This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

February 5, 2012 to February 11, 2012

I am glad you enjoyed this week's show including our Annual Tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper. If you missed the Live show, be sure to check out the Archive. And don't forget to enter the contest that's part of our Tribute. Up for grabs is a very cool CD, The Buddy Holly Tapes. It's interviews with Buddy Holly from October 23, 1957 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Future Rock and Roll Hall of Fame DJ Red Robinson, who was barely no longer a teenager himself, talks with Buddy backstage at the Show Of Stars concert that also included Paul Anka, The Everly Brothers, Frankie Avalon, Buddy Knox and Fats Domino at the Georgia Auditorium. It's become a rare and historic opportunity to hear a then still-rising star with a strong sense of naiveté. This CD could be yours. All you need to do is send an email to contest@treasureislandoldies and include your name and full mailing address. I will make a random draw from all entries received and announced the winner on next week's show. So you have all week to enter.

Speaking of next week's show, be sure to listen to our Annual Valentine's Day Special. It's be four hours of LOVE! The fun begins Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 6 pm Pacific time. And if you can't make it for the Live show, you can listen to the Archive at any time. I look forward to playing Cupid on next week's show.

If you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know by sending the details of your special day to I'll be pleased to wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles.
