I remember Del-Fi and Ritchie very well. From my Jr. High School in Canoga Park I saw the midair airplane collision that rained down debris on Pacoima Jr High. Ritchie was a San Fernando Valley singing hero long before he became a national star. It was all because of Del-Fi. RIP Bob, thanks for bring great music to the forefront.
