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!
I'm glad to back with you again this week
after a wonderful vacation in Canada's
desert, Osoyoos, British Columbia
in the Okanagan Valley. Osoyoos and the
surrounding area including Oliver are in a micro climate resulting in a true
desert. There's sage brush, a variety of cacti, snakes, etc. Wonderful warm and
sunny. It's the perfect environment for the dozens of wineries in the area, all
growing multi-award winning wines. Rented a 31 foot Class A rv. If you've ever
wondered what it would be like to be in a luxury motorhome, you've gotta try
it. Like a hotel on wheels. I really enjoyed it and will do it again. Thank you
for the very warm welcome back during the live show. And it was great to hang
out in the Chat Room with the Nuts In The Hut once again this week. Looking forward to a
great fall with you and more of our specials. I'm also looking forward to being
part of the lineup of shows when Peachland Community Radio
debuts at the
beginning of October. We'll be live on the station every Sunday evening at our
usual time from 6 to 10 pm Pacific.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Scott Harmon in
Phoenix City, Alabama, Sara Koratowski in New
James Gardner in Victoria, BC
and Colin MacDonald in Vancouver, BC. Lots of
birthdays this week; and 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.
This week marks the official return of a
feature that was part of the show at its very beginning in 1997. To highlight
the return of Compare The Hits, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Neil Diamond
with a live performance of Kentucky Woman.
It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!
