                        It'll Soon Be Upon Us: February 3rd

The 56th anniversary of the untimely deaths of Charles Hardin Holley, Richard Valenzuela, and Jiles Perry Richardson---who were suddenly instantaneously rendered deceased when their chartered small plane crashed and burned in an Iowa cornfield while on an ill-fated mid-winter cross-country tour.

Some of you may or may not be familiar with an instrumental Ritchie Valens recorded titled FAST FREIGHT under the pseudonym of "Arvee Allens".
"Why did he record under that name?" you ask.
Why not?  It's also his namesake as well, just in the phonetical:
Ritchie Valens: R.V. Allens.
