Subject: Buddy Holly tribute on "Woodsongs" (it was just wrong)

Did anyone else see this program last Friday (09/15/17) on the RFD-TV network?

I didn't think it was all that great, and it was chock full of mistakes... Things that come to mind were when the host performed "It Doesn't Matter Anymore", he said it was the last song Buddy recorded... He also said that Buddy and the guys lost their lives on a February afternoon, and he said that when Waylon didn't go on the plane, Buddy told him something like "Have fun on the bus" to which Waylon supposedly said to him "I hope your plane lands safely" and that that was supposedly what haunted Waylon the rest of his life, which we all know is not what Waylon said to him...

Also, when the host and one of the other performers (David Frizzell) were talking, the host said that the record company cared so little for Buddy Holly that when his LP was released, they spelled his name wrong on the album jacket and didn't bother to correct it, so Buddy just adopted that spelling as his professional name, which is another big time mistake, since his name was misspelled on a contract so he adopted the spelling after that.

I might have missed other mistakes, because I kind of skimmed thru the program, skipping most of the songs... If anyone else watched it, did you catch any other mistakes said about Buddy?
