Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.

On Feb. 3, 1959, the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper were cut short when their plane crashed into a frozen field in Minnesota. This week, we'll mark the 54th anniversary of these musical legends' passing with a handful of their songs. Today, we honor Ritchie Valens.
