Frankfurt am Main — Jon Hammond at the Treble Clef sculpture at Horst-Lippmann-Platz by the Kleine Bockenheimerstrasse
Sculpture Black Clef, created by Taro Miyabe in 1982, at the Horst-Lippmann-Platz in Frankfurt am Main
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 at dusk – Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Beach,_San_Francisco

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.”

This marks the 20th anniversary of this wonderful concert, yes it was 20 years ago folks! Incredible playing by these musicians – Francoise Pujol who is my personal favorite pianist in France today – Jazz and Classical. Along with her emerging star musicians: Bassist Richard Bona the phenom bass player born in Cameroon and now living in Brooklyn, and the very tasteful drumming (and sometimes explosive!) of Francis Lassus of Paris.
S’il vous plaît profiter de cette radio France Inter concert présenté par Jon Hammond.
Les gens l’attention de New York: Françoise Pujol et sa bande seront en provenance de Paris pour jouer 2 concerts le 8 Septembre et le 10, je suis honoré d’être un invité spécial lors d’une partie de son concert d’orgue Hammond avec Françoise et sa bande.

ANDRE FRANCIS, MONSIEUR JAZZ
http://www.franceculture.fr/emission-mythologie-de-poche-de-la-radio-andre-francis-monsieur-jazz-2011-08-23

Il y a un peu plus d’un an, dans Les Passagers de la nuit, on pouvait entendre Les Mythologies de poche de la radio, petits et grands dialogues autour des archives et considérations radiophoniques… Nous vous proposons cet été 25 nouvelles Mythologies de poche de la radio pour donner à entendre la radio et ceux qui la font.
Nous recevons aujourd’hui André Francis, homme de radio, producteur et programmateur de concerts et de festivals.
50 ans de jazz, et plus encore. André Francis commence à parler de jazz à St Germain des prés, quelque temps après la Libération, au Club d’Essai de la Radiodiffusion. Il ne cessera jamais, même après sa retraite. On l’entend ce soir, en pleine forme, et dans ses archives, parfois en compagnie de Boris Vian lui-même. Et on apprendra aussi comment André Francis a fait changer ses propositions sur les ondes, selon les évolutions du jazz : free, cool, hard bop… On finit l’émission par un morceau d’anthologie enregistré en 1964 par André Francis et son équipe à Juan-les-Pins en plein air, où Ella Fitzgerald a maille à partir avec un criquet !

La grande Histoire du jazz (5/5) avec André Francis
André Francis, qui a été pendant plusieurs décennies le “Monsieur Jazz” de Radio France (sur France Inter et France Musique), occupe intelligemment sa retraite : il vient de concocter en 100 CD (125 heures d’écoute…) une “Grande Histoire du Jazz” couvrant le premier demi-siècle de cette musique.
Publiée en 4 coffrets de 25 CD couvrant chacun une période cohérente de l’histoire du jazz, cette “encyclopédie” s’avère passionnante par la pertinence subjective de ses choix et les textes qui les accompagnent.

Pour l’occasion, André Francis est invité à passer cette semaine de fête avec nous pour commenter lui-même ses choix au micro d’Open Jazz.

Une ballade amoureuse autour de quelques chefs d’œuvres du jazz.

Merci Beaucoup George Whitman Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris December 12, 1913 – December 14, 2011 from Jon Hammond

12/15/2011 New York, NY — R.I.P. George Whitman founder of Shakespeare & Co. Book Shop in Paris, I shot this photo of George’s best friend Lawrence Ferlinghetti the Poet in front of George’s shop when I met him and Lawrence on my first journey to Paris 1981. The child is George’s daughter Sylvia, she is grown up now and runs the shop, she will carry on for George there in St. Michel Paris – Jon Hammond *note: thanks / merci beaucoup for all the great Sunday teas 4PM-6PM I attended at your apartment when I was living in Paris George! JH

Photo by Jon Hammond – Lawrence Ferlinghetti and young Sylvia Whitman in front of Shakespeare & Company book shop in St. Michel Paris with umbrella, photo by Jon Hammond circa 1981:

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

Whitman founded his bookstore in 1951 and named it Le Mistral, then later named it after Sylvia Beach’s earlier Paris bookstore “Shakespeare and Company”.[3] His shop, located at 37 rue de la Bûcherie in Paris, was opened in August 1951 (two years before a sister bookshop City Lights was opened in San Francisco by Lawrence Ferlinghetti) by George Whitman with an inheritance from his aunt. He called the shop “Le Mistral” after his first French girlfriend. From the very first night he allowed travellers, young writers, poets and artists to lodge in exchange for a hand in cleaning the shop, building shelves and selling books. Sylvia Beach, whose famous shop was on 12, rue de l’Odéon, was still in Paris and came to Le Mistral to see the writers of the new generation, whom Anaïs Nin called Xerox artists,[citation needed] read aloud their new work. Whitman modeled his shop after Sylvia Beach’s. As it was the only free English-language lending library in Paris, the Beats who arrived at the Beat Hotel on rue Git-le-Coeur quickly found their way to the small bookshop and made a place for themselves there. In 1962, Sylvia Beach died, willing to Whitman a good deal of her private books and the rights to the name Shakespeare and Company. In 1964, Le Mistral was renamed Shakespeare and Company. Whitman named his daughter, born in 1981, after his bibliophilic predecessor; Sylvia Whitman took over the running of the shop in 2003 at age 22.[4]
Whitman allowed young travellers to stay in the residential quarters of his rue de la Bûcherie premises (specifically published writers); and one was also encouraged to read a book a day during your stay and were asked for two hours work as contribution to the running of the shop. All Whitman asked of his guests is to provide a short “biography” and photograph and work a short period in the shop. On Sunday mornings he traditionally cooked his guests a pancake breakfast, brewing up a thin ersatz “syrup” out of some burnt sugar and water.
Whitman began to receive international notice when a documentary titled Portrait of a Bookstore as an Old Man, by Gonzague Pichelin and Benjamin Sutherland, ran on The Sundance Channel in fall 2005. At the end of the film, Whitman trimmed his hair using the flame of a candle, set his hair on fire, and then doused it.
On Wednesday, September 26, 2007, journalist Gerry Hadden’s story on George Whitman, his daughter Sylvia, and Shakespeare & Company aired on NPR’s The World (a co-production of the BBC, Public Radio International (PRI), and the Boston radio station WGBH).[5][6]
[edit]Death

Whitman died on December 14, 2011, at age 98, at home in the apartment above his bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, in Paris. He will be buried in the Père Lachaise cemetery in the east of Paris.

Jazzbo leads the famous call and response based on the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. In one scene some obviously very bad banditos try to pass themselves off to Bogart as federales (police). Humphrey Bogart’s character knows they are not federales but nevertheless asks to see some badges. The bandito-in-charge responds “Badges?! I don’t got no badges. We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinkin’ badge.”

Hannover Germany — Jon Hammond with Kenny Burrell
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenny_Burrell

Kenneth Earl “Kenny” Burrell (born July 31, 1931) is an American jazz guitarist. His playing is grounded in bebop and blues; he has performed and recorded with a wide range of jazz musicians.
Burrell was born in Detroit, Michigan to a musical family and began playing guitar at the age of 12. His influences as a guitar player include Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, and Wes Montgomery. While a student at Wayne State University, he made his debut recording as a member of Dizzy Gillespie’s sextet in 1951, later he recorded the “Ground Round” single at Fortune Records in Detroit. He toured with Oscar Peterson after graduating in 1955 and then moved to New York City in 1956.[1]
A consummate sideman, Burrell recorded with a wide range of prominent musicians. He also led his own groups since 1951 and recorded many well received albums.[1]
In the 1970s he began leading seminars about music, particularly Duke Ellington’s. A highly popular performer, he has won several jazz polls in Japan and the United Kingdom as well as the United States.
He has recorded about 106 albums, including Midnight Blue (1963), Blue Lights, Guitar Forms, Sunup To Sundown (1990), Soft Winds (1993), Then Along Came Kenny (1993), and Lotus Blossom (1995).
In 2001, Burrell performed “C Jam Blues” with Medeski, Martin & Wood for the Red Hot Organization’s compilation album Red Hot + Indigo, a tribute to Duke Ellington, which raised money for various charities devoted to increasing AIDS awareness and fighting the disease.
As of 1996, Burrell has served as Director of Jazz Studies at UCLA, mentoring such notable alumni as Gretchen Parlato and Kalil Wilson.[2] Burrell teaches a course titled “Ellingtonia”, examining the life and accomplishments of Duke Ellington. — with Kenny Burrell at Hannover

Hamburg St. Pauli Germany — The DOM is Open / zu öffnen!
Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamburger_Dom

The Hamburger Dom[1] is a large funfair held in Hamburg, at Heiligengeistfeld fair ground, in Northern Germany. With three fairs (spring, summer and winter) per year it is the biggest and the longest fair throughout Germany. It attracts approximately ten million visitors annually.[citation needed] This Volksfest (lit. peoples fair) is a funfair. It is located in the center of Hamburg on the Heiligengeistfeld.
[edit]History

A market in or in front of Hamburg’s Cathedral (German: Hamburger Dom) was first recorded in 1329, at the beginning only in special seasons like Christmas. With the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century the fair was also held at other times. After the demolition of the cathedral (1804–1807), the market was held on the Gänsemarkt (geese market) in 1804, but kept the name Dom. Since 1892, the funfair was held at Heiligengeistfeld (lit. field of the Holy Spirit) and the name was used for all fairs in the area.[2]
Winterdom or Dommarkt (winter fair or cathedral market): 30 days in late autum
Sommerdom or Hummelfest (summer fair or Hummel market):[3] since 1947: 31 days during summer
Frühlingsdom (spring fair): since 1948, 30 days in spring
[edit]References

^ The German term Dom (Italian: Duomo) is the synecdoche, used – pars pro toto – for most persisting or former collegiate churches and cathedrals alike. Therefore the uniform translation of this term into English as cathedral is correct in this case, but in many other cases it is inappropriate.

New York NY — Carnegie Delicatessen, this is the last place I ran in to Bill Graham R.I.P. It was about 3 in the morning, Bill loved the Corned Beef there! I also met Milton Berle there. Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnegie_Deli

The Carnegie Deli is a restaurant located in midtown Manhattan on 7th Avenue between 54th and 55th Streets and was opened in 1937 adjacent to Carnegie Hall. Now in the third generation of owners, the Parker family’s delicatessen is among the most visited restaurants of its type in the city, according to the New York Convention & Visitors Bureau. USA Today has called the restaurant the “most famous” deli in the United States.[1] It is operated by Sandy Levine, whose business card indicates he is the “MBD” = Married Boss’s Daughter, namely, Marian Parker.

A corned beef sandwich from the Carnegie Deli.
The restaurant offers pastrami, corned beef and other sandwiches containing at least one pound (0.45 kg) of meat, as well as traditional Jewish fare such as matzoh ball soup, potato pancakes, chopped chicken livers, and smoked salmon. The restaurant also offers other, non-Jewish (or at least non-kosher) food such as ham, sausage, and bacon. Available for order are cheesecake portions of over a pound per serving. The restaurant’s motto is: “If you can finish your meal, we’ve done something wrong”. In addition to the large servings, the restaurant is also known for its surly waiters, who allegedly try to impart some of the stereotypical gruffness of New York to visitors.
The Carnegie Deli was the favorite hangout of comedian Henny Youngman, and Adam Sandler included a reference to the deli in “The Chanukah Song” in 1996. The walls of the deli are nearly completely covered with autographed pictures of celebrities who have eaten there. Menu items have been named after famous patrons, including a corned beef and pastrami sandwich named after Woody Allen after the deli served as a filming location for Broadway Danny Rose. A number of items on the menu feature Broadway themes and Yiddish vocabulary, including dishes like “nosh, nosh, Nanette” (after the musical, “No, No, Nanette”) and “the egg and oy” (“The Egg and I”). There are also some humorous items in the menu, like the famous liver sandwich named “50 Ways to Love Your Liver” after the Paul Simon song “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.” It is a place many reporters in the city frequent, including staffers from Black Rock (aka the CBS Building) like Bob Simon.
Owner Milton Parker, who died in 2009, had written a book (with Allyn Freeman) called How to Feed Friends and Influence People: The Carnegie Deli, providing the history of the family’s ownership. The book is sold at the cashier’s station.

A Reuben sandwich from the Carnegie Deli.
The deli opened several branch locations in the 1980s, including two New Jersey branches in Secaucus and Atlantic City and one in the Washington DC suburbs in Tysons Corner.[2] However, most of these branches have since closed and are no longer in operation. One, in Beverly Hills, California, was financed by oil billionaire Marvin Davis and designed by restaurant designer Pat Kuleto at a cost of $4 million to be the “best deli in the world,” in response to Davis’ complaint that the delis in California were not as good as those in New York.[3]
Currently, the deli operates a second location in Las Vegas, Nevada, which opened at The Mirage in 2005. A third location opened in 2006 at the Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey and serves as the “healthy choice” restaurant at the park; however, the menu is smaller and only has the restaurant’s most popular items. A fourth deli, limited to corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, is at Foxwoods Resort Casino. The fifth location is at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and opened November 22, 2009.
In addition to the retail operation, the restaurant sells cheesecakes and merchandise such as t-shirts and baseball caps online — at Carnegie Delicatessen & Restaurant

New York NY — Ed Sullivan Theatre – CBS Studios for LATE SHOW with David Letterman, featuring Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra – Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Sullivan_Theatre (Theatre/Theater…go figure!):

The Ed Sullivan Theater, located at 1697-1699 Broadway between West 53rd and West 54th, in Manhattan,[1] is a venerable radio and television studio in New York City. The 1200-seat theater — of which 461 seats are used for TV audiences — has been used as a venue for live and taped CBS broadcasts since 1936.[2]
It is best known as the longtime home of The Ed Sullivan Show and the site of the first U.S. Beatles performance. Since 1993, it has been the home of the Late Show with David Letterman and is on the list of National Register of Historic Places. The interior has been designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The 13-story, brown brick and terra cotta office building[3] with a ground-floor theater was designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp.[1] It was built by Arthur Hammerstein between 1925 and 1927,[1] and was named Hammerstein’s Theater after his father, Oscar Hammerstein I. The original neo-Gothic interior contained pointed-arch stained-glass windows with scenes from the elder Hammerstein’s operas; during a 1993 renovation, these windows were removed and stored by CBS in an arrangement with the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.[3] Its first production was the three-hour musical Golden Dawn, the second male lead of which was Cary Grant, then still using his birth name, Archie Leach.[3] Arthur Hammerstein went bankrupt in 1931, and lost ownership of the building.[3]
It later went by the name Manhattan Theater, Billy Rose’s Music Hall, and the Manhattan once again.[citation needed] In the 1930s, it became a nightclub.[citation needed] After CBS obtained a long-term lease on the property, the radio network began broadcasting from there in 1936, moving in broadcast facilities it had leased at NBC Studios in Radio City.[3] Architect William Lescaze renovated the interior, keeping nearly all of the Krapp design but covering many walls with smooth white panels, his work earning praise from the magazine Architectural Forum.[3] The debut broadcast was the Major Bowes Amateur Hour.[3] The theater had various names during the network’s tenancy, including Radio Theater #3 and the CBS Radio Playhouse.[citation needed] It was converted for television in 1950, when it became CBS-TV Studio 50.[citation needed] In the early and mid-Fifties, the theater played host to many of the live telecasts of The Jackie Gleason Show.
Newspaper columnist and impresario Ed Sullivan, who had started hosting his variety show Toast of the Town, soon renamed The Ed Sullivan Show, from the Maxine Elliott Theatre (CBS Studio 51) on West 39th Street in 1948, moved to Studio 50 a few years later. The theater was renamed for Sullivan at the beginning of the 1967-68 season, though it is still TV Studio 50 in CBS’ numerical list of New York television facilities.[4]
In the 1960s, Studio 50 was one of CBS’ busiest stages not only for Sullivan’s program but also for The Merv Griffin Show,[5] as well as several game shows. In 1965, Studio 50 was converted to color, and the first color episode of The Ed Sullivan Show originated from the theater on October 31, 1965. (The program originated from CBS Television City in color for the previous six weeks while the color equipment was installed. One earlier color episode of the program originated from Studio 72 at Broadway and 81st on August 22, 1954.[6]) What’s My Line?, To Tell the Truth and Password also called the studio home after CBS began broadcasting regularly in color; previously, they had been taped around the corner at CBS-TV Studio 52, which later became the disco Studio 54. The first episode of regular color telecasts of What’s My Line? was broadcast live on September 11, 1966.[citation needed] Line and Truth remained at Studio 50 even after they moved from CBS to first-run syndication in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The programs eventually moved to NBC’s Radio City Studios at Rockefeller Center.[citation needed]
The Ed Sullivan Theater was also the first home for The $10,000 Pyramid, with its huge end-game board set at the rear of the stage, in 1973. Other short-lived game shows produced at the Ed included Musical Chairs with singer Adam Wade (1975), Shoot For The Stars with Geoff Edwards (1977) (which was an NBC show), and Pass the Buck with Bill Cullen (1978).
The CBS lease on the building expired in 1981[5] and, now a Reeves Entertainment teletape facility, it hosted the sitcom Kate & Allie, which ran from 1984 to 1989 (as it happened, on CBS). In 1990 David Niles/1125 Productions signed onto the lease, with the theater to house his HDTV studio and new Broadway show Dreamtime. On October 17, 1992 an NBC special celebrating Phil Donahue’s 25 years on television taped in the theater. In February 1993, during Dreamtime’s successful run, [1] CBS bought the building from Winthrop Financial Associates of Boston. Niles was given four weeks to vacate. Due to the economics of moving the show and the lack of a comparable available Broadway theater, Dreamtime closed. The quick sale and vacancy of the building earned the realtor the Henry Hart Rice Achievement Award[7] for the Most Ingenious Deal of the Year for 1993.[8]
[edit]The Late Show

The Ed Sullivan Theater in 2007.
When David Letterman switched networks from NBC to CBS, CBS bought the theater in February 1993 for $4 million from Winthrop Financial Associates of Boston.[9] The theater was reconfigured into a 461-seat studio, with lighting and sound adjustments. The architectural firm that did the work, Polshek Partnership, notes on its web site that “to preserve the architectural integrity of the landmark, all interventions are reversible.”[10]
In 2005, it took nearly four months to retrofit the theater with the cabling and equipment necessary to broadcast high definition television.[citation needed]
Near the beginning of the first Letterman show in the fall of 1993, a quick reference was made to Sullivan’s legacy, by splicing together several short clips of Sullivan introducing various acts, including, presumably, the singing group The Lettermen. This resulted in a fake clip of Sullivan saying, “And now, here on our stage… David… Letterman!” Letterman also joked that his crew opened an old closet in the theater which contained a 45-year old woman screaming, “Ringo!”
[edit]Other uses

The Ed Sullivan Theater also serves as the home of the Survivor reunion at the conclusion of each even numbered season beginning with season six (The Amazon). The theater also hosted marquee-top concerts by a few artists, including Phish in 2004, and Sir Paul McCartney in 2009. On July 15, 2002, Dave Matthews Band performed on the roof of the building, the day before the release of their latest album “Busted Stuff”. On June 22, 2010, the theater’s roof was used once again, serving as the site of a concert featuring Eminem and Jay-Z. The theater also served as an emergency Back-up stage for The Rosie O’Donnell Show for a week of shows in October 1996 when a handful of Studios at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center headquarters experienced complications from an electrical fire. — at Ed Sullivan Theater

New York NY — Port Authority Bus Station Lanes from Lincoln Tunnel – Here they come! (and go) special lanes leading to and from Port Authority from Lincoln Tunnel going in to the State of New Jersey – Jon Hammond
http://www.panynj.gov/bridges-tunnels/lincoln-tunnel.html

Soon after the Port Authority of NY & NJ acquired the Holland Tunnel in 1930, New York and New Jersey authorized the agency to proceed with its plan to build what was then called the Midtown Hudson Tunnel. Creating a 1.5-mile-long structure, even above ground, would be no small accomplishment, but to build it under a riverbed was a monumental task. Hundreds of huge iron rings, each weighing 21 tons, had to be assembled and bolstered together on-site to form the lining of the tunnel.

The work of the sandhogs—as workers who dig tunnels are still colloquially known—was dangerous, claustrophobic and tedious. Just entering and exiting the tunnel was time-consuming. Crews entered air locks, one at a time, after which the doors at each end were sealed. An air pipe started hissing, and the men’s ears would pop as the air pressure climbed until it equaled that of the adjoining lock. The workers were then able to safely open the connecting door and crowd into the next section, where the entire ordeal would be repeated. Once at the forward end of the tunnel, the men had to work swiftly because they could handle the pressure only briefly. Compression and decompression had to be reached in safe, short increments.

Inside the tunnel, rock drills roared, tram cars rattled back and forth and air lines hissed as the shield pushed the tunnel forward until it could be braced like the hull of a ship. Through this din, men bolted rings into place, poured cement behind the new lining to seal out the river, prepared for the next shove, and dynamited in front of the shield when the going got tough.

While one crew worked from the Jersey side, another proceeded toward them from the New York side. Alignment of both ends vertically and horizontally took considerable engineering skill and care. The first “hole through” was achieved on August 3, 1935, when a hydraulic engineer in the New Jersey end was pushed by his feet through an opening to meet the New York crew.

The first tube of the Lincoln Tunnel-the center tube-opened to traffic two years later, on December 22, 1937. The north and south tubes opened on February 1, 1945, and May 25, 1957, respectively.

On December 18, 1970, the Port Authority of NY & NJ opened the Exclusive Bus Lane (XBL), a 2.5-mile contra-flow bus lane that travels along NJ Route 495 leading from the NJ Turnpike to the Lincoln Tunnel (LT). When opened, the XBL was the first contra-flow bus lane on a freeway in the United States, and it led to the later implementation of several similar operations here and in other states. Each weekday morning, the 2.5-mile XBL dedicates a westbound travel lane to eastbound buses, essentially making the Lincoln Tunnel a mass-transit facility for morning commuters. The XBL serves over 1,700 buses a day, carrying more than 62,000 passengers to midtown Manhattan every weekday morning.

E-ZPass, an electronic form of toll collection, was first introduced at the Lincoln Tunnel on October 28, 1997.

The Port Authority of NY & NJ continues to operate and maintain this facility, while seeking new and innovative ways to process an ever-increasing volume of traffic safely and more efficiently. Future plans include the rehabilitation of the “Helix,” the series of entry ramps to the tunnel on the New Jersey side. — at Lincoln Tunnel.

“FRANCE HONORS MUSICIAN
ANGELIQUE KIDJO
WITH THE ORDER OF ARTS AND LETTERS

New York, May 6, 2011—On Wednesday, May 11, Antonin Baudry, Cultural Counselor of the Embassy of France, will confer upon internationally acclaimed artist, Angélique Kidjo, the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters for her musicianship, her dedication to humanitarian causes, and, more generally, for her efforts to further the arts in France and throughout the world.

Born in the West African city of Ouidah, in Benin, Mrs. Kidjo grew up during the 1960’s, a radical period of change across the African continent. She released her first album at age 20 with the help of her brother and went on to pursue music in Paris, first at Les Ateliers-Chansons (The Song Studios) and then at CIM (school of jazz and contemporary music).

Today, she has become an influential musician on a global scale, known for her dynamic performances and diverse musical influences, which range from Congolese rumba and Afro-pop, to jazz, gospel, and Latin styles. Her numerous projects include collaborations with musicians such as Bono, Peter Gabriel, Carlos Santana, Ziggi Marley, Alicia Keys, Dianne Reeves, Josh Groban, Herbie Hancock, and Youssou N’Dour. She has received countless awards from around the globe for her musical merits including a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Music Album in 2008 and the French Grand Prix de la SACEM (Grand Prize from SACEM) in 2010.

Among her many notable humanitarian achievements, Mrs. Kidjo is a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. She founded The Batonga Foundation in 2007 to support secondary school and higher education for girls in Africa. She also composed the song, “You Can Count on Me”, for the launch of UNICEF’s 2009 campaign to eliminate tetanus.

The Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Letters) was created in 1957 to recognize eminent artists and writers, as well as individuals who have contributed to the recognition of French culture in the world. The Order is given out twice annually to only a few hundred people worldwide. Several Americans have received the award, including Paul Auster, Ornette Coleman, Agnes Gund, Marilyn Horne, Jim Jarmusch, Richard Meier, Robert Paxton, Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, and Uma Thurman”

The famous Oscar Mayer Wienermobile photo by Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wienermobile
“Wienermobile” is an automobile shaped like a hot dog on a bun that is used to promote and advertise Oscar Mayer products. It was created in 1936 by Oscar’s nephew, Carl G. Mayer, and variants are still used by Oscar Mayer today. In 2004, Oscar Mayer announced a contest whereby customers could win the right to use the Wienermobile for a day. Within a month, the contest had generated over 15,000 entries.[citation needed] Drivers of the Wienermobiles are known as Hotdoggers and often hand out toy whistles shaped as replicas of the Wienermobile, known as Wienerwhistles. *Note: Jon Hammond owns an original Wienerwhistle given to him by Oscar when Jon was 5 years old in 1958

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has evolved from Carl Mayer’s original 1936 vehicle to the current vehicles seen on the road today. Although gas rationing kept the Wienermobile off the road during World War II, in the 1950s Oscar Mayer and the Gerstenslager Company created several new vehicles using a Dodge chassis or a Willys Jeep chassis. One of these models is on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. These Wienermobiles were piloted by “Little Oscar” who would visit stores, schools, orphanages, children’s hospitals, and participate in parades and festivals.

In 1969, new Wienermobiles were built upon a Chevrolet motor home chassis and featured Ford Thunderbird taillights. The 1969 vehicle was the first Wienermobile to travel to foreign countries. In 1976 Plastic Products, inc., built a fiberglass and styrofoam model, again on a Chevrolet motor home chassis.

In 1988, Oscar Mayer launched its Hotdogger program, where recent college graduates were hired to drive the Wienermobile through various parts of the nation and abroad. Using a converted Chevrolet van chassis, Stevens Automotive Corporation and noted industrial designer Brooks Stevens built a fleet of six Wienermobiles for the new team of Hotdoggers.

In 1995, the Wienermobile grew in size to 27-feet long and 11-feet high. The most recent version of the Wienermobile, built in 2004, has been updated to include a voice activated GPS navigation device, an audio center with a wireless microphone, and a horn that plays the Wiener Jingle in 21 different genres from Cajun to Rap to Bossa Nova, according to American Eats.

There are seven Wienermobiles in existence. The current Wienermobile sports fourth generation Pontiac Firebird taillights.
