    Buddy Holly 1958 Hit Charts Displays (1958). Two unique displays with fascinating Buddy Holly connections, including artifacts from Holly's own scrapbook. One contains an original "radio survey" of hits for the week ending October 25, 1958, from Lubbock radio station KDUB. Proud of its native son Holly, the local listening audience had made "It's So Easy" (which didn't even chart nationally, but has been covered by many artists since) #12, "Early In the Morning #27, and "Real Wild Child" (by "Ivan" -- the Crickets' Jerry Allison) #28. The other display includes an original record survey from Wayne's Record Rack, dated November 1, 1958, which shows "It's So Easy" as a "Current Best Seller".
    Both charts had been obtained by noted Buddy Holly historian Bill Griggs from the Holley family, the transactions documented in two letters, dated April 25 and July 13, 1998, copies of which are included here. Third party shipping required.
