Congratulations to The Mamas and the Papas producer and long-time friend Lou Adler, who was honored with a Trustees Award at the 61st annual Grammy Awards last night in Los Angeles, CA.

This Special Merit Award is presented by vote of the Recording Academy's National Trustees to individuals who, during their careers in music, have made significant contributions, other than performance*, to the field of recording. (*Through 1983, recipients included performers.)
