61 Around the Sun

And so starts another month in the year 2011.

Happy March. It’s the beginning of winter’s end, (YAY!) windy days and making lots of Irish soda bread. 😀
The beginning of this month also signifies the beginning of the Fender Telecaster’s 61st year. Yesterday NPR did a segment on the history of the iconic guitar and I thought, for those of you that missed the date on the calendar, this is a fun, laid back way to kick off another 31 days. Link to NPR’s stream is below and I’ve found a few solid videos of featuring the guitar for your leisurely listening.

“NPR: The Telecaster: Still Wailin’ at 60.”

Happy birthday to the Telecaster! Enjoy!
