Hello.... I googled Ralph Hassman and your site came up. I played with him in high school in the Oakland Youth Symphony. We were good buds, but lost touch after high school. He was the MOST outrageous guy I ever knew....Geez we used to laugh! Sorry to see the RIP attached to his name on your site. Please email with info on Ralph. I'm Chico, still play music semi-pro (bluegrass to reggae) and elementary music here in town. Loved the pics of your band JET. Recognized Ralph right away. What did he play in your band...? He was the sweetest oboe player I ever knew back in the day. Thanks....Kim Gimbal Chico, Ca.
