Today, september 7th, would be Charles Hardin Holley’s 74th birthday. Charles who?
He is better known as…….Buddy Holly.

In 1978 a movie “The Buddy Holly story” had been released.
You’ll see Buddy Holly as an early teenager in Lubbock, Texas and how he rolls into the world of rock and roll with his good friends and bandmates, drummer Jesse Charles (Don Stroud) and bass player Ray Bob Simmons (Charles Martin Smith), soon to be known as The Crickets. They start to record in Nashville, Tennessee, but Buddy walks out when his musical ideas clash with the producer’s.

Eventually, he finds a more flexible producer, Ross Turner (Conrad Janis), who, after listening to their audition, allows Buddy and the Crickets to make music the way he wants.
While there, he meets Turner’s secretary, Maria Elena Santiago (Maria Richwine). His budding romance with her nearly ends before it can begin, when her aunt initially refuses to let her date him, but Buddy persuades her to change her mind. On their very first date, Maria accepts his marriage proposal and they are soon wed.
