? My friend Mark Donajkowski & I did a songwriters open mic hosted by Jim Novak in 1996 or '97 there at Oz's. I was wondering if you or anyone would have our performance in archive accessible on-line or otherwise? We may have called ourselves "Peach Mountain Ramblers" then. Any direction you could suggest to find this would be appreciated. Thanks!

I remember you guys! I have the archive from those days on VHS. I've been looking into how to digitize VHS and put it into iMovie, which is what I use now. It'll be online eventually. Where are you now? (Jim Novak, singer-songwriter and host)

Still going strong on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30-9:30, in Ann Arbor, about a mile from Michigan Stadium. Performers do 3 original songs per set.

For over 15 years, this acoustic event has seen hundreds of songwriters and plenty of great songs. It's in a small performing space next to Oz's music store (and a few steps away from one of Ann Arbor's best deli's.) The open mic is videotaped for a community-access TV show seen here and in Grand Rapids.
