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.

Let the memories flow!
Labour Day Back To School End Of Summer
Special was a blast. Cramming three themes into one special was both a lot
of fun and a challenge. Once again this week, there were a lot of requests and
boy, were they ever good songs you requested. Thanks very much indeed. It was
also a real treat to play the brand new song by Paul McCartney, called New.
It is classic McCartney with a real vintage Beatles feel. I sure hope it becomes a smash for him; it is a smash
for me at any rate. Being a huge Beatles fan, how could you not like this song!
I played it twice, first time in the 1st hour and again near the end of the 2nd
hour. The full album, produced by four different producers including the son of
Beatles producer George Martin, Giles Martin. The album, appropriately
also called New, will be released October 15 and I will preview it on the show
may have noticed that the dates for this week's update go from September 1st to
September 14th. I will be taking off on vacation for one week. I'll be back

playing one of the greatest summertime songs of the '60s. It's The Shangri-Las, a great Girl Group
with two sets of sisters, and the long Stereo version of their classic hit, Remember (Walking In The Sand). It's our
