This Saturday night as it`s actually Feb 3rd, on Geoff Barker`s UK BBC
Radio rock n roll show, he`s got a 2-hour Buddy, Ritchie & The Bopper
special lined up.
The first hour will be all sorts of cover versions of their songs and
tribute songs to them.
The second hour is a specially produced one-hour documentary:-
`The Music Didn`t Die...The Winter Dance Party 1959`
Telling the story of the final fateful tour, with all sorts of rare
tracks, tour-promo`s newscasts and contributions from Buddy`s
friends, family and musicians;
Including:- J.I., Sonny, Tommy Allsup, Carl Bunch, Waylon ,
Dion, Bobby Vee, Bill Griggs and never-before- heard audio from Buddy`s late mum, Mrs
Ella Holley, who finally settles the debate about.. "Buddy`s last
phone call".

Much of the interview clips are out-takes and extended pieces left
over from the BBC Radio 2 documentary Geoff made last September which
Steve Harley presented.
This time Geoff does the job himself.
One not to be missed...if only to hear Frankie Sardo`s `Fake Out`!!!

Listening details:-
`The Saturday Night Rock n Roll Party` 18.05 - 20.00 (UK time)
The BBC West & South West Network, on the following BBC local
