That Jon Chattman

Sleigh Bells with A-Sides Founder Jon Chattman

From Alf to Paul Newman, Jon Chattman has interviewed some of the most respected personalities in the business. For over 15 years, he has written on all walks of pop culture specializing in film, television and music, and has previously worked as a managing newspaper editor and a local beat reporter.

For over six years, Chattman has owned
and operated thecheappop.com, a pop culture humor site that
specializes in down-to-earth celebrity interviews and music and entertainment reviews. He is the founder of A-Sides Music, an online music interview series that features established and rising musicians performing and chatting in a low-key setting. He recently launched “A-Sides Live!” a series of music and comedy events in and around Westchester County.

A published author, Chattman has three books set for release in 2012. “I Love the Red Sox/I Hate the Yankees,” which is about exactly what you’d think it’s about, was published by Triumph Books in March. In November, his poignant humor book on 50 wrestling greats who died too young and gimmicks that came and went – “A Battle Royal in the Sky” – will be released by Pitch Publishing. In December, his autobiography with Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka will be released by Triumph Books. In 2013, his follow-up to “I Love the Red Sox…” will be released by Triumph entitled “How the Red Sox Explain New England.”

Those books are follow-ups to 2009’s “Sweet ‘Stache,” a humor book on notable celebrity mustaches, and 2006’s “Rock On!,” a collection of rock concert memories. His writing has also appeared in The New York Post, Wizard, Ultimate Marvel Magazine, and TV Guide to name a few. He contributes regularly
to The Danbury News Times, Spinner.com, and other outlets as well.

Chattman was selected as one of the “Rising Stars – Westchester’s Forty Under Forty” by The Business Council of Westchester.

    Hi, Jon. I am a senior magazine journalist student at Syracuse University, and I’m writing an article on the revival of the mustache for a campus publication. Do you have any availability before Wednesday, Oct. 16 to discuss your book, Sweet ‘Stache? Would love to ask you some questions about your take on the mustache’s cultural renaissance.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
