We took a mini-vacation over the weekend, and visited Mason City and Clear Lake, Iowa. We'd heard about the Surf Ballroom (http://www.surfballroom.com/) and decided to visit, and we're glad we did. Talk about a step back in time!
"The day the music died" according to Don McLean's song "American Pie". Looks like a very fun place to visit, especially for us old rock n' rollers (ok... I was only a year old when the plane crashed... but love that music)
Wow that is neat. Reminds me of our Riverside Ballroom here in Green Bay, Wis. There is a monument to Buddy and the others who died. I believe that Buddy had just gotten done preforming at Riverside and had taken off for his next performance when the above plan crash took place.
