Charlie Cook's CRS Karma

Ever lost your cell phone? Then you know the panic that CUMULUS Sr. VP/Programming CHARLIE COOK felt during CRS. One mintute, in his hand ... next minute, lost somewhere at the RENAISSANCE HOTEL or in the vast hallways and meeting rooms of the Convention Center!
Well, CHARLIE smartly told everyone he saw about this problem, and wisely mentioned that he was calling it in the hopes that someone would hear the ringtone of SANTANA & MICHELLE BRANCH's hit "Game Of Love" and turn it into lost and found.
While on a search, COOK ran into ... you guessed it ... MICHELLE BRANCH on an elevator at the RENAISSANCE and told her of his problem. Guess who "found" it? Yep, right again! A few minutes earlier MICHELLE heard the cell, recognized the ringtone, and turned it in to the hotel's front desk.
Imagine the odds of all of those details falling into place? Zillions to one odds! And, yes, CHARLIE now has that cell phone chained to his right hand.
