Hi: I have heard that bay area OKOM legend Dick Oxtot was instrumental in  
recognizing Janis Joplin's talent and getting her career started.
Perhaps some other members who knew Dick might be able to explain this in  
more detail.
PS I often kick myself for not accepting Dick's offer to rehearse with his  
group in the mid 60's. I thought he and his buddies were a bunch of old 
foggies,  not realizing they were masters of this craft of OKOM. Guys like Bob 
Neighbor  and Bob Meilke were part of Dick's group at that  time.
