Foreword by Beatles producer Sir George Martin. Other testimonials include: Neil Diamond - "What fun ! I dare you to put it down" also John Kay from Steppenwolf, D.A. Sonneborn from the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings , Mary Wilson from the The Supremes and the late Rick James who wrote "I may be the king of funk 'n' roll, but Jay is the king of facts"

From the Inside Flap

Format: Paperback
On This Day In Music History: Over 2,000 Popular Music Facts For Every Day Of The Year by six-time Grammy- winning music publisher and historian Jay Warner offers a chronological wealth of "bite sized" infobits on the men, women, companies, and inventions that compiled and assembled provide an inherently fascinating and wonderfully informative history of music in popular culture. From the installation of the first Jukebox at San Francisco's Royal Hotel in 1899, to the induction of Tina and Ike Turner into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 (with producer Phil Spector accepting the award in their absence), On This Day In Music History makes for informed and informative browsing. Presented in a calendar formate and enhanced with more than 180 black/white images, On This Day In Music History will prove a welcome and popular addition to personal and community library Music History Studies collections.

Purchased this for my nephew for Christmas as a stocking stuffer. It was full of interesting little facts that he wasn't aware of and he told me that he enjoyed reading it and discovering a lot of trivia pertaining to music history.
