Crosscurrents 8:00-10:00AM Wednesday October 12th

This morning on Crosscurrents we listened back to a lot of great brassy- funky- rockin' tunes from the sixties and seventies. We listened to a string of songs made famous by Buddy Holly, performed by him and others, and American Pie, written and performed by Don McLean inspired by the death of Buddy Holly. One lucky listener also won a pair of free tickets to this Sunday's performance of Te Vaca for knowing that Don McLean wrote American Pie! Isn't public radio fantastic?
