The Day The Music Died

Welcome to Radio Rebecca, the grooviest radio station in the English Channel.

Hot on the heels of the 1965 FAB Music Awards, we are pleased to host our famous and exclusive post-awards party, only for the hippest in Swinging London.

The results of the awards have just been announced and there is a shock result with the relatively unknown Lovebirds taking first prize.

To everyone’s surprise, the immensely popular Hornets and teen heart-throb Rick Bragger did not make the final three.
There are musicians, record promoters and members of the press at the party and fortunes can be made and lost. The party will climax with the winning record being broadcast on the John Corr Evening Show.

For now, turn on, tune in, drop out…..

The Day the Music Died is available in pdf format (£10 via Paypal).
