Oh, no.

It is a known date from a copy of the program, not to mention being cited in biographer Guralnick's work.

It has also been a part of this wonderful forum, thanks to someone who cares about the music -->

Nope! Those didn't come on the market until about 1950!

The only practical way then was to make an acetate at a radio station or recording studio.


While it is true that reel-to-reel tape recorders did not achieve general acceptance (largely thanks to Bing Crosby) until the 1950s, by the mid 1940s the wire recorder was already very popular and remained so for the next ten years or so. Furthermore, many record players for home use could also cut records: I used one at school in the early 1960s, but the technology had been around for a long time already.

Yes -- and there are apparently 5 or 6 more.

How weird would it be if you were one of the people who saw this show? It would haunt you forever.

Buddy Holly wasn't just good, he was GREAT. And very ambitious.

Only 22, he would have done so much. It's such a heartbreaker.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
