Jon Hammond for Alcatel-Lucent / Bell Labs:
“On stage, on television or on the radio waves 
everyday I feel lucky because I’m ALWAYS ON!
Jon Hammond
Musician, television personality and radio broadcaster Jon Hammond boarded a Concorde in 1981 to travel from New York to Paris at supersonic speed, and he never slowed down.
Jon travels the world, touring in Europe and Asia two or three times each year while broadcasting his “HammondCast” morning radio show seven days a week. At home in the United States, Jon splits his time between New York City and San Francisco and performs four to five concerts each month at local hospitals, nursing homes and prisons. His cable television program, “The Jon Hammond Show,” is in its 25th year and going strong.
“In my business, it’s essential to be contactable 24/7. I couldn’t organize as much as I do without being ALWAYS ON.”
Inspired by the Beatles and fascinated by the radio (he built a crystal radio at the age of five), Jon knew he was destined to be a musician. Although that’s a departure from tradition – Jon’s father and grandfather were physicians – Jon carries on the family business in his own way by performing in some of the very hospitals where his father once practiced medicine.
“I’ve seen people get out of their wheelchairs and dance more times than I can count, so I’m happy I can make a difference playing for those who are less fortunate than me.”
Jon has not forgotten those who opened doors for him when he was first starting out in music and broadcasting, and now he uses his radio and cable television shows to do the same for deserving young talent.
Like Jon, we at Alcatel-Lucent are passionate about connecting people through communications technology. In our Bell Labs locations around the world, we’re working on new and exciting innovations in next-generation broadband technology to ensure people like Jon can find even more creative ways to share music, moments and memories. http://www.HammondCast.com

Joe Berger knows sound! Joe has been mixing sound for over 30 years and he stopped counting at 35,000 bands! Also a virtuoso guitar player with his own definitive, unique playing style and “ear”, Joe has jammed with the likes of John Entwistle and Jack Bruce. He has also been a fixture at music trade shows for decades as a guitar demonstrator, having set a record for most hours played at a single trade show.

PIA Flight Deck Footage and Singing of Star Spangled Banner Paki American Friendship Day
http://youtu.be/G1-Nh_oteRsF

Personally shot film by Jon Hammond while on tour in Germany and in cockpit of PIA 747 Jumbo (Pakistan International Airlines) flying with Paki VIP’s to New York for Pakistan – American Friendship Day Celebration with singing of our National Anthem “The Star Spangled Banner” and showing of patriotism that will touch your heart. This is a must-see. Look closely for quick cameo appearances of radio legend Al Jazzbeaux Collins and Ruth Messinger former Manhattan Borough President.
*Note: Jon Hammond would like to say a special thanks to Pakistan International Airlines Crew…

Happy Channukah 2012 / Jewish Holiday Calendar 5773 from NYC folks! We have a huge Menorah in our building in Manhattan, Jon Hammond

*Obama displays menorah rescued from Sandy destruction in Hanukkah ceremony
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/272949-obama-displays-menorah-rescued-from-sandy-destruction-in-hanukkah-ceremony
President Obama called a 90-year-old menorah saved from a Long Island temple ravaged by Hurricane Sandy a “symbol of perseverance” at the White House Hanukkah ceremony on Thursday.

The president said the menorah stood as one of the “powerful symbols of [the Hanukkah] spirit” in brief remarks before around 600 guests. The lamp, crafted of solid brass, was saved from the Temple Israel of Long Beach. The house of worship was badly damaged as the hurricane battered the New York coast.

“I’m willing to bet it will survive another 90 years, and another 90 years after that,” the president said. “Tonight it serves as another symbol of perseverance.”
Obama, who was joined by first lady Michelle Obama, added that on the sixth night of the Jewish holiday, “we pray its light will bring victims of Sandy and all Americans to a brighter tomorrow.”
The menorah was lit by Rabbi Larry Bazer, an Afghanistan war veteran. Obama noted that Bazer had been deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan, as a military chaplain over the last Hanukkah, joking he had turned down an invitation to the White House ceremony.

“We don’t get that very often,” Obama said. “Usually when we invite people they come.”

Entertainment for the event was provided by the West Point Jewish Chapel Cadet Choir and the U.S. Marine Chamber Orchestra.

On the way walking home by good luck I saw an elusive Google Maps Street View car parked on W.30th St. that had driven all the way from California to New York City, notice the high-tech equipment and California plates, highly-interesting!

I hope nobody breaks in the car, often happens when equipment is left in parked cars in New York City (happened 6 times to me personally)

*note: as soon as I started taking pictures of the Google Maps Street View mobile car, other people started to also and soon there was a crowd of people taking pictures
