Instrumental Gems - Wordless Wonders

This week on Treasure Island Oldies it's the return of the popular annual special: Instrumental Gems - Wordless Wonders. It was very common in the 1950s, '60s and '70s to hear instrumental songs on the radio. Today it is a rare occurrence.

Once a year, Treasure Island Oldies digs into its music vaults and uncovers an entire four hours worth of those great instrumental hits. The beauty of songs like that are you can hum along and never have to worry about remembering the words.

You'll hear artists such as Bert Kaempfert, Hugh Masakela, Cliff Nobles And Company, Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass, Floyd Cramer, Bill Doggett, B. Bumble And The Stingers, The Bar-Kays, and so many more, including The Beatles!

Join me this week on Treasure Island Oldies for this fun four hour special: Instrumental Gems - Wordless Wonders.

See you for the live show Sunday, August 6 from 6 to 10 p.m. Pacific. And if you can't make the live show, the be sure to listen to the archive, all available at Treasure Island Oldies. Posted by Picasa
