The Beatles are in this Episode, and don't forget, The Beatles took their name for its similarity to Buddy Holly & The CRICKETS- Beatles...Crickets, get it?
The the Part One of this show turned out pretty well too, if you are interested.
Moving on with the second half of a show done 50 Years To The Day after that Infamous Plane Crash on Feb. 3rd 1959, this Chapter is all Buddy Holly.
To me, Buddy ranks closely up there with the Beatles, and there is a real connection between them.
The Beatles chose their name because they wanted something similar to The Crickets- something that was clever and had two meanings.
I'll have Music from both.
But the most remarkable thing in here, and you may never have heard it, is an interview Alan Freed did with Buddy Holly just a few months before the Crash.
There are the two them laughing and joking about all the dangerous Plane Rides they had taken on tour together the year before!
It's very eerie...almost surreal!
Give a listen, it's a nice collection of Rock & Roll and not all 50's Oldies!
Continued next week.
Here are the links to choose from, and Buddy is a Personal Favorite of Mine, at Mike Pell Rockollections:
