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.
In addition, the Grooveyard Top 10 will feature the hits of January 27, 1962 and we’ll play your favorites during the Grooveyard Party hour.
Voting ends Saturday at 10 PM in our 2018 Love Song Survey. There’s two different polls, one for love songs of the 1950s, and one for love songs from 1960-1963. You can pick 10 songs on each survey and write in other songs if your choice isn’t listed. Details are available here.
