Share memories of growing up with the great music of the 50s, 60s and 70s. My background includes radio and television personality as well as V.P. A&R for A&M Records, where I signed Bryan Adams. In 1997, I began Treasure Island Oldies, the Home of Lost Treasures. I play the biggies, but extensively feature hard to find rare oldies. Listen live Sundays 6 to 10 p.m. Pacific and also the show archives at www.TreasureIslandOldies.com
Let the memories flow!
One of Motown`s greatest solo soul singers was Jimmy Ruffin. While he had several hits, one has become an all-time classic. What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted was a huge hit for Jimmy, and was also spectacularly performed by Joan Osborne in the outstanding documentary and performance movie, Standing In The Shadows Of Motown, about the Funk Brothers, the famous Motown studio musicians.
This week the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the winning song from this week's Voice Your Choice, What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted by Jimmy Ruffin. It's our Song of the Week.
