On the 4th of February, 2008 I had the opportunity to sponsor . . .
Holy ground: The studio decorated with Buddy vinyl, before the transmission started.
. . . "AN ADDITIONAL BUDDY HOLLY HOUR with Hans"
after the regular show.
DJ Tobias Berndt and Bettie Boop.
Keeping the memory alive.
Greetings to you, my buddy Hans,
We are all travelers in this world for a brief moment in time we travel together between the past and future eternities. While we are together we should take each opportunity to bring joy and happiness to others.
It has been fifty one years since my writing and recording OH BOY. A few months after my recording of that song it was recorded by BUDDY HOLLY as lead vocalist for THE CRICKETS.
As we remember the anniversary of the day when Buddy passed from this world, we remember the music he left behind because he gave each song a certain style and mistique.
I am grateful each passing day to the fans who have refused to let this music fade away.
My buddy Hans and his huge website is responsible for bringing the music to an even higher level.
From the bottom of my heart ...
