In AMEHOF’s effort to document the history of Arizona music and entertainment, we offer our first online exhibit: “The Joel Samuel Productions Collection.” During the 1980s and early 1990s, local television did little to cover Arizona music and entertainment. That’s why Joel Samuel Productions’ work is of some importance in documenting that period. Joel Samuel’s TV show “Backstage Pass” did feature performers that have been inducted into the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame. These photos come mostly from live events surrounding the TV show, such as the Arizona Entertainment Awards ceremonies. Joel also was associated with the Soundboard music newspaper, so his ties to Arizona music and entertainment are solid. Joel donated this collection of photos to AMEHOF and you’ll see many people associated with AMEHOF in them, including Hans Olson, inductee Lalo Guerrero, Alice Tatum and pending inductee Bruce Connole, among many others. Enjoy.
