Steve Luongo “Who is this Joe Berger?” Jon Hammond: I was there in the station with my Sony D-7 recorder, Luongo kept dodging the question
saying “Oh we can’t talk about him right now.” That only inflamed Howard’s curiosity even more.
The truth of the story is that Joe Berger is the man who not only introduced John Entwistle to Rat Race Choir band which was already dysfunctional,
he convinced John to come to Chicago Summer The NAMM Show in 1987 to play a set with them at the Vic Theatre with a little bit of help from myself
Jon Hammond as documentarian for my cable TV program on MCTV – John Entwistle was already a long-time friend of Joe Berger and we filmed
him doing an epic jam in Frankfurt Germany together with Zak Starkey on drums, Joe Berger guitar, John Entwistle bass and special guests
Jack Bruce, Steve Stevens at the Soundcheck party in Dorian Gray nightclub inside the Frankfurt Airport on the night of February 2, 1987
musikmesse Party as seen on my TV show The Jon Hammond Show. Fast forward to November ’87, here we are at The Stone Pony
Joe Berger is at the mixing console, I am filming (Jon Hammond) with a special Sony industrial camera GCS-1 like film, I went all over the
world with my GCS-1 cameras documenting musical history for cable access broadcast, we are now in our 33rd year on MNN TV Channel 1 Manhattan Neighborhood Network
and streaming worldwide. It’s time to set the record straight on who Joe Berger2 is and how he put John Entwistle together with this group
which was already broken up and somehow between Joe Berger and John Entwistle they managed to keep them together enough to play
a short tour, even though they were fighting like babies off the stage (also on camera but I prefer not to show it) Mark Hitt did a fantastic job
on the guitar, Jack Hotop keyboards also outstanding, Steve Luongo played drums and was self-appointed tour manager which caused a lot of
problems in my humble opinion – Dave Chmela vocalist and Luongo are not even on speaking terms, a lot of things went wrong but this
documentary footage was early in the tour – the answer to Howard Stern’s question “Who is this Joe Berger” is right here folks!
Rock ’n Roll history, Bill Curbishly attended the K-Rock Blood Drive gig that kicked it off at The Bottom Line, after reporting back to Pete Townshend
about the gigs with John Entwistle and Rat Race Choir thanks to Joe Berger, Pete Townshend sent a telegram to John Entwistle​, John told me
that Peter said for him to stop playing with the American blokes or there would never be a Who reunion. A few weeks later The Who John Entwistle,
Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry went in to rehearsals and a subsequent reunion tour after a period of being on non-speaking terms.
So thanks to Joe Berger​ and in part myself after we brought the films to England and delivered them to John Entwistle at his London house
from the Vic Theatre gig and Dorian Gray Nightclub Frankfurt, John felt confident enough to fly over to New York and make the tour, this footage is directly out of
my camera folks, enjoy it and keep the Spirit of the late great John Entwistle who very sadly passed away on June 27, 2002 in Las Vegas NV
at the Hard Rock Hotel, RIP John Entwistle – sincerely, Jon Hammond​ – Next segment: Mike Vax Takes it Up an Octave at JEN 2016 Louisville Louisville, Kentucky!

“Quicksilver Quicksilver Messenger Service – Band​ manager Ron Polte dies in Mill Valley at 84″
” By Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal

Posted: 09/16/16, 5:53 PM PDT | Updated: 6 hrs ago

Ron Polte, who managed the psychedelic rock band Quicksilver Messenger Service and the all-female quintet the Ace of Cups during the glory days of the San Francisco Sound, died Wednesday at his longtime home in Mill Valley. He was 84.

Mr. Polte had been suffering from multiple health problems and had been under Hospice care since May, said his wife of 20 years, Sally Robert.

“He was a good man,” said Quicksilver band member David Freiberg, speaking by phone from Florida while on tour with the Jefferson Starship. “I could always trust him to do what he thought was right.”

Born on the south side of Chicago into a family of nine children, Mr. Polte had a tough childhood, but managed to turn his life around after being in and out of trouble with the law as a teenager, his wife said.

In Chicago, he became friends with blues singer-songwriter Nick Gravenites (“Born in Chicago,” “Buried Alive in the Blues”) when they were teenagers and followed him out to San Francisco in the early 1960s. They were the first of the Chicago blues crowd, including Mike Bloomfield, Elvin Bishop and Mark Naftalin of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, to relocate in the Bay Area, most of them settling in Marin and Sonoma counties.

In 1967, Mr. Polte took over management of Quicksilver and the Ace of Cups after their original manager, Ambrose Hollingworth, was seriously injured in a car crash near Muir Beach.

“When we needed somebody, there he was,” Freiberg said.

Quicksilver was the last of the San Francisco hippie bands to ink a major label deal when they signed with Capitol Records in late 1967.

“He took it slow and steady and wouldn’t take a deal if he didn’t think it was right,” Freiberg recalled. “It took a while, but we got a really good deal with Capitol.”

Mr. Polte was known as a dutiful and resourceful manager who did what he could to meet the needs of the young musicians in his bands. Freiberg remembered that when he and his Quicksilver bandmates were living together in a house in Mill Valley, they informed him of their desire to move onto a farm in the country with a barn where they could rehearse. Mr. Polte wasted no time making that wish come true.

“Within a week and a half, we were living on an old dairy farm in Olema,” Freiberg recalled, chuckling. “He really cared about making sure everybody was taken care of.”
Diane Vitalich of Novato, drummer for the Ace of Cups, recalled that when she and her bandmates needed transportation, Mr. Polte went to an auction of state vehicles at San Quentin and bought cars for all of them.

“He bought us five 1963 Dodge Darts,” she said. “They were all blue and all looked the same.”

During this time, Mr. Polte started Westpole, a booking agency that handled Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin, the Sons of Champlin and other seminal Bay Area rock groups.

He’s also credited with inspiring the name of the band Electric Flag, a short-lived supergroup formed by Bloomfield, Gravenites, keyboardist Barry Goldberg, bassist Harvey Brooks and drummer Buddy Miles. According to Gravenites, Quicksilver had somehow come into possession of a light-up electric flag after a gig at a veterans hall.

“He brought it over to where we were all living and rehearsing in Tam Valley,” he recalled. “We plugged it in and it lit up and started waving. We said, ‘Hey, look at that. Let’s call ourselves the Electric Flag.’”

Eventually, Mr. Polte escaped from the hard living and tumult of the music business, spending time on a remote lodge in the New Mexico wilderness owned by Frank Werber, the charismatic manager of the Kingston Trio and owner of the Trident, a legendary Sausalito restaurant.

Through it all, he never lost the values that defined the ‘60s generation in San Francisco.

“All the altruistic thinking that came out of that era he agreed with a thousand percent,” Gravenites said. “He remained a firm defender of all the idealism from those years.”

In addition to his wife, Mr. Polte is survived by two daughters, Pamela Polte of Sutter Creek, Amador County, and Patti Ann Lindecker of Chicago; two sons, Thomas Polte of Chicago and Jeremy Polte of Dunsmuir, Siskiyou County, and two sisters, Marilyn McMinn and Nancy Brunanchon of Pine Grove, Amador County.

A private memorial service is being planned. ”

*LINK: https://diva.sfsu.edu/collections/sfbatv/bundles/201631 **From KQED piece:

” KQED News report from 1969 featuring a press conference by
Tom Donahue (1928-75), who discusses the Wild West Rock Festival that was to have taken place in Golden Gate Park but was cancelled due to protests by locals. Donahue believes that even though the concert never happened, this was a positive experience for the San Francisco community. He states that: “We also felt that a great deal of the good things that have come out of the artistic community in this country have originated in San Francisco. That it’s a starting point. Thay may sound chauvanistic but I also think it’s the truth.” Ends with brief comments from another spokesman, who refers to the “unecessary and … unwarranted paranoia” that the Wild West project had to deal with. It is worth noting that Donahue was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 as a non-peformer, one of only three disc jockeys to receive that honor to date (2011).

Nick Gravenites
Nick Gravenites – Nick’s bio “Biography
According to author and pop music critic Joel Selvin, Gravenites is “the original San Francisco connection for the Chicago crowd.” Gravenites is credited as a “musical handyman” helping such San Francisco bands as Quicksilver Messenger Service and Janis Joplin’s first solo group, the Kosmic Blues Band.

Gravenites also worked extensively with John Cipollina after producing the first Quicksilver Messenger Service album. He and Cipollina formed the Nick Gravenites–John Cipollina Band which toured a lot in Europe.

Gravenites was also a songwriter for the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, which consisted of Elvin Bishop, Paul Butterfield, and Michael Bloomfield, then formed The Electric Flag with Butterfield guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Gravenites is also responsible for writing the score for The Trip, produced the music for the movie Steelyard Blues.

He produced the pop hit “One Toke Over the Line” for Brewer & Shipley and the album Right Place, Wrong Time for Otis Rush, for which he was nominated for a Grammy Award. Together with John Kahn, Gravenites produced the album ‘Not mellowed with Age’ by Southern Comfort. Over the years, Gravenites would often use pianist Pete Sears in his band “Animal Mind”, including on his 1980 Blue Star album on which Sears played keyboards and bass. They also played together in front of 100,000 people on Earth Day 1990 at Crissy Field, San Francisco. Sears also joined him for a tour of Greece.

He still performs live in northern California. Gravenites was inducted to the Blues Hall of Fame in 2003 for his song “Born In Chicago”. He recently toured with the Chicago Blues Reunion and a new Electric Flag Band.”
**Excerpted from Huffington Post about Julius Karpen: ” Barry Melton, lead guitarist for Country Joe & the Fish, was quoted: “Chet was the antithesis of Bill Graham. Chet didn’t really care about money. The music always came first.”

Julius Karpen, who later managed Big Brother, was present when Hart phoned Melton. To Karpen, it sounded like “bitching between friends.” He asked Melton, “Did Mickey call you to complain about that quote?” Melton replied, “Oh, that’s Mickey. If you’re friends with Mickey, you’re always sparring with Mickey.”

The most poetic eulogy for Chet was written by Allen Cohen, who had been the editor of the first psychedelic underground paper, the San Francisco Oracle: “…There were darkened skied and a storm about to strike. The women cried and danced in the streets while the good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye down by the dock of the Bay. The day Chet Helms died Golden Gate Park was filled with mourners all with flowers in their hair. Big Brother played on all seven hills while Janis smiled from the clouds singing you got a piece of my heart….”

Only, Cohen himself was already dead. He had written that eulogy in January 2000, when there was a false report in the Chronicle that Chet had died. Chet decided to have a combination wake and resurrection. He hired a hearse and a coffin and invited 200 guests. He was driven up to the Gold Coast Restaurant. The coffin was rolled into the restaurant and opened. Chet lay there with flowers and a cell phone on his chest. All of a sudden, the phone rang. Chet rose to answer it, then walked through the crowd, toasting the mourners and greeting the cameras.”

“Interview: Co-CEO Dr Andreas Sennheiser” credit: PSN Europe http://www.psneurope.com/interview-co-ceo-dr-andreas-sennheiser/

“Dr Andreas Sennheiser took over the running of his family business with his brother Daniel in May of 2013. In the three years since, the company has released some notable technology – but there have been some serious changes at the company along the way. In an wide-ranging and candid interview, Dave Robinson discovers what the young co-CEO thinks about the $50k Orpheus headphones, the restructuring of the company, the fiercely competitive marketplace and what gets him out of bed in a morning…

Let’s begin with AMBEO, your 3D, immersive audio concept.

Dr Andreas Sennheiser: At CES, we launched something we’ve been working on for the last 5-7 years: algorithms for ‘immersive audio’. When we started research, we thought it was going to be relevant: it was a gut feeling that what exists wasn’t good enough. While we did research on these algorithms, we didn’t know where it was going to go, but with big content providers such as Universal and Red Bull Media embarking in 360-degree video and immersive audio recordings in the last 12-18 months, suddenly a huge new world has opened up for us. So, we’ve started to compile all the technology into distinct solutions for recording, mixing, processing, playing back. And that’s what we showed with the AMBEO brand at CES [and NAMM and PL+S]. It’s the starting point of something we will develop with our customers.

We really are positioning ourselves to take advantage of whatever 3D format emerges, a format with a higher emotional impact. Many artists have said to us, the only way to really connect with the audience the way they want to is to play live – but if they had a format that captured that, so that users at home could listen to it in a way similar to actually being there, then they would have a higher engagement with the listeners. That’s when we got serious about bringing AMBEO to the market.

At NAMM you demonstrated a surround-style ‘tetra mic’, with its ‘virtual miking technique’ software, which could change the way things are recorded…

The interesting thing about this is that we have to combine different technologies in order to make the immersive experience perfect; to integrate different technologies to make the transition from reality to virtual reality seamless.

With third party involvement?

By presenting it in its initial stage, it’s an invitation to our customers to think ahead, whether that’s a possible approach for them, how they would use it, and to find new applications for it. It’s all software based at the moment – we have a virtualisation algorithm, an upmix algorithm – we don’t really have a hardware decoder at this point, but if we see a stronger need, we can go in that direction, too.

Let’s talk about Orpheus, the HE 1, the ‘world’s most expensive headphone’.

The HE 1 for us is a product, a statement, and an indication of our innovation culture, to a certain extent. We could have said, we still have the Orpheus from 1991, it’s still considered the best headphone in the world, why do something better? But part of our culture is to not be happy with anything that exists now, regardless of whether we invented it or not. About 10 years ago, we decided it was the time for the world to experience the next level. On one hand, it’s beyond common sense. But, on the other, by being so intensively on the limits of physics, we learn so much for other applications.

You make it sound like the Space Programme…

Yes, exactly, and this pushes the entire Sennheiser culture into new ways. Think about the effect this has at the company when a group of people bring out a flagship that will be there for another couple of decades. That has a huge motivational impact on the other employees; at the same time, it tells the industry that what exists is not good enough for Sennheiser, so we will push it forward.

I’ve heard the HE 1s. They make sound ‘visceral’, I would suggest.

People have ‘seen’ things, heard things which they haven’t heard before, or been able to describe.

Do you think they are worth $50,000?

[Immediately] Absolutely. No doubt.

What sort of reaction have you had to them?

A product like this is dividing: people who rave about it, others who say, Is it worth the money? But to me, it’s not the point: it’s about buying into an exclusivity which sets you apart, in a positive way, from the masses. It’s connoisseurship. From the feedback we’ve got, most of the customers who are interested in the HE 1 are audiophiles who say, Audio is my life.

The original Orpheus had a run of some 300 units. When HE 1 ships later this year, will that be limited to 300 too?

We are not planning any limitation this time: but it is limited by the price and the capacity – making one per day – and the level of customisation. We have significant requests for customised versions.

You mean I can have them in pink?

Someone wants it in solid jade instead of marble, for instance. The exclusivity includes the concept of a one-off product, as long as the sound properties are not affected.

How many do you think you’ll be making?

We have more than 50 ordered. I don’t believe it’s going to stop at 100 or 200. I personally believe that it’s something that’s going to be with you for life, and we will offer servicing on it so it will be with you as long as you want to enjoy it.

Turning to the other end of the market, consumer headphones: it’s an increasingly aggressive and crowded marketplace. What is Sennheiser doing there?

We’re trying to be more focused on specific target groups. With the Momentum line, for example, we are targeting a specific type of personality, people who have a certain style and way of expressing themselves. We’re not just looking at price points and shelf space, and that will set us apart from just having X metres of headphone hangers.

You put into place a ‘selective distribution’ model a couple of years ago – other makes have done that too…

It ensures that the brand is represented in the appropriate way. If [our models] were at a cash-and-carry checkout for five pounds [six euros], it would just damage the brand. You can’t credibly have a product like that and the HE 1.

Are you worried that brands like Beats are changing the market?

It’s not necessarily a concern – it is, rather, keeping us on our toes. That increasingly competitive environment was beneficial in two ways: one, it grew the market; two, it forced us to think what Sennheiser is all about, what is at our core, what is our heritage. We’re the only ones to have the 1968 invention of the open-back HD 414 headphone; we’re the only one that has the innovation culture and heritage. How can we use that to be more relevant and have a higher value for the customer? So, with the success of the Momentum line, the higher end HD 800 line, the professional headphones – the HD 25 still being an icon – this process has been healthy for us because it gave us a stronger sense of identity which we are able to communicate.

How successful has the D9000 digital wireless system been?

It’s a huge success, especially in the last year where the ‘Digital Dividend’ [spectrum sell-off] in Japan gave us extra demand and business. Digital 9000 is successful beyond our initial imagination for a simple reason: we positioned and developed it as a system to be used on stage for singers and touring, because it was so flexible. But the corporate world has discovered it, because of its high-level encryption and flexibility in use. We saw a lot of companies adopt it, such as a major American retail chain. There’s a huge market there.

Since you and your brother Daniel became joint CEOs three years ago, you’ve restructured the company. I get the impression, some of that has been easy, and some of it has been hard. Is that correct?

We went from a territorial approach to a sales channel approach. In Europe, there’s no borders for commerce. Consumer is one part, professional is another, and so on.

In a reorganisation like that, you always have a working assumption. Sometimes you assume, sometimes you just hope for the best. The reorganisation was a great success, especially with the feedback we got from our customers. Did everything work out like we planned? With a change of that magnitude, we discovered things we had to fine-tune. That was a learning experience. For us it was more important to go in the direction that makes sense for the future rather than stay with something we know but might not be any longer relevant.

Some of your ideas were quite radical: staff had to look at their roles within the company and say, this is what I do, and this is what I want to do…

You are spot on. We had hundreds of people in new roles, so there was an element of change management.

…Which can be difficult.

Absolutely! And I have empathy with people who are uncertain for a period, who have to find their role and it’s not all clear from Day One. But part of our culture is to go through changes with our employees, and that means everyone can design their future and their fate, which brings the downside of uncertainty with it.

But some people don’t want to do that.

Yes, but it’s part of our nature to involve people in their own destiny rather than giving them 100% certainty but no influence.

The impression I got from the staff video, made for the company’s 70th anniversary last year, is that your employees are pleased to be a part of the Sennheiser phenomenon. The smiles from the people in the factory were natural, not forced.

The passion and commitment, the joy of what we do is everywhere at Sennheiser. And that’s really part of my personal motivation. Seeing people committed to that extent gives me a reason to go forward.

Do you ever feel the burden of the family legacy, though? When you wake up, do you ever think, [in panicked voice] ‘Oh God, I’m running Sennheiser!’…?

[Smiling broadly] With great responsibility comes a certain weight. You have to think about what is good for the company, the customers, the employees. There are moments of doubt and pressure, but all-in-all, what makes me so confident of getting up in the morning is that I’m not alone here, there are 2,700 people who are highly committed and enjoy what they do. It’s not on my shoulders, it’s on 2,700 pairs of shoulders making their own destiny. With that in my mind, it’s easy to get up and assume that responsibility.

Good answer! What do you think you still need to do at the company?

Become quicker, more nimble to reacting to customer feedback.

Sennheiser seems to think about what it’s going to do, thinks some more, and then makes its move. It took you ages to adopt Dante, for instance. That approach can be positive – but negative too.

If 80% of our decisions are well-thought through and strategically directed, that’s exactly what we need. In hindsight, we could have taken some decisions earlier. On the other hand, ‘German engineering and thinking’ takes time. What our next challenge will be, is to preserve the thoroughness of where we want to go, but add an element of ‘start-up’ activity. A start-up culture with 70 years of experience, if you will. If we can do that, then we will be even quicker when supplying the customers with what they want.

Last question: the factory is on fire – you run in and grab three items. What are they?

First, the photo of my grandfather [Fritz Sennheiser, who started the company]. Second, the Emmy Award. [In 2013, Sennheiser was awarded the Philo T. Farnsworth Award, presented to a company whose “contributions over time have significantly impacted television technology and engineering”.] Third, my trolley, which holds all the stuff I use for daily work…

But which one product do you put on that trolley?

The D9000.

Not a classic microphone or headphone?

D9000 is a statement of innovation, and is ‘classic’ at the same time. It’s one of a kind. It’s an icon. It shows all the competency that’s in this company.

The company was founded in 1945, just a few weeks after the end of World War II, by Fritz Sennheiser (1912–2010)[2][3] and seven fellow engineers of the University of Hannover in a laboratory called Laboratorium Wennebostel (shortened, “Lab W”). The laboratory was named after the village of Wennebostel in the municipality of Wedemark to where it had been moved due to the war. Its first product was a voltmeter.[1] Lab W began building microphones in 1946 with the DM1, and began developing them in 1947 with the DM2. By 1955, the company had 250 employees, and had begun production of many products including but not limited to: geophysical equipment, the Noise-Compensated microphone (DM4), microphone transformers, mixers, and miniature magnetic headphones. Labor W was renamed ‘Sennheiser electronic’ in 1958.[citation needed]

In 1968, Sennheiser released the world’s first open headphones.[4] The introduction of open headphones affected the headphone market as they were able to produce a more natural sound that many users preferred.[5]

Sennheiser was transformed into a limited partnership (KG) in 1973. In 1980, the company entered the aviation market, supplying Lufthansa with headsets.[6][7]

The company began producing modern wireless microphones in 1982, the same year when founder Fritz Sennheiser handed the management of the company over to his son, Jörg Sennheiser. In 1987, Sennheiser was awarded at the 59th Academy Awards for its MKH 816 shotgun microphone.

Also in 1991, Georg Neumann GmbH, Berlin, which builds studio microphones, became a part of Sennheiser.[8][9]

In 1996, Sennheiser received an Emmy Award for its advancements in RF wireless technology.[10] Also in 1996, Sennheiser became a private limited company (GmbH and Co. KG). Since then, Sennheiser has maintained its tradition of high quality audio technology, and still maintains those high standards today. Professor Dr. Fritz Sennheiser died in 2010.

On July 1, 2013, Daniel Sennheiser and Andreas Sennheiser were promoted to the position of CEO responsible for Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG.[11]

In October 2013, Sennheiser received the prestigious Philo T. Farnsworth Award at the 65th Primetime Emmy®Engineering Awards in Hollywood.[12] In May 2014, Sennheiser founded a new competence center for innovative streaming solutions, Sennheiser Streaming Technology GmbH (SST).
