Willi, Not sure if you located Michael O. or still even have the tapes but I can let him know your info and he can contact you if interested. Melinda

I am trying to find contact info for Michael. I am an editor in Toronto who worked on his demo tapes. I am currently storing a great number of his original tapes. I have no room left to store and need to return the material to Michael. Any info will help. Thanks Willi
