"The Guitar Contest of the Century" was a August 19, 1971 contest between Bill Little and Ted Carroll to determine who was the better guitar player. Hugh Darnell, Ted's "manager" is on the left. Ted Carroll is in the center wearing a hat. Just to his left is Bob Gregg, Bill Little's "manager". You might wonder "Where is Bill?". The newspaperphoto caption says Bill phoned in to say he had an appointment in Nashville. Ted was declared the winner.
The young ladies on the right were part of Ted's cheering section. They are (l-r) Anne (Colvin) Jones (partially hidden behind Ted), Lynn (Jones) Rogers, and Marion Gardner.
This photo was taken in Studio A which served as a production studio, news room and record library at the time.
