Today is the 54th anniversary of "the day the music died." A plane carrying Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens crashed in Iowa, breaking the hearts of countless teenagers and changing the course of rock & roll history forever.
From the distance created by time, we can discover the heritage of that extraordinary era is more than just the million-sellers everyone remembers. The music – brash and yet innocent in the same breath – was a symbol of a generation waiting to bust loose from their constraints.
Inside you will find a medley; not just any medley but a 34-minute non-stop reminder of what was and a hint of what might have been.

Odds and Ends: FEDERAL RESERVE AUDIT REVEALS CORRUPTION
If This Doesn't Shock You, Nothing Will
It doesn't matter how you feel about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). To some he is nothing more than a steady stream of hot air. To others, he is one of the few politicians in Washington who actually listens to his constituents.
Like him or not, he led the fight to force an audit of the Federal Reserve. The results of that non-partisan audit show a history of secret (and outrageous) loans and more than a few cases of conflicts of interest.
THIS IS IT!The Countdown Is Over
It's Time To Pick The Song of The Decade
Listen To The Medley and Vote!
Over the past ten weeks, we have asked you to consider 400 great songs. You eliminated 390 of them but now we're asking you to make the ultimate choice – and it won't be easy – as you vote for the Best Song of The Seventies.
Odds and Ends: SO YOU THINK YOU'RE HAVING A BAD DAY?
I DARE You To Watch The Whole Thing!
We have all heard cover bands try to get as close to possible to the original version. Some bands do it very well. The band shown above ... not so much.
It is the WORST version of Comfortably Numb you will EVER hear! The vocals are bad enough (and I'm being very generous) but the guitar solo will leave you in stitches. Take a peek inside ... if you dare.
Today is the 52nd anniversary of what has become known as "the day the music died." It was just over five decades ago that the plane carrying Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens crashed in Iowa breaking the hearts of countless teenagers and changing the course of rock & roll history forever.
From the distance created by time, we can discover the heritage of that extraordinary era is more than just the million-sellers everyone remembers. Yet we realize — surely we must — the spirit of the old music, brash and yet innocent in the same breath, was a symbol of an era waiting to bust loose from their constraints.
Inside you will find a medley; not just any medley but a 34-minute non-stop reminder of what was and a hint of what might have been. Listen to it today for just like Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, the medley will be gone tomorrow. That’s the way music is. Our heroes are too soon forgotten as time and our never-ending thirst for more and more leave the footprints left by those who came before us buried in the sand.
*Due to the fact we were offline early Thursday morning, we have decided to leave this article (and the medley inside) available for anyone who might have missed it ... or wants to hear it again.
