After the inspiration for the song "Peggy Sue" and an author of a new book about the tragedy appeared on his show last THURSDAY (3/17), TALK RADIO NETWORK-FM/DIAL GLOBAL host ERICH "MANCOW" MULLER is now on board with the movement to reopen the investigation into the plane crash that killed BUDDY HOLLY, J.P. "THE BIG BOPPER" RICHARDSON, and RITCHIE VALENS on FEBRUARY 3rd, 1959 in IOWA.
MANCOW hosted PEGGY SUE GERRON and "HEY BUDDY" author GARY W. MOORE for a discussion of suspicious circumstances involving the flight. GERRON said that the charter plane owner referred to the pilot, ROGER PETERSON, who also died in the crash, as "incapacitated," while MOORE called for an inspection of the remaining wreckage and has established a petition asking for investigations into the crash. MANCOW said that he is "calling for the re-opening of the investigation into this crash."
