http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_Tomate
Radio Tomate était une radio associative française créée en 1981.
Alors que tombe le monopole d’État sur la radiodiffusion, le Centre d’Initiative pour de Nouveaux Espaces de Liberté (CINEL), dirigé notamment par le philosophe et psychanalyste Félix Guattari, participe à la création de Radio Tomate qui a pour objectif une « réappropriation individuelle collective et […] un usage interactif des machines d’information, de communication, d’intelligence, d’art et de culture ».
La radio est animée par des militants, notamment issus du mouvement autonome. Elle vise à ouvrir de nouveaux espaces de débat et d’information politiques, et à lutter contre la répression des mouvements sociaux. La première Radio Tomate ne dure que deux ans.
Le projet est ensuite réactivé en 1988, toujours sur le principe de donner la parole aux personnes en lutte. L’antenne émet sur le 106.7 MHz en région parisienne, et partage la fréquence, et donc le temps d’antenne, avec plusieurs autres radios. Radio Tomate anime à l’époque cinq émissions, sur les questions du droit au logement, de la précarité, de la double peine, des luttes anti-carcérales (Parloir libre), et une émission punk.
Lorsqu’émerge en 1991 le projet plus large d’une radio associative assumant une pleine fréquence, les animateurs de Radio Tomate décident de porter leur énergie sur la création de cette nouvelle antenne. Radio Tomate disparaît alors en 1992 pour donner naissance à Fréquence Paris Plurielle

Teplice Czech Republic — Somehow we found the only music shop in a potato field in Teplice Czech Republic on the way driving back from Muzika trade fair in Prague – here are the people with Michael Falkenstein just after I told them: “This is your LUCKY DAY…we are from HAMMOND SUZUKI DEUTSCHLAND!!” Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teplice
Teplice is located in northwestern Bohemia near the border with the German state of Saxony. It is situated in the plain of the Bílina river, which separates the Ore Mountains (Czech: Krušné Hory) in the northwest from the Czech Central Mountains (Czech: České středohoří) in the southeast.
Teplice (Czech pronunciation: [ˈtɛplɪtsɛ]), Teplice-Šanov until 1948 (Czech pronunciation: [ˈtɛplɪtsɛ ˈʃanof]; German: Teplitz-Schönau, archaically Töplitz) is a town in the Czech Republic, the capital of the Teplice District in the Ústí nad Labem Region. It is the state’s second largest spa town (after Karlovy Vary). Teplitz was the primary seat of the Clary-und-Aldringen Austro-Hungarian princes. — with Michael Falkenstein in Teplice Na Metuje, Trutnov

New York NY — Flashback to August 1989 – Studio drummer Bernard Purdie takes the microphone on last set at Mikell’s with Jon Hammond and The Late Rent Session Men band to dedicate the performance to his children Phyllis and Anthony. Theme song for the long-running cable TV program The Jon Hammond Show “Late Rent” original composition with
Jon Hammond at his 1959 B3 organ
Bernard Purdie drums
Chuggy Carter percussion
Alex Foster alto saxophone
Barry Finnerty guitar
*Note: This historic clip is photographic proof that the actual location of Mikell’s was 760 Columbus Avenue at 97th and not 808 Columbus as the current Whole Foods near the old location claims, highly interesting!
This is some of the rare surviving footage from Mikell’s, in the house that night all night long was Hugh Masekela, Cornell Dupree and many musicians as Mikell’s was the traditional hang for all New York Studio Musicians until it’s closing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horst_Lippmann

Horst Lippmann (March 17, 1927 in Eisenach, Germany – May 18, 1997 in Frankfurt am Main) was a German jazz musician, concert promoter, writer and television director, best known as promoter of the influential American Folk Blues Festival tours of Europe during and after the 1960s.
The son of a hotelier, Lippmann played drums in the illegal Frankfurter Hot Club in the 1940s, and wrote for one of the first German jazz magazines, Mitteilungen für Freunde der modernen Tanzmusik (Messages for Friends of Modern Dance Music). After the war he played in the combos of the Hot Club with Günter Boaz. Together with Olaf Hudtwalcker, he was involved in the founding of the German Jazz Federation, and organized and participated in concert tours by the West German jazz clubs. In 1953 he founded the German Jazz Festival at Frankfurt.
In the mid-1950s he formed the Lippmann + Rau concert agency with Fritz Rau, and began bringing jazz, blues and rock and roll stars to Germany for the first time. Between 1962 and 1982 he organized the American Folk Blues Festival, initially by contacting Chicago blues musician and songwriter Willie Dixon. The festivals were arranged almost annually during the 1960s, performing in England and France as well as Germany and being recorded for television programmes, and brought such musicians as Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin’ Wolf, Lonnie Johnson, Big Joe Williams, John Lee Hooker, Skip James, Little Walter, Buddy Guy, and Memphis Slim before European audiences for the first time. Attendees of early festivals included such influential musicians as Mick Jagger, Eric Burdon, Eric Clapton, and Steve Winwood.
Lippmann was also known in Germany as a radio personality and as director of television broadcasts.

Hamburg Germany — Classic 1962 Chevrolet Corvette
at Route 66 Hamburg – Jon Hammond
http://www.route66-hh.de/main.htm

The Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of the sports car by the Chevrolet division of General Motors introduced late in the 1953 model year and produced through 1962. It is commonly referred to as the “solid-axle” generation, as the independent rear suspension didn’t appear until the 1963 Sting Ray. The Corvette was rushed into production for its debut model year to capitalize on the enthusiastic public reaction to the concept vehicle, but expectations for the new model were largely unfulfilled.[3] Reviews were mixed and sales fell far short of expectations through the car’s early years. The program was nearly canceled, but Chevrolet would ultimately stay the course and Harley Earl and company would transform the Corvette into a true world-class sports car.
In 1927 General Motors hired designer Harley Earl who loved sports cars. GIs returning after serving overseas in the years following World War II were bringing home MGs, Jaguars, Alfa Romeos, and the like.[5] In 1951, Nash Motors began selling an expensive two-seat sports car, the Nash-Healey, that was made in partnership with the Italian designer Pinin Farina and British auto engineer Donald Healey,[6] but there were few moderate-priced models.[7] Earl convinced GM that they needed to build a two-seat sports car, and with his Special Projects crew began working on the new car, “Project Opel” in late 1951.[7] The result was the hand-built, EX-122 pre-production Corvette prototype, which was first shown to the public at the 1953 GM Motorama at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City on January 17, 1953. Production began six months later. The car is now located at the Kerbeck Corvette museum in Atlantic City and is believed to be the oldest Corvette in existence.

China Beach is a small cove in San Francisco’s Sea Cliff neighborhood. It lies between Baker Beach and Lands End and is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. A marker at the trailhead leading down to the beach indicates that it was named for Chinese fishermen who used to camp at the beach. It was previously known as James D. Phelan State Beach Park and is one of the cleanest in the state.

Pocket Funk as heard on The Jon Hammond Show TV program on MNNTV and on Late Rent album – Behind The Beat http://behindthebeat.com/2004/12/jon-hammond-late-rent/ by Steve Rosenfeld “Jon Hammond says “the fingers are the singers.'” The latest CD from this exceptional and soulful Hammond organist is the proof. “Late Rent” draws on decades of great recording sessions and top live performances to showcase his own playing and many top jazz and funk artists. It shows why the Hammond organ is one of the most enduring electric instruments and why Hammond is one of its best players.”

Funkadelic! George Clinton and Jon Hammond

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Clinton_(musician)
George Clinton (born July 22, 1941) is an American singer, songwriter, bandleader, and music producer and the principal architect of P-Funk. He was the mastermind of the bands Parliament and Funkadelic during the 1970s and early 1980s, and launched a solo career in 1981. He has been cited as one of the foremost innovators of funk music, along with James Brown and Sly Stone. Clinton was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 with fifteen other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.
Clinton was born in Kannapolis, North Carolina (allegedly in an outhouse), grew up in Plainfield, New Jersey, and currently resides in Tallahassee, Florida. During his teen years Clinton formed a doo wop group inspired by Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers called The Parliaments while straightening hair at a barber salon in Plainfield. For a period in the 1960s Clinton was a staff songwriter for Motown. Despite initial commercial failure (and one major hit single, “(I Wanna) Testify” in 1967), The Parliaments eventually found success under the names Parliament and Funkadelic in the seventies (see also P-Funk). These two bands combined the elements of musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Sly and the Family Stone, Cream and James Brown while exploring different sounds, technology, and lyricism. Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic dominated diverse music during the 1970s with over 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and three platinum albums. Clinton’s efforts as a solo artist began in 1982. He is also a notable music producer working on almost all of the albums he performs on, as well as producing albums for Bootsy Collins and Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others.
[edit]1980s
Beginning in the early 1980s, Clinton recorded several nominal solo albums, although all of these records featured contributions from P-Funk’s core musicians. The primary reason for recording under his own name was legal difficulties, due to the complex copyright and trademark issues surrounding the name “Parliament” (primarily) and Polygram’s purchase of that group’s former label Casablanca Records.
In 1982, Clinton signed to Capitol Records under two names: his own (as a solo artist) and as the P-Funk All-Stars, releasing Computer Games under his own name that same year.[1] The single “Loopzilla” hit the Top 20 on the R&B charts, followed by “Atomic Dog”, which reached #1 R&B and #101 on the pop chart.[1] In the next four years, Clinton released three more studio albums (You Shouldn’t-Nuf Bit Fish, Some of My Best Jokes Are Friends and R&B Skeletons in the Closet) as well as a live album, Mothership Connection (Live from the Summit, Houston, Texas) and charting three singles in the R&B Top 30, “Nubian Nut”, “Last Dance”, and “Do Fries Go with That Shake?”. This period of Clinton’s career was marred by multiple legal problems (resulting in financial difficulties) due to complex royalty and copyright issues.
In 1985, he was recruited by the Red Hot Chili Peppers to produce their album Freaky Styley, because the band members were huge fans of George Clinton and funk in general. Clinton, in fact, wrote the vocals and lyrics to the title track which was originally intended by the band to be left as an instrumental piece. The album was not a commercial success at the time, but has since sold 500,000 copies after the Red Hot Chili Peppers became popular years later.

Though Clinton’s popularity had waned by the mid 1980s, he experienced something of a resurgence in the early 1990s, as many rappers cited him as an influence and began sampling his songs. Alongside James Brown, George Clinton is considered to be one of the most sampled musicians ever. In 1989, Clinton released The Cinderella Theory on Paisley Park, Prince’s record label. This was followed by Hey Man, Smell My Finger in 1993. Clinton then signed with Sony 550 and released T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M. (The Awesome Power of a Fully Operational Mothership) in 1996, having reunited with several old members of Parliament and Funkadelic.
[edit]1990s to 2000s

1994 saw Clinton contribute to several tracks on Primal Scream’s studio album Give Out But Don’t Give Up. In 1995 Clinton sang “Mind Games” on the John Lennon tribute Working Class Hero. In the 1990s, Clinton appeared in films such as Graffiti Bridge (1990), House Party (1990), PCU (1994), Good Burger (1997) and The Breaks (1999). In 1997 he appeared as himself in the Cartoon Network show Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Clinton also appeared as the voice of The Funktipus, the DJ of the Funk radio station Bounce FM in the 2004 video game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, in which his song “Loopzilla” also appeared. Rapper Dr. Dre sampled most of his beats to create his G-Funk music era.
Displaying his influence on rap and hip hop, Clinton also worked with Tupac Shakur on the song “Can’t C Me” from the album All Eyez on Me; Ice Cube on the song and video for “Bop Gun (One Nation)” on the Lethal Injection album (which sampled Funkadelic’s earlier hit “One Nation Under A Groove”); Outkast on the song “Synthesizer” from the album Aquemini; Redman on the song “J.U.M.P.” from the album Malpractice; Souls of Mischief on “Mama Knows Best” from the album Trilogy: Conflict, Climax, Resolution; Killah Priest on “Come With me” from the album Priesthood, and the Wu Tang Clan on “Wolves” from the album 8 Diagrams.

Clinton founded a record label called The C Kunspyruhzy in 2005. He had a cameo appearance in the season-two premiere of the CBS television sitcom How I Met Your Mother, on September 18, 2006.
“You’re Thinking Right”, the theme song for The Tracey Ullman Show, was written by Clinton. He appeared on the intro to Snoop Dogg’s Tha Blue Carpet Treatment album, released in 2007. Clinton was also a judge for the 5th annual Independent Music Awards to support independent artists’ careers.[2]
On September 16, 2008, Clinton released a solo album, George Clinton and His Gangsters of Love on Shanachie Records. Largely a covers album, Gangsters features guest appearances from Sly Stone, El DeBarge, Red Hot Chili Peppers, RZA, Carlos Santana, gospel singer Kim Burrell and more.[3]
On September 10, 2009, George Clinton was awarded the Urban Icon Award from Broadcast Music Incorporated.[4] The ceremony featured former P-Funk associate Bootsy Collins, as well contemporary performers such as Big Boi from Outkast and Cee-Lo Green from Goodie Mob.
On February 1, 2010, Clinton’s son, George Clinton, Jr., was found dead in his Florida home. According to police, he had been dead for several days and died of natural causes.[5]
On May 20, 2010, George Clinton received a proclamation from Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs of Plainfield, New Jersey, the city in which he was raised, at a fundraiser for the Barack Obama Green Charter High School, which is focused creating leaders in sustainability for the 21st Century.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Franklin
Joe Franklin (born Joseph Fortgang on March 9, 1926) is an American radio and television personality. From New York City, Franklin is credited with hosting the first television talk show. The show began in 1951 on WJZ-TV (later WABC-TV) and moved to WOR-TV (later WWOR-TV) from 1962 to 1993.[1]

After retiring from the television show, Franklin concentrated on an overnight radio show, playing old records on WOR-AM on Saturday evenings. He currently interviews celebrities on the Bloomberg Radio Network.[2]
An author, Franklin has written 23 books, including Classics of the Silent Screen.[3] His 1995 autobiography Up Late with Joe Franklin[4] chronicles his long career and includes claims that he had dalliances with Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, and that Veronica Lake “threw herself at me, but I always refrained.”[5] He has appeared as himself in countless films, notably Ghostbusters and Broadway Danny Rose.
Franklin’s show was often parodied by Billy Crystal during the 1984–1985 season of Saturday Night Live. Franklin was also a pioneer in promoting products such as Hoffman Beverages and Ginger Ale on the air.[1]
Known as “the king of nostalgia”, Franklin’s highly-rated television and radio shows, especially a cult favorite to cable television viewers and his long-running “Memory Lane” radio programs, focused on old-time show-business personalities.
Franklin has an encyclopedic knowledge of the music, musicians and singers, the Broadway stage shows, the films and entertainment stars of the first half of the 20th Century, and is an acknowledged authority on silent film.
He began his entertainment career at 16 as a record picker for Martin Block’s popular “Make Believe Ballroom” radio program.
Among Franklin’s own idols, as he frequently told viewers, were Al Jolson, whom he literally “followed around” as a teenager in New York, and Eddie Cantor, who eventually began buying jokes from the young Franklin and whose Carnegie Hall show Franklin later produced.
Franklin would delight his audience with trivia about the most obscure entertainers from past generations and equally unknown up-and-comers from the present. His guests ranged from novelty performers like Tiny Tim, and Morris Katz to popular entertainers like Bill Cosby and Captain Lou Albano to legends like Bing Crosby, Charlie Chaplin, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, but also frequently included (sometimes on the same panel) unknown local New York punk bands, self-published authors, “tribute” impersonator lounge singers, and the like, giving the show a surreal atmosphere that was part of its appeal.
Many of today’s well known talents such as Woody Allen, Barbra Streisand and Julia Roberts got their first television exposure on The Joe Franklin Show. Others, notoriously shy of live interviews, made frequent appearances on Franklin’s programs: Frank Sinatra, for instance, appeared four times.
Joe would appear on the very first episode of This American Life giving host Ira Glass advice on how to have a sucessful show.
In addition to his TV Talk Show, Joe appeared regularly with Conan O’Brien. He’s also seen on “The David Letterman Show,” “Live With Regis And Kathy Lee,” and has been mentioned several times on the hit cartoon series “The Simpsons.”
Producer Richie Ornstein has worked side-by-side with Joe Franklin for decades and was a standard feature on Joe Franklin’s Show to interact with guests and to discuss trivia. — with Joe Franklin at Times Square NYC

Harold Lane “Hal” David (May 25, 1921 – September 1, 2012) was an American lyricist. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York City. He was best known for his collaborations with composer Burt Bacharach and his association with Dionne Warwick.
David was born to a Jewish family in New York City, the son of Lina (née Goldberg) and Gedalier David, a deli owner.[1] He is credited with popular music lyrics, beginning in the 1940s with material written for bandleader Sammy Kaye and for Guy Lombardo. He worked with Morty Nevins of The Three Suns on four songs for the feature film Two Gals and a Guy (1951), starring Janis Paige and Robert Alda.
In 1957, David met composer Burt Bacharach at Famous Music in the Brill Building in New York. The two teamed up and wrote their first hit “The Story of My Life”, recorded by Marty Robbins in 1957. Later that year Perry Como had a hit with their “Magic Moments”. Subsequently, in the 1960s and early 1970s Bacharach and David wrote some of the most enduring songs in American popular music, many for Dionne Warwick but also for The Carpenters, Dusty Springfield, B. J. Thomas, Gene Pitney, Tom Jones, Jackie DeShannon and others.
Bacharach and David hits included “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head”, “This Guy’s in Love with You”, “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again”, “Do You Know the Way to San Jose”, “Walk On By”, “What the World Needs Now Is Love”, “I Say a Little Prayer”, “(There’s) Always Something There to Remind Me”, “One Less Bell to Answer”, and “Anyone Who Had a Heart”.
The duo’s film work includes the Oscar-nominated title songs for “What’s New Pussycat?” and “Alfie”, “The Look of Love”, from Casino Royale; and the Oscar-winning “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid In addition, “Don’t Make Me Over”, “(They Long to Be) Close to You”, and “Walk On By” have been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
David and Bacharach were awarded the 2011 Gershwin Prize for Popular Song bestowed by the Library of Congress, the first time a songwriting team was given the honor. David was recuperating from a recent illness and was unable to attend the Washington D.C. presentation ceremony in May 2012.[2]
David’s work with other composers includes Willie Nelson and Julio Iglesias’s “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before”, with Albert Hammond; Sarah Vaughan’s “Broken Hearted Melody”, with Sherman Edwards; the 1962 Joanie Sommers hit “Johnny Get Angry”. also with Edwards; and “We Have All the Time in the World”, written with John Barry and sung by Louis Armstrong for the 1969 James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. With Paul Hampton, David co-wrote the country standard “Sea of Heartbreak”, a hit for Don Gibson and others.
David died in the morning hours of September 1, 2012, due to a stroke. He was 91.

Chronicles of my 1965 Hammond B3 Organ last reported at sea on container ship

History of My 1965 Hammond B3 and Leslie 122 Jon Hammond USA

Jon Hammond USA — 40 years ago when I was 18 years old in the year 1971, I was a member of an

original rock band called HADES. My first full size Hammond organ I had purchased from Boz Scaggs

which was a model A-103 with 2 Leslies and road cases. What I really wanted was a Hammond B3 organ

with 122 Leslie. My previous organ I had custom modified by the legendary Bill Beer of Keyboard

Products in Los Angeles. This was the organ that I lent to Chester Thompson at the time he joined

Tower of Power. Chester liked the organ so much, that he went down to L.A. and had Bill Beer

build him the rig that he used for over 30 years in the Carlos Santana Band.

Always on the look out for a B3, I went to a party in Berkeley CA in a house where there was a

beautiful Hammond B3 and Leslie 122. The young man who owned the organ told me he would be

interested in selling the organ. I told my Dad about it and the next day we went back to the

house, checked it out and made an offer. I had to take out a bank loan for the organ and so I

then sold my A-103 organ rig to Leo of Leo’s Music in Oakland CA. When I got the B3 I took it

down to Los Angeles in a cloased U-Haul trailer on the back of my Dad’s 1967 Lincoln Continental

I had Bill Beer install a few custom ‘mods’ including Spring Reverb, Aux Inputs and Outputs,

and a voltage controller. I used to like to stack 2 Leslie speakers as in this photo:

I could have never bought my Hammond B3 organ and Leslie if my Father had not co-signed the bank

loan, thanks Dad!:

Here is the inside of my 1965 Hammond B3 – serial number 96994

You can see some of the custom modifications Bill Beer installed in my B3 organ

more mods by Bill Beer Keyboard Products

Serial Number plate of stock model 122 Leslie Speaker 27777

Over the years I have played many concerts with my 1965 Hammond B3 organ in places such as

Bill Graham’s Shoreline Amphitheater and right in front of San Francisco City Hall *see here:

YouTube clip:

Custom Inputs:

As I write this, I am prepping my B3 and Leslie for a long trip to Bernies Music Land in

Ringwood Victoria Australia. I want to thank Bernie Capicchiano for keeping the legacy of

this magnificent instrument alive. My organ will be in the museum of Bernies Music Land and with

good luck I will be returning again to Australia in the future to play it again on the other

side of the planet and next time it will be powered by 240 volts folks!

Thank you Bernie and Bernies Music Land Award Winning Musico Team!

Filmed in Hammond Suzuki Deutschland Headquarters Karlstrasse 38

“Meet The Incredible Sk1 Hammond with Michael Falkenstein and Jon Hammond”
First look at this exciting new keyboard product weighing in at 7 kilos, just over 15 lbs., it sounds like a real Hammond B3 organ with Leslie, or a full size grand piano, any type of famous vintage electric piano or synthesizer. This keyboard does it all and with original Hammond drawbars and it’s feather light. Sk1 has a built in USB flash drive input, the keys are ‘bullet proof’ waterfall style keys that can hold up to extreme pressure of rockin’ rock musicians, swinging jazz musicians and can even sound like a huge pipe organ. This film will blow your mind.
