Alright, look at it this way, this is the 3rd HOUR, not the 3rd week commemorating Feb 3rd, 1959.
And this episode is about Buddy Holly because Holly was the major loss.
J.P. Richardson, The Big Bopper, undoubtedly would have returned to Radio.
Richie Valens was a wild card- he could have fizzled out or gone on to better things.
But Buddy already had an extensive catalogue of Music that musicians continue to play to this day.
I'll play him too- by Buddy himself and by others, including some contemporary Artists.
