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!
Jack Scott was born in Windsor, Ontario and became a very big recording artist but not a big star. He seemed to be the reluctant success story, as he didn't clamor for the spotlight, even though he ended up in the spotlight on many occasions. He appeared on the Hot 100 charts nineteen times. That is a feat for anyone. And this week we spotlight his first hit single.
