  • History Quiz for over 60 group

    Where were you and what were you doing 49 years ago today (Feb 3, 1959)? Of course you do know what tragic event occurred on this date?? Clue: It had nothing to do with the new Lark! Matthew, you will get a pass on this one.

    in a snow storm, at Clear Lake IA, also on board and lost were
    JP "Big Bopper" Richardson and Ritchie Valens......some say

            On my return to school after lunch (grade 8) Margo (I forget her last name) informed me that Buddy Holly had died. I could not believe her. While others had Elvis as their favorite. mine was always Buddy Holly. I knew the words to 50 of his songs and could sing along with him until my voice broke.

            I think I'll put on my latest CD which happens to be a compilation of most of his songs,

            My favorites: Well All Right; Rave-On; Love's Made A Fool of You; You're So Square; . . . almost all of them

            Yes, lots of talent from Lubbock, Texas.

                Oh, Yeah.

                I had graduated from high school in January 1957, and gone to work for Potomac Electric Power Co. (PEPCO) in the audit dept.

                Fifties Rock and Roll was "my" music. The Everly Brothers and Elvis Presley were my favorites, but Buddy Holley and Richie Valens were way up there too.

                Sad Day.

                    I bought a record called "Three Stars", that was about them being killed.

                        Yes truly a sad day in the world of music! Don Mclean
                        did it right, with his single "American Pie" (1972)....
                        Something did change, after that day.
