Goodtimes_Inhalt_BUDDY_HOLLY.jpgHier ist ein Teil des Inhalts des Musik - Magazins GOODTIMES, das vom deutschen Internetradio RMN Goodtimes herausgegeben wird. Hier etwas aus der neuesten Ausgabe 5 / 2011. Ein Artikel über die Lubbock - Legende BUDDY HOLLY. Herzlichen Dank an Günter für diese interessante Information !





                                                 


Editor note:


During my vacation at the Germany North Sea coast, I saw a boat in Carolinensiel,

a romantic village with 3 harbours in a row alongside the river Harle.

The name of the boat was " GRILLE ".

GRILLE is German and it means "CRICKET".

Have a look !



GRILLE_CRICKET.jpgThe boat "GRILLE" = CRICKET

What about the next one ?  Roger Miller sings "Engine, Engine # 9"

and is accompanied by Jerry Allison on drums in the background.


Wie steht es mit dem nächsten Foto ?  Roger Miller singt "Engine, Engine # 9",

                                         Thanx a lot, Tony !






Probably the most tasteless cover design I've come across.

This is a 2CD set in a book format containing an illustrated 

fictitious comic styled story of the plane crash and a biography

in both  - French and English.

                  Colin Davies is well known for his Buddy Holly Radio Specials


                                  Here'a a mail he sent in not long ago :



Check out my new website www.theprofessorrocks.com  It's been completely re-done, and includes links to lots of previous radio shows (as reqested by lots of you!), and also links to lots of articles and reviews I've written over the past few years. Through it you can also connect to my most recent show (on live365.com) and also hear me live in the studio at Radio Fairfax.  Lots of cool stuff!!
Please check the website, listen to the show, and tell me what you think!
Best wishes,  Colin

    Cafe BUDDY HOLLY in Nijmegen / Netherlands

             The catch was taken in 2006.



    Buddy Holly fan Gerrit from the Netherlands sent me 3 interesting photos.

    He heard about a Cafe BUDDY HOLLY in Nijmegen some years ago and

    he was so interested that he took a photo there. Unfortunately he could

    not get inside, although he waited several hours.


    This cafe still exists, but it has another name now. See the pic below.
