February 10th, 2013 to February 16th, 2013
Love is definitely in the air this week on TreasureIsland Oldies. No it's not something in the water - it's something in the music. Of course, I'm talking about our Annual Valentine's Day Special. Many thanks for your Requests and Dedications; they sure added to the show again this week. If you missed the Live show, be sure to Listen to the Archive, especially on Valentine's Day itself. You'll hear some wonderful Lost Treasure love songs including Love Eyes by Nancy Sinatra, two versions of the great Everlasting Love, first by Robert Knight, then later in the show by Carl Carlton. And it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without hearing from two key members of the Rat Pack, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra with That's Amore and My Funny Valentine. It was also really good to hear some Troggs songs sprinkled throughout the show in tribute to Reg Presley, the lead singer of the group who passed away last week.
Our next scheduled special will be March 17th for the Annual One Hit Wonders Special. You won't want to miss this special. It's quite interesting just how many big hits were recorded by artists who never hit the charts again.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Guylaine Coté in Quebec City, Quebec. If you have a birthday coming up, send the details of your name, city and birthday date to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll help you celebrate by wishing you Happy Birthday on the show and I'll also play Birthday for you by The Beatles.
The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is doing double duty this week in tribute to Reg Presley, lead singer of The Troggs who passed away last week, and also for Valentine's Day. Here are The Troggs in an original promo video clip with Love Is All Around. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!
Next week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show with two of their biggest hits. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Sylvia's Mother or The Cover Of Rolling Stone. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
Here's the Rock & Roll News for the week of February 10th:
And here's the Top 5 Countdown from this week in 1959:
Have a great week and Happy Valentine's Day.
Bye for now.
