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!
Be sure to join me for our multi-themed
special, the Annual Labour Day Back To School End Of
Summer Special, Live, September 1, 2013,
and then on the Archives at the Listen page. It's my way to help you make the transition
from summer to fall, with great songs to fit the themes. And a reminder that
the following week, September 8th, I will be taking a week's vacation so there
will be an Encore Presentation of a show from
February 2008 with special guest in the
studio, Chad Allen, the original lead singer of
The Guess Who. Chad joins me during the first hour
of the show and shares lots of great early Guess Who days memories, along with
lots of their early recordings. I know you'll enjoy this encore presentation.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to my good friend Fay
Greenwood in Langley, British
Columbia. You will recall Fay hosted the
very enjoyable feature on the show, Hits From Across The Pond.
Happy Birthday also to Jerry Gaule from AM 1700 Classic Car Gold,
in Albany, Oregon, a Broadcast Partners Network station. If you have a birthday
coming up, I invite you to let me know so that I can wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
