Oahu Hawaii — 1976 my first trip to Hawaii, we rented a Rolls Royce and had a nice picnic with friends who were working on the Don Ho TV Show on ABC – Jon Hammond

“Celebrity guests
Honey’s became a happening place on Oahu, with other Hawaiian musicians stopping in for jam sessions. Ho began to play at various spots at Hawaii, and soon, he was packing places such as the Coconut Grove in Hollywood and the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.
Stars such as Lucille Ball, Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra were known to be in the audience for Ho’s shows.
Ho also became a television star, and hosted the “The Don Ho Show” on ABC from 1976-77.”..

Hamamatsu Japan — i-Real demo is un-real! (by Toyota)
future is now – – Jon Hammond
Personal mobility that expands opportunities to meet “REAL” people, enjoy nature, and make traveling freer, more fun, and more comfortable.

The new personal mobility i-REAL was developed with the intention of increasing opportunities to enjoy encounters with a variety of people and objects by enabling movement. Development of this new type of mobility was unconstrained by conventional car manufacturing concepts.
The i-REAL was developed in order to decrease the environmental impact and energy consumption associated with individual daily travels. It runs on electricity up to 30 kilometers (approx. 18.6 miles) per charge. It is a three-wheeled vehicle, with two wheels in the front and one in the back, and is capable of switching driving modes between walking mode and cruising mode.

Hammond Jr. – Youth Organ rocks! Jon Hammond
Product Description
The Hammond organ youth!

The contents are it-oriented in earnest in appearance though they are pretty!
It is with nine draw bars, percussion function and can give surprisingly real organ sound! Even if a keyboard becomes insufficient, there is no problem if I connect it to the keyboard that there is much number of more keyboards because MIDI IN is carried!
To Hammond square, 259 tones have sound effects to be usable in a drama or a picture-story show built-in.
It is the keyboard which anyone can enjoy from “an adult to a child”♪
14 ensemble tones that it was selected carefully.
It “is great that but children play that I want to add a wind instrument to an instrumental ensemble”…Hammond square solves such a trouble. I can play the tone of the base musical instrument that a musical performance musical instrument and the sum musical instrument of the performance hard to please, transportation are great with a keyboard easily, and width of the ensemble opens.
In the tone that I repeat a draw bar tone, and is solid.
Can put the draw bar tone on a bus tone and an ensemble tone, and the thickness of the sound increases, and is solid; sound. When the harmonic overtone ingredient of the Hammond organ is piled up, each sound becomes rich.
It is equipped with a tone of the bus master. I can use it as a base musical instrument to be able to carry.
When a low tone was solid, was solid-looking, and the ensemble was finished; is played. Therefore I will use Hammond square as a base musical instrument. I connect Hammond square to a base amplifier and a keyboard amplifier, and it is changed quickly by a base musical instrument when I utilize a bus master tone and a bus tone. Ensemble becomes a more substantial thing.
A sound source: VASEIII,128bit
The number of the biggest simultaneous pronunciation: 48 sound
A keyboard: 37 key (3 C scale octaves) standard keyboards
A tone: Ensemble tone 14 (piano, エレピ strings synthesizer strings harp chorus synthesizer pad flute clarinet trumpet horn music box, koto, samisen)

Jon Hammond speaking with Neil Portnow, President of NARAS – in Hollywood CA at ASCAP Expo
Neil’s Wiki Neil R. Portnow (born 1948, New York City) is the current president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). Portnow was formerly the vice-president of the West Coast division of Jive Records.
Portnow grew up in Great Neck, New York. He played bass guitar in a high school rock band, The Savages,[1] who released a 45rpm record “Cheating on me”/”Best thing you ever had”[2] on Red Fox Records that did not achieve serious commercial success, but was subsequently included in a compilation of garage bands.[3]
He graduated from The George Washington University in 1971.[4] He started out as a record producer and music supervisor. He worked with RCA Records as staff producer, as vice-president of A&R at Arista and EMI America . He was senior vice-president and then president at 20th Century Records.
He started working with Jive Records in 1989. He oversaw the expansion of their West Coast operation, making Jive a groundbreaking, successful label. Jive thrived under his leadership as Vice-President of the West Coast division and spearheaded the careers of some of the biggest acts of the late 1990s and early 2000s. He worked alongside Jive’s president Clive Calder who ran Jive’s parent company, the Zomba Label Group.
Portnow worked as music supervisor on three films: Permanent Record (1988), A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989), and Wired (1989), in which he also appeared briefly as a bandleader.
