Hey Jon we met when you were on holidays at the gold coast, australia... I paddled across the seaway bar by surfboard. You were so fascinated by this and we spoke about the great duke kahanamoku :) I did not realise you made music and played, I play guitar myself... maybe ill learn one or two.... of your songs. keep playing dude i want to hear more! All the best.

Jon...thanks so much for your Lou Columbo video and your retro taples. It is a sad day to learn of Lou's passing. Your video is the way I like to remember him. We were at the Roadhouse Cafe in Fort Myers just a couple of weeks ago when he was playing.

Love your radio show on 1550 am I just wish it was longer.A lot of these seem to be older shows. When you announce something coming up it's usually already been over for months. Please update your show schedule when you'll be in the Bay Area.Keep up the great music.

Mr. Hammond,
It was a real pleasure to hear you on your podcast air excerpts of an old radio friend of mine, Al Jazzbeau Collins. I flipped on the radio and there was the purple grotto all majubilatin'....with good ole Jazzbeau. I miss him dearly and thank you for airing the clips and speaking so nicely of him. You rock. Thanks again. Can I have an autograph pic?
Thanks and all the best...groove on.

Hi Jon....unfortunatley I can only listen to your music "live" once a year, that is when you are performing in Frankfurt and the Jazz-Keller and where I have spent a wonderful evening with fantastic emotions.
Great to see all your new efforts on the internet radio show...complimenti!

Dude! Man, I'm listening to HammondCast 6 as I write this, and it takes me back to NYC with a vengeance! If I close my eyes, it's 3am at Kenny's Castaways; I'm gonna be real tired at work tomorrow, and you and Barry and Joe and all the great cats are just making my life sonic bliss! Nobody can make a B3 sing like you do!! You are a gift to the world of jazz!

Hey Jon, Got your message on our answering machine the other day. Good to hear your voice and to know you are keeping busy & spreading good musical vibes. I'm married- 4 kids- 3 still at home. I've drifted away from my own music recently, but I may consider trying it again as other job issues may make a change necessary. If so, I may need some tips from you. Great article on some of your activities and exploits. Your mom sounds real proud of how hard you work and what you are doing. Great web site. Take care.

Viele Grüsse aus der Stadt von W.A.Mozart, Salzburg - Österreich, I´m sure, Mozart would have written music for a Hammond organ, if he had one, and Jon would have been his first organist. Next year in Salzburg are big festivals for Mozarts 250th Birthday, and I hope to hear you again at Mozarts Birth Place, Salzburg. And when you here again, forget your "Excelsior" and try a "Steirische Ziach"
