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!
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.
