Tribute To Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper

In recognition of the anniversary of the plane crash near Clear lake, Iowa on February 3rd, 1959 that took the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, we're paying tribute to them with three clips.

We start with Buddy Holly and the Crickets in a live performance of Peggy Sue December 29, 1957 on the Arthur Murray Dance Party TV show.

Next is Ritchie Valens in a live concert performance of Donna. Please note the clip is audio only.

Last but not least comes the Big Bopper on American Bandstand performing Chantilly Lace. Dick Clark does the introduction.

All three are our Songs of the Week.
