“The Day The Music Died”
It was 48 years ago this week that we lost Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and JP “The Big Bopper” Richardson in a tragic plane crash near Clear Lake, IA. This date would become a defining day in music history. It was the first great tragedy of Rock n’ Roll and it certainly wouldn’t be the last.
Friday, Feb 2nd, Matt The Cat will dedicate the show to these three great performers with plenty of music, soundbites and stories as we celebrate their fantastic careers.
Saturday, Feb 3rd, The 50s on 5 will feature special segments every hour honoring Buddy, Ritchie and JP. So tune in all day on The Day The Music Died to the 50s on 5.
