Presented by Mike Read

In 1931 in Los Angeles, steel guitarist George Beauchamp teamed up with electrical engineer Adolph Rickenbacker to produce the world's first electric guitar. With its long narrow neck and small, round, banjo-like body, it was christened 'the Frying Pan'. George Harrison ,

Pete Townshend. Roger McGuinn , Tom Petty , Paul Weller and Johnny Marr contribute to this appreciation of one of the sounds that shaped rock and roll. Recorded in glorious Rick-o-sound!
