I met a lady in Vons, Gover Beach, California who said you might be able to help a friend of mine in Tucson who is an up-and-coming musician. I am not sure why she said you might help or how, but here I am! The name of my friend is Amber Norgaard, she has opened for Kenny Loggins and others, has a great voice, but, I guess, needs a break (!) I will put you in touch...thanks
I feel a bit like rip van winkle,I'm an old friend of mike's,jounior high and high school and Oregon.hard to tell you how sorry I was to here of his passing.we lost areally great guy.
I tried to get him to come to our friend Dave Hammock's memorial just a couple months earlier.
The few times I get down there,I was kind of bummed I missed him.Only to find out he was undoubtedly already in kimo.
Well I like mike wasn't to computer oriented.Fought it like the plague,finially took acouple of classes(didn't even know how to turn it on)and last spring my sister gave me her old laptop,so I'm just entering the modern world I guess.
I was hoping to buy acouple of cd's and say hello only to find out I was a little bit more than late.But I'm still intrested in the CD's if you still have some.I saw them for sale on one of the web sites but I'm not finding them now.
Another page somewhere,Kevin Dodge (Did he go to montecito union grade school)had a picture of Randy,Barbie,rielly in 71',all high school buddy's love to see that.
One thing I didn't see mentioned,In 70-71'era in a little Goleta shanty on Olney st.was The Olney st. Blues Band.I even played conga with them at the Lobero theater once Dave Hammock playrd drums,Mike on bass,Randy guitar and maybe Rielly or wilson,I can't remember who all.
Hi to Mark if he remembers me.
wishing you well

from Port Townsend Wa.
Hi Susan we met you (Jane and I) at a thrift store in San Luis Obispo and I want to hike with you. I could not catch you for your phone number. Can you contact me via email. take care
Hello, Susan! What a pleasure meeting you--I hope this Sunday is treating you well. I made it to Santa Monica and so far am having an incredible time. Truly. I played at a club yesterday afternoon and was well received. Today I think I will busk on the pier :) I had a look around Mike's website and will listen more to his music when I can pump up the sound and really listen. I'll be heading back toward San Luis O on Wednesday--it's be sweet to see you again!
Hope your birthday was a great one.
So sadden to here of Mike passing I grew up around the corner from Mike in Santa Barbara Shores. His brother Mark is a good friend of mine. Mark called me last Oct.. but I eas in Mexico and missed his call when I tryed to return his call I got a diconnected number'. I was wondering if someone there knew his phone number, or if someone could give him mine so he could call me shure would like to here from him. Mike Baker 541 942 8423. Just found out about this today I didnt know Mike had cancer Mike was such a good person Hell be missed by me and my wife Diana
I just heard of Mike's passing. I'm glad to hear that you were with him when he left. I've been meaning to get in touch with you guys but my life has been more then hectic. Moved from TN when I got hired by Focke in NC. Worked there until I got caught with over 3 ozs of OR MMJ. It destroyed my professional career. Figured if I had to work shit jobs I might as well do it in a place I love. Settled in Grand Junction CO a year ago "April Fools Day". I started going over the old BTB images. There are some classics. Especially the one's depicting the interaction between the Randy and Mike. I wanted to contact you earlier and see about letting you use selected images of the two of them as a Memorial to the Randy. Maybe now to the duo. My website is supposed to be up in December, so you'll be able to see all of them then. Accessed Mike's website before I started this so his music is playing in the background, having a hard time keeping back the tears...
Anyway sorry for our loss.... sincerely... Joe Niehuser

Keven Johnson & I are looking for a "voice" of an old indian chief for our up coming kj cartoons project entitled: Little Wind - the story of a boy's survival ...
What a trip to connect again after such a long time. I love your music and hope to catch one of your performances.
Keep up the good work.
hi Mike i have some 1971 photos of you,Randy Madron,Barbie Wood & George Reilly playing a wedding \"pool party\" at
the Wallace\'s in Winchester Village,Goleta
You have played for our xmas company party in 2008 @ the SYV Historical Museum. We are doing the same event this year and I was wondering if you were available. Friday: 12/17/10 6:00-9:00 (or maybe 8:00ish...). Please let me know your availability and rates.
Thanks, Diane (805) 686-9400 x204
I am hoping you remember Adam (the one who bought your cassette years ago at the natural history museum and we came and saw you in Santa Maria (?) and hadsten house.) I was looking at your itinerary to see if you are playing while he is here visiting from tomorrow until Sunday. I'm sad that you aren't but he should be here over a Wednesday during his winter break so hopefully we can come to your solvang gig in December.
Adam\'s 30th birthday just passed - same day as yours! Happy late birthday to you!!
Just a thought - and a very late thought - how much do you charge for a short concert? We will have an early dinner at his family\'s place in Santa Barbara to celebrate his birthday on Saturday november 13th. I know this is totally last minute and it would be a miracle if you were available. I also know that it is a far drive for you so that would have to be taken into consideration as well. Fingers are crossed that maybe by chance you will be in Santa Barbara this weekend already! But I know that is a lot of if\'s!
As I said I know this is totally last minute and can\'t imagine that it would be possible and that I could afford it! Maybe another time if not this time!
My very best to you and your wife who I know may read this before you do since she handles the website!
So Mike what have you been up to? We need to talk.
I hope you're doing well. I'm S.B. for the weekend and was hoping to hear some good music. I looked on the internet for you and Randy and found out that Randy was gone. Bummer man.
Take care and hope life has been good to you,
Just sitting here enjoying you music!!!!!!!!!!
AS ALWAYS, Debbie
My boyfriend, Adam, and I met you on 8/21 at the Whistle Stop. Adam had seen you perform at the Natural History Museum years ago and listened to the cassette he bought ever since. We had such a great time watching you play and talking to you during your break.
Adam's birthday is coming up on Oct. 30. I would love to purchase a CD from you for his birthday gift and I'm hoping you might be able to sign it. I was thinking I could pick it up from you during your Solvang performance this Tuesday. If that works, is there a good time to stop by (at the beginning or the end?)
Thank you so much!

I am president of the Dallas Folk Music Society in Dallas Texas. This is an informal group of folk enthusiasts that like to play and sing folk songs. The membership ranges from amateur to professional, and listeners. We meet for a Hootenanny on the second Saturday of every month, on a rotational basis, in a members home. Attendance varies from 15 to 45. About once a year we like to have a professional from outside perform at one of our Hoots. The compensation is only a token amount of $200 as we do not sell tickets for the event. If you would consider performing for the Dallas Folk Music Society, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Got your voice mail inquiring about our house concert. We do not have a regular schedule. We like to know the artists we present and go to Folk Alliance and NERFA with a view to doing so. We also visit California several times and so would be glad to know your performing schedule so we might catch a show.
I am one of the new owners of the Mandolin Cafe in Tacoma. We bought it this summer and some shows were already scheduled when we purchased. I have you down on our schedule for Oct 2. I looked at your itinerary and find that you are booked somewhere else for this time. I will take you off our calendar. I guess I just wanted you to know in case you get some inquiries about it.
I used to live in Tucson and your music is making me reminisce. Quite lovely.
I am planning to hear you play in Sequim, Wa. next Sat. 9-27. I dont live too far from there (Whidbey Island). Looking forward to it. Give me a call.

Enjoyed meeting you & hearing you sing at the restruant in Springville, AL on July 4, 2008. I was the one that grew up close to Lake Tiakata (sp) in Mississippi. God speed.
Great show in El Dorado, Mike. Really, really a treat to hear your stories. Hope you come back soon.
Someone from your organization sent out an email to our venue - North Elk Coffee House, North East, MD www.stmaryanne.org - in the past several months with information about you and your music. Our planning committee listened to your music and would like to have you play our stage. It looks like you stay close to the West Coast and Southwestern states, but I noticed a few in the east and at least one gig in Maryland on your schedule. We run our series in the church parish hall and donate all profits to the local homeless support organization. You can see more of what we do at the website above, if you click on the North Elk Coffee House link at the bottom. We can only afford to pay $250 plus a room or $300 without the room, and I am sure you get more than that. But if you happened to be putting an east coast trip together and had a free Saturday night, we might fit into your plans. I\'ll wait to hear from you, then I could give you possible dates if you are interested. Thanks very much for your time.

If it is I havent seen her in years.Hope you are doing ok. Im still in shock about Randy passing at such a young age. Hope your dad is recovering ok, send him my regards. Mario

Hey Mike, got any plans for any kind of memorial to Maddog, am going to miss him every day for the rest of my life as I am sure you will also. Have you heard Ron Bender has his own sports bar at the old MolleKron, that's where I work. Be in touch when you, Love always, Lizzie
So sad to hear about Maddog. I am bummed. He had so much life, a good guy, personable and easy to talk with. Last time I saw him surfing Rincon he was ripping, just a few years ago. I ran into him every few months or so it seemed. Have you heard of any musical gatherings planned, maybe a Brewhouse thing? Man, we are all getting older. I really appreciate the time I had living w/ Moward and getting to know you cats and checking the Goods and the Wedding Band at great venues like Giuseppi's. A sweet joint that is now being lost in time. Peace out Mike.
Would you please send me an email of your bio, at the rate I type copying from your web page would take a week,
