“Peggy Sue,” Buddy Holly

Did you know RDF saved the world from the Nazis? Its true.

RDF – better known now as RADAR – was the British acronym for “radio direction finder” and it was essentially the sole reason the Brits were able to repel the larger and more advanced Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain. Using RDF, the Brits were able to “see” the Nazis coming and efficiently deploy scarce assets to their best effect.

FUCK yeah! Technology.

Oddly, Buddy Holly’s dope scattershot guitar solo in “Peggy Sue” reminds me of this ever’ dang time I hear it.

Not a song to which you can goosestep.

Let freedom ring.
