Posted: Friday, February 08, 2013 by Travis Cody in

We bee-bopped this week as we paid tribute to "The Day the Music Died", 3 February 1959, when a small charter plane crashed shortly after take off from an airfield near Mason City, Iowa.  Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and JP "Big Bopper" Richardson were all killed.

Enjoy Set 160 from the 1950s.

    Thanks for the tunes. Wish I would have had them for the snow shoveling we did all weekend, but there was no time on Friday. Makes for a good Monday, though! GGG
