This Weekend: Buddy, Ritchie and the Bopper


Winter Dance Party Poster

Saturday night at 7 PM on “The Grooveyard”, we’ll look back at the artists who died in the plane crash in Clear Lake, Iowa on February 3, 1959, frequently called “The Day the Music Died”.  Alan Seltzer will feature the music of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.  Buddy’s music will also be featured in our “Under the Covers” segment along with some unusual versions of his songs, and other music related to the event.
