This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of February 24th, 2013

February 24th, 2013 to March 3rd, 2013

Thanks for listening to this week's show and our extensive Tribute to the Dave Clark Five and in respect for the passing of Rick Huxley. He was the co-founder of the group and the bass player in the band. If did not get to hear the live you, you're in for a treat when you listen to the Archive. Each hour opens up with a triple play of DC5 hits. There are even some Lost Treasures you'll hear by the group. You know, the Dave Clark 5 appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show more than any other group from the rock and pop era. Quite a feat and quite a legacy of fantastic music from a great band. I know you'll enjoy our tribute, Island style.

The Chat Room was buzzing this week and great to see both new and old faces joining the regular Nuts In The Hut, the name affectionately attributed to the regulars in the Chat Room. A big hello to Linda G in LaHabra, California; it was fun having you come by for a visit. Hi to Tommy in Crossville, Tennessee and Robert in Los Angeles, California and via email hi to Geoff Eden in Welland, Ontario and Joe Morgan from his mobile phone. He's listening to the show on his mobile and said he really enjoys the show and wanted to hear Everybody Knows by the Dave Clark Five. Great to hear from Ineyda Velasquez in Homestead, Florida who asked for a great song, Isn't It A Pity in celebration of George Harrison's birthday this week. Great to hear from you all.

Happy Birthday wishes this week to George Mooth in Edwardsburg, Michigan, and to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame DJ, my friend David Marsden, in Toronto, Ontario. If you have a birthday coming up, send the details of your name, city and birthday date to 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 also paying tribute to Rick Huxley, the bass player and co-founder of the Dave Clark Five. It's Five by the Dave Clark Five, 5 hit video clips, including a nice Tribute to Rick Huxley video to Because. They're our Song(s) Of The Week. R.I. P. Rick Huxley. Thanks for the music!
