes in Spring 81 semester, and two and a half tapes each in the Spring 82 and Spring 83 semesters. I think the final tape was recorded in Tennessee shortly after having finished my final semester and starting to work full time in Oak Ridge.

    I had gotten a job offer way back at the beginning of my final year and accepted it. That was kind of nice because unlike most other seniors I didn’t have to worry about looking for a job. I could focus on my studies. But when I came to work a year later, the people that hired me weren’t there and a lot had changed. My new bosses weren’t sure what to do with me. Some people that I had worked with before that were now out in California asked me to join them on a temporary assignment out there. Since my new bosses had no idea what to do with me, I took that job assignment. So, I had to move all my stuff back up to Indiana to store with my parents and then fly out to California. Thus, ending my recording and song writing efforts, with the exception of one last song that I write a few years later, in 1987 when I was back in Oak Ridge again.
