My eldest brother , a teddy boy in the late '50s used to play his treasured Buddy Holly LP morning , noon and night, that's when he wasn't cleaning his brothel creepers or touching up is 'DA'. My first musical memory is of the brill Charles Holley singing Peggy Sue, Everyday, Rave on and the rest. I still love his music and never fail to bemoan his passing at the very tender age of 22.
My first musical memory from television was Perry Como performing Catch A Falling Star on a tv programme from the US in about 1959 ish. He was singing the song from what looked like a plush tv studio on the 20th floor of a New York appartment complete with the NY nightlights thrown in for extra effect. Strangeley enough I can't ever recall hearing this song since that day !
