Three thoughts. Even as assistant, imagine having one of your first recording projects be The Genius of Ray Charles, one of the greatest jazz/soul/r&b-into-r&r albums of all time. Talk about "Just for a Thrill"!

And speaking of "r's," surely that A&R Studio name also drew on the title for a producer back then, "a&r man" (meaning "artist & repertoire").

And will we be hearing about MM & JFK? Or the odd triple-play urban legend in which recording master Phil Ramone... becomes a Paul McCartney pseudonym... leading to four speed-rockers named "Ramone"... who are eventually trapped in a studio with the other famous producer Phil ("infamous" maybe), Ol' Gun-totin' Spector himself? Somebody must have been Tinkering with Chance.
