    Description

    Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and Big Bopper Dead In Crash Poster (WEBR, 1959). February 3, 1959 -- the "Day the Music Died" -- was marked by this somber, hastily prepared poster, alerting Rock and Roll fans to tune in to radio station WEBR (in Buffalo, New York) for details. It's interesting to note that Richie Valens was listed over Buddy Holly, probably due to the fact that his hit songs, "Donna" and "La Bamba", were still charting at the time. This poster, done in black, green, and red sign paint on heavy cardboard, measures approximately 28" x 36", and is in VG condition.
