This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of March 10th, 2013

March 10th, 2013 to march 16th, 2013

What a week it has been; five fallen stars: Claude King, Kenny Ball, Stompin' Tom Connors, Jewel Akens and Alvin Lee from Ten Years After. It was my pleasure to pay tribute to them all on this week's show. Be sure to check out the Playlist to find out where in the show their songs got played and you can hear them on the show Archive.

Next week on the show it's our Annual One Hit Wonders Special. You'll hear all kinds of hit records but what they all have in common is the fact they appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 charts one time and one time only. I know you'll enjoy this special. Then in two weeks, March 24th, Tom Locke, the creator of our long standing weekly feature, Moment In Time, will join me in the studio for a one hour mini special. We'll play Tribute Records To The Artists And Music Of The '50s And '60s. This will be an interesting hour with Tom! You won't want to miss it.

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.

This week the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is paying tribute to one of the five artists who died this past week. In a live performance clip from the TV show Shindig, it's Jewel Akens with The Birds And The Bees. It's our Song Of The Week. R.I.P. Jewel Akens

The spotlight on Voice Your Choice turns to Motown Records for the solo part of the outstanding career of Diana Ross. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Remember Me or Last Time I Saw Him. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

You now have a choice of either YouTube or Podcast to check out the Rock And Roll News for the week of March 10th:

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1962

Hope you have a great week. See you on the Island next week.

Bye for now.
