CIrca '89 Jon Hammond Show MCTV w/ Eddie Money, John Entwistle, Joe Berger + Bonus:Kenny Bridge Diver!



Action-packed vintage clip from the long-running (24th year) NYC cable-access TV show "The Jon Hammond Show" has classic opening with Video by LORI, Eddie Money spot filmed the night he did David Letterman with Ronnie Spector "Take Me Home Tonight". Also a spot for Joe Berger's Impromptu Video Movie with voice-over by Jon Hammond featuring John Entwistle (RIP) of the WHO & Jack Bruce of CREAM. This spot was a noble attempt at marketing that went awry. Joe unfortunately got ripped off by the people who were supposed to run the ad nation-wide 1989, but we've got it for you here..enjoy! ©2009 www.HammondCast.com *BONUS: Kenny the Belly-flop Bridge Swan Diver..ouch!
