The GRAMMYS® sprouted from the Hollywood Walk of Fame: music executives wanted to create an award similar to the Oscars and the Emmys. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences was born…they thought about calling their award “Eddie,” to honor the inventor of the phonograph, Thomas Edison. They finally settled on “GRAMMY®” using the name of the invention, the gramophone, first given in 1958.

We’ll hear from a five time GRAMMY® award winner, conductor Giancarlo Guerrero on today’s What’s New.
