Attention Jeanne Moos producers at CNN – Submitted 3/22/2017 Low Audio

Idea Summary:

Hi Jeanne, Jon Hammond here

– met you a few years ago at Mitchel London’s on Ninth Ave. (now closed) – greetings! I want to tell you that I always try to watch/listen to your pieces on the CNN website, the commercials’ audio comes bombing in – but your audio is so low that you can hardly hear you – the commercials are at least 10 times louder. I have a top-of-the-line MacBook Pro in perfect working order so it’s not my computer. Yes there are a lot of us who can’t get CNN on cable TV, please tell your Web Admin. people to turn your audio up so we can hear you Jeanne! If they are telling you everything is fine, I’m writing to tell you they are shorting you big time on the audio gain – you should be as loud as the darn commercials, or at least half if they insist on cranking the commercials up – when I turn up the volume all the way on your pieces I can just barely hear you – the only way to get a copy is by plugging in my Sennheiser HD 25-1 studio headphones – what they are doing to your sound is ridiculous and disrespectful to your excellent Jouranlism! – Thanks very kindly for your attention, sincerely, Jon Hammond *Member AF of M Local 802 Musicians Union

This is my Lucky Day folks…I just had breakfast in Manhattan with Lee Houskeeper, friends from ‘real San Francisco CA’! Lee knows everybody worth knowing and is Chief Editor San Francisco Stories – Press Agent extraordinaire! Great to see you on this side of the good ol’ US of A Lee!

Jon Hammond *Note: Folks, Lee worked with some of my all-time favorite musical and political activist heroes including the late great Phil Ochs who was a huge inspiration to me, greatly missed! *Wiki:”Kansas City Bomber” is a song by Phil Ochs, a U.S. singer-songwriter best known for the protest songs he wrote in the 1960s.
In 1972, record producer Lee Housekeeper asked Ochs to write the theme song for the film Kansas City Bomber, a film about roller derby starring Raquel Welch.[1][2] Although Ochs enjoyed watching the sport on television, composing the song proved difficult, as Ochs was suffering from writer’s block.[1][2] At last, he made a demo, on which Micky Dolenz of The Monkees sang back-up vocals.[3]
Months later, Ochs was traveling in Australia. Housekeeper told him the film’s producers liked his demo, but it was not exactly what they were looking for. Ochs decided to make a new recording of the song, backed by the Australian rock band Daddy Cool.[4][5]
Ultimately, the film’s producers chose not to use the Ochs song in the soundtrack.[6] Nevertheless, he convinced his record company, A&M Records, to release it as a single. The record sold poorly.[6]
In the only known review of “Kansas City Bomber (song)”, Record World wrote that “progressives will find this a moody change of pace.”[7] Billboard included the single in its “Also Recommended” column.[8]
In 2001, writer Mark Brend described “Kansas City Bomber” as “unremarkable”.[9] Biographer Michael Schumacher wrote in 1996 that the song “was neither an admirable work nor an embarrassment”.[10]
Many Ochs fans never heard “Kansas City Bomber” before it was included in 1988’s The War Is Over: The Best of Phil Ochs. The song was also included in the 1997 collection American Troubadour.”
