We look back 60 years ago to that plane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper on February 3rd, 1959.  We'll spin tunes from each of those along with Dion and Waylon Jennings.  Dion also shares memories of Buddy, Sonny Curtis sings of the real Buddy story and we also hear a track from a recent release of Buddy Holly and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.  Rave on!!!
