February 3rd, 2013 to February 9th, 2013

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, it's our Annual Tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. If you missed the Live show, be sure to catch the Archive. Sprinkled throughout the first three hours, you'll hear some recordings by artists that covered songs by Buddy Holly. A few examples include, The Beatles with Words, The Rolling Stones' version of Not Fade Away, Love's Made A Fool Of You by The Bobby Fuller Four, and many others. Then in the 4th hour it's our annual one hour Tribute to The Day The Music Died. Go to the Listen page and click Archivesto hear the entire show. And you can also see all of the songs played on the show this week by having a look at the Playlist,also located on the Listen page. I know you'll enjoy this week's show and thanks for your requests, which I included.

Next week it our Annual Valentine's Day Special. It'll be a four hour Love Fest, with your requests and dedications included. However, in order to include them, I must hear from you.

If you have a birthday coming up, send the details of your name, city and birthday date I'll help you celebrate by wishing you Happy Birthday on the show and I'll also play Birthday for you  by The Beatles.
