The Buckinghams and Freddy Cannon--Memories of Minnesota, 1986

Minnesota is a favorite state for Buckinghams' concerts, and a particularly great concert was the Faribault County Fair, held July 26, 1986. Featuring The Buckinghams and Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon, the concert was considered 'retro' as "Back to the 50s and 60s". Today 'retro' is 'classic'. Sponsored by radio station KBEW-AM, whatever the event was part of the festival/fair heydey of the mid-80s. No matter how high the hair piled atop their heads, Carl, Nick, Bob, Bruce, and Tom, are ever much the same today as back in 1986.
