When I was working the desk in a library in another state I both loved and hated certain times that elicited an increased amount of the calls we frustrated librarians called pursuit of trivia. Many of the calls came from Grammy Awards Night parties (or even Super Bowl parties). Tonight if you’re watching the Grammys (like I am) I’ll bet you’re wondering about past winners.
The Grammy site has a nifty search utility where you can search for all the past winners. It’s at:
For instance, if you want to know all the Grammys that Whitney Houston won, just type her name into the name search box. Or you can bring up a list of all the awards given in a particular year, all the way back to 1958 when the best individual jazz performance was Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Duke Ellington Song Book.
So, if you’re just burning with curiosity about all the best winners of best polka album, just select the category “Polka” from the Genre drop-down list.
