Events of 1959 – November 29 – First Grammy Telecast

Something a little different today.  I thought it would be interesting to give some historical context to my vintage tweed Fender Champ by highlighting significant events from 1959.  I love this kind of stuff, I hope you like it too!

The first Grammy Award telecast took place on the night of November 29, 1959.  My Fender Champ was a cool 8 months old.  Who won Best Artist in 1959?  Bobby Darin.  Record of the Year?  Mack the Knife.  I think the clip below is from the Ed Sullivan Show.  Get ready to snap you fingers.
