Jon Hammond HammondCast 29, Jon Hammond tells the story of meeting an actual ZIMMERMAN on his Wanderjahre at the bar of his friend's club UPTOWN NIGHTCLUB in Oakland CA. Zimmerman men are a centuries-old tradition in Germany of Carpenter Apprentices who walk around for one year fixing people's roofs and learning the trade of a Carpenter, without pay for food and lodging only..and there he was at the Uptown Nightclub!
