Jon Michael Show Notes

  

Jon is originally from Los Angeles, Where I met him. Well, Encino to be exact. About 1980

 

He had just recently come off a tour with the New Christy Minstrels which… fuck! I totally forgot to ask him about!

HIS MUSICAL INFLUENCES  are Jim Croce and Harry Chapin. You can clearly hear that in his writing and performing. Both those boys would have been proud to count Jon as a protege.

PERSONAL INSPIRATIONS - His mom; wife, Jeannie; and Daughter, Jennings

“For the longest time, my sole concentration was on my music and to pursue my music career, I thought I had to be single and uncommitted. Today, I’ve discovered I can have both and it’s truly inspiring.”  … And I can tell you, because I’ve known Jon a long time, and as one of his Facebook friends who reads his posts - he dotes on his family- BIGTIME!

 

Christina Pirello, a Philadelphia TV cooking show show hostess heard Jon play his music one night at the Bluebird Café in Nashvilland invited him to perform on “Christina Cooks,” her natural foods cooking program on PBS. The response was so overwhelming that Christina invited Jon to sing on every episode. The show is carried by more than 150 PBS affiliates and has introduced Jon’s music and warm personality to a coast-to-coast audience. Talk about singing for your supper.
