    1926: Happy Birthday to the man who contributed more to the founding of rock ‘n’ roll than perhaps any other artist: Chuck Berry would have been 92 today. Make sure and tell Tchaikovsky the news.

     

     

     

     

     

This Day in Rock History - Sept. 16th

1964: No longer confined to one-off appearances on shows like Ed Sullivan, rock & roll finally gets a prime-time TV series of its own when Shindig! debuts on ABC-TV.

The first telecast, created and hosted by L.A. deejay Jimmy O’Neill, features performances by Sam Cooke, the Everly Brothers, the Righteous Brothers, and their “house singer,” a kid named Bobby Sherman.

Unknown to us at the time, but Glen Campbell & Leon Russell performed as members of the house band, Darlene Love provided backing vocals and an occasional solo and a young Terri Garr was one of the original Shindig Dancers (although her young age meant she only appeared in a few of the shows - having to spend time in school, rather than the studio).
