APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. - Jan. 28, 2021 - PRLog -- Join Daniel the Musicologist this Sunday for Rock and Roll 101, a weekly two-hour music history show, on SKY 7 internet radio. Show time is 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Mountain Standard Time.

This week, it's a two-hour special on what Don McLean called The Day The Music Died -- the aftermath of the plane crash on February 3, 1959, that took the lives of early rock stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson -- also known as The Big Bopper.

They were part of the Winter Dance Tour of the Upper Midwest in the winter of 1958 and 1959 that also included Dion and the Belmonts and a new recording act named Frankie Sardo.

You'll hear hits and rarities from Holly, Valens and the Bopper, along with interviews with Bobby Vee, Bob Becker, and Donna Fox - who had the hit record named after her. Also, tribute songs recorded by Tommy Dee and Mike Berry.

In the second hour, it's a triple play of the Cover of the Week with The McCoys, The Beatles and Jerry Lee Lewis, followed by a segment on the ongoing influence of the three stars who died that Winter night. The tribute concludes with a triple play of The Crickets' appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show from 1957 and 1958.

To listen, log on to and click on the Classic Hits and Awesome Variety channel. Rock and Roll 101 airs every Sunday at 6 p.m. (reboot at 8 p.m.) Mountain Standard Time on SKY 7.
