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!
interesting how fast seven days goes by until we're back together again
enjoying our favourite music here on the "Island". And if you think that seven days go by
quickly, it's uncanny how fast the show's four hours go by so quickly. One
thing for sure, we're never bored at Treasure Island Oldies. And it's always so
cool to play not only your favourites, but also lots of Lost Treasures, songs you haven't heard in years but vividly remember
nonetheless. It was great to start off the show with Shake And Fingerpop by Jr.
Walker & The All Stars. It was also fun to hear Tom Northcott's 1941;
haven't played it on the show since 2007! In case you missed the live show, be
sure to enjoy the Archive at the Listen page. You'll hear a ton of great music.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week
to Cora Quinn in Peoria, Illinois. A
good friend of hers passed on her birthday information, so she had no idea I
was going to celebrate her birthday on the show until she was actually
listening to the live show. Good fun. And if you are about to celebrate your
birthday, be sure to let me know so I can wish you Happy Birthday on the
show and I'll play Birthday by The Beatles for you! Send the
details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
sure to mark your calendar for some upcoming specials: on June 16th it's our Annual
Father's Day Special, our Summer
