Sonny Curtis with Jo Ann Winchester
(Colours added by my mate Peter F. Dunnet from the UK)
I received a mail from my mate Roddy Jordan from Australia about the photo above:
"This photo was sent to me the other day and it is
obviously Sonny looking very young and dapper.
I emailed Sonny and he told me the following:"
It's really a blast from the past. The girl is Jo Ann Winchester.
She was the Texas FFA (Future Farmers of America) Sweetheart
and I was the Texas FFA entertainer.
(See the original photo on "Bits & Pieces 7")
Buddy, Sonny & Friends
Here are 2 photos with Buddy and Sonny surrounded by friends.
Many thanks to Jochen Rehberg from Portugal !
These 2 photos are of inferior quality because they were photographed from the PC screen,
thus contained wavy lines. Therefore I do not show them in their original size.

Good luck for the new theatre production. There is always the Covid pandemic in the back of your mind,
but hopefully by June things can be better than they were in the winter.

WHAT A REVIEW !
A CD-Sampler Review from 2011
CD: "RAVE ON BUDDY HOLLY"

This review from Germany made me smile,
as it was unusual, funny and true.
I tried my very best to translate it for you.
I'm not perfect at English,
as it is not my native language!
Sicherlich auch ein Spaß für die deutschen Leser, mal auf so eine Kritik zu stoßen!
Vielen Dank an meinen Freund Heinz Griesbach für die letzten 4 Beiträge !
Many thanks to my friend Heinz Griesbach from Germany for the last 4 topics !
When we talk about Sampler CD's, here's another one:
(My own research)
"Rockin' In The Graveyard"
I personally don't find this cover of a sampler CD very tasteful.
Nevertheless, I wanted to show it so that everyone can form their own opinion.
A Quite Unusual Buddy Holly Music Review
Anyone who often visits YouTube will know the
processes exactly, as they recur time and again.
Someone uploads a music track that is accompanied
by a slideshow, a still image or a video.
It is always this "ritual" that is broken here.
This man has uploaded a series of extraordinary
videos on YouTube, where he can be seen in his
living room presenting old vinyl records.
(Uploaded Feb 3, 2021)
I think it's successful because it finally throws the old rites overboard.
This cool guy talks about Buddy and "Rock Around With Ollie Vee", "Midnight Shift" and "Reminiscing".
Well done, keep on the good work !
To be continued soon . . .
