This accession consists of audiovisual materials created during the production of the radio program, "Guitar: Electrified, Amplified, and Deified." This program celebrates electric guitar players who changed the course of popular music. This 2-hour program features Joe Louis Walker, The Ventures, Junior Brown, Jim Hall, and Les Paul. The radio program was created in conjunction with the symposium, "Electrified, Amplified, and Deified: The Electric Guitar, Its Makers, and Its Players," held November 9-16, 1996, and the exhibition, "From Frying Pan to Flying V: The Rise of the Electric Guitar." The symposium was organized by the Lemelson Center, the National Museum of American History, and the Smithsonian Associates. Also included in this accession is a 53-minute television program, "The Electric Guitar: Its Players and Its Makers," which was produced by the sponsors of the symposium and distributed in 1997 by Fairfax County Public Schools on its television network. The exhibition was organized by the Lemelson Center. Materials include session tapes, original masters, 2" masters, interviews, narration, and some video footage. A folder in Box 2 includes track sheets, scripts, a brochure, and related information.
