The "La Bamba" Coin Toss

Hopefully some of you've had a chance to listen to my interview with Lou Diamond Phillips for the 20th anniversary of "La Bamba." This one was great to do in that I could talk about a movie that I really enjoyed as well as the great music of Ritchie Valens that it turned me on to.

One thing I talked about with Lou is the factual accuracy of the film. While it sounds like there was a great effort to portray events correctly, there are usually at least some minor liberties taken in biographical movies for the sake of telling a good story in a short period of time. That being said, I give you the real story behind one of the most important moments in the film. On the actual 20th anniversary of "La Bamba's" release, I chatted with Grammy Award winning musician Tommy Allsup, who lossed the coin toss to Ritchie Valens for the final seat on the tragic flight. Have a listen...
