Sertified Sound

Tee Pee Records


 It's the Buddy Holly song on a subsidiary of Target Records. Produced by Alan Posniak, formerly with the Phaetons and Golden Catalinas, and the driving force behind Target and Tee Pee records.

Alan Posnak was the second youngest of eight children, Mr. Posniak, or "Butch" as his family called him, fell in love with rock music as he was growing up in Appleton. After high school, he sang in a band called the Golden Catalinas, whose members dressed in gold costumes and dyed their hair gold as they toured throughout the Midwest.

Mr. Posniak had a recording studio in Appleton where he helped Wisconsin bands such as Soup and Love Society get signed to major record labels.

He died in 2000 at age 58 after many years of illnesses, starting with a brain tumor in 1972.
