HammondCast 18 from NYC tells the story of how Jon Hammond originally met Joe Berger (of Ham-Berger-Friz Records) and then plays a recording of one of the first jam sessions from year 1986 in BackBeat Productions' Studios in the Music Building in New York-251 W. 30th St., from a previous phoner with Pete Fallico.
From there we go in to the studio with Chris Cortez and tell some interesting stories going all the way back to 1957 when Jon came out to Berkeley California from Chicago on the California Zephyr and somehow ended up in Boston's Combat Zone playing Hammond organ nightly for the burlesque shows in the World Famous 2 o'clock Lounge! From there he tells the true story about "Late Rent" Jon's theme song which was paid for with the rent money!
Jon Hammond is an ASCAP Composer/Publisher and member of Local 802 & Local 6 Musicians Union. Special thanks to KYOU Radio, 1550 on the AM dial in San Francisco California!
