BUDDY_HOLLY_LIVES
     









    A few days ago I received a mail with attachment from my brother in
 
Buddy RODDY JORDAN from Australia. He is known to be the #1 fan and
 
specialist for Buddy Holly & The Crickets and has published several

books about it.


This was his foreword to a list that has been circulating on the net for a
 
short time, but needed some correction :



Some of you may have seen this but to those who haven’t, it is very
 
good.
 I have cleaned up and corrected the Australian Tour section as
once again it was incorrect.
    


                        BUDDY HOLLY & THE CRICKETS



 

September 7, 1936

September 1953

Radio station KDAV in Lubbock begins broadcasting what is considered the first all-country music format in the United States.

February 19, 1954

Holley, Bob Montgomery, and Larry Welborn perform "Flower Of My Heart," a song written by Bob, for a contest at Lubbock High School. The song wins the competition and is chosen as the 1954 Senior Class Song.

 

After Jack Neal marries, Holley teams up with Bob Montgomery to form Buddy and Bob, who advertise themselves as Western and Bop performers. The Buddy and Jack Show is replaced by the Buddy and Bob Show on The Sunday Party.
