Stevens bass, watch Leslie's face when smoke machine goes! Then a little bit of Bag End Party at Park West with Joe Berger, T.M. Stevens, Tal Bergman and Theodus Rogers. And of course JH Show Theme Song "Late Rent" - enjoy folks, this one is a classic!

This is some of the rare surviving footage from Mikell's, in the house that night all night long was Hugh Masekela, Cornell Dupree and many musicians as Mikell's was the traditional hang for all New York Studio Musicians until it's closing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikell's As seen on The Jon Hammond Show cable TV program now in 28th year Camera: Joe Berger R.I.P.

As you can see I took this photo when the Pan Am Building loomed in the background - now it is called MetLife Building http://www.panamair.org/History/building.htm "The Pan Am building at the foot of Park Avenue towered over the middle of Manhattan. It was finished in 1963 and was the largest commercial office building in the world. Atop this sky scrapper in 1963 NY Airways began offering helicopter service between Manhattan and New York’s three major airports. The building was later sold to Metropolitan life insurance" Grand Central Terminal Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Central_Terminal Grand Central Terminal (GCT)—colloquially called Grand Central Station, or shortened to simply Grand Central—is a commuter rail terminal station at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, United States. *WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: Ed Koch as seen on The Jon Hammond Show Downloaded 80 times Ed Koch at Diamond Vision Press Conference Times Square - Jon Hammond circa 1985 - Rest In Peace Ed Koch http://archive.org/details/JonHammondMayorEDKOCHonHammondCastDiamondVisionNY An incredible Press Conference with NY Mayor ED KOCH as seen on The Jon Hammond Show HammondCast in Times Square NYC on Mitsubishi DiamondVision!

KOCH, 1924-2013 Edward Koch, Former Mayor of New York, Dies Former New York City Mayor Edward I. Koch, on the subway in 1981, was known for his candor, as when he offered no excuses for litter or crime, but said, "It stinks." More Photos » By ROBERT D. McFADDEN Published: February 1, 2013 Edward I. Koch, the master showman of City Hall, who parlayed shrewd political instincts and plenty of chutzpah into three tumultuous terms as mayor of New York with all the tenacity, zest and combativeness that personified his city of golden dreams, died Friday morning at age 88. Mr. Koch’s spokesman, George Arzt, said the former mayor died at 2 a.m. from congestive heart failure. He was being treated at New York-Presbyterian Columbia Hospital. Mr. Koch had experienced coronary and other medical problems since leaving office in 1989. But he had been in relatively good health despite — or perhaps because of — his whirlwind life as a television judge, radio talk-show host, author, law partner, newspaper columnist, movie reviewer, professor, commercial pitchman and political gadfly. Ebullient, flitting from broadcast studios to luncheon meetings and speaking engagements, popping up at show openings and news conferences, wherever the microphones were live and the cameras rolling, Mr. Koch, in his life after politics, seemed for all the world like the old campaigner, running flat out. Only his bouts of illness slowed Mr. Koch down, most recently forcing him to miss the premiere of “Koch,” a documentary biographical film that opens on Friday in theaters nationwide. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg praised Mr. Koch as “an irrepressible icon, our most charismatic cheerleader and champion,” calling him “a great mayor, a great man, and a great friend.” Mr. Koch’s 12-year mayoralty encompassed the fiscal austerity of the late 1970s and the racial conflicts and municipal corruption scandals of the 1980s, an era of almost continuous discord that found Mr. Koch at the vortex of a maelstrom day after day. But out among the people or facing a news media circus in the Blue Room at City Hall, he was a feisty, slippery egoist who could not be pinned down by questioners and who could outtalk anybody in the authentic voice of New York: as opinionated as a Flatbush cabby, as loud as the scrums on 42nd Street, as pugnacious as a West Side reform Democrat mother. “I’m the sort of person who will never get ulcers,” the mayor — eyebrows devilishly up, grinning wickedly at his own wit — enlightened the reporters at his $475 rent-controlled apartment in Greenwich Village on Inauguration Day in 1978. “Why? Because I say exactly what I think. I’m the sort of person who might give other people ulcers.” His political odyssey took him from independent-minded liberal to pragmatic conservative, from street-corner hustings with a little band of reform Democrats in Greenwich Village to the pinnacle of power as New York City’s 105th mayor from Jan. 1, 1978, to Dec. 31, 1989. Along the way, he ousted the Tammany boss Carmine G. De Sapio and served two years as a councilman and nine more in Congress representing, with distinction, the East Side of Manhattan. With his trademark — “How’m I doin?” — Mr. Koch stood at subway entrances on countless mornings wringing the hands and votes of constituents, who elected him 21 times in 26 years, with only three defeats: a forgettable 1962 State Assembly race; a memorable 1982 primary in a race for governor won by Mario M. Cuomo; and a last Koch hurrah, a Democratic primary in 1989 won by David N. Dinkins, who would be his one-term successor...
