Buddy Holly recorded most of his hit songs at the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, and Blitz will talk about the Fireballs, a band from Raton that recorded the country's No. 1 hit, "Sugar Shack," in Clovis in 1963.
Blitz, a native of Philadelphia, also will talk about his book, which focuses on the original "Bandstand" show that aired before Dick Clark became the host.
