I remember being in the car, pausing, thinking, then saying to myself. “Who the hell was that?” You see, that was long before I could look anything up in the car, , and I certainly didn’t have the internet at my fingertips, otherwise known as the Pre-...

Rave On Buddy Holly

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#423 in the Series) is Rave On Buddy Holly. Back in the early 90s I worked as a District Manager for a music distributor.  One of our accounts was Wal-Mart.  We would stock them with their music and make sure they were fixture properly etc.  (BTW, back then, they refused to stock AC/DC because their albums had parental warning stickers on them. Now I see there is a new AC/DC release and the ONLY place you can get it is Wal-Mart!) At one point, we were doing some major renovations that had to be done only at night after the stores closed.  I was the head of one of these projects.  I had...
