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!
It's amazing just how quickly four hours
can go by; and that was the case again this week. The time just seemed to zip by
and before you knew it, it was the last hour of the show. No wonder there's the
expression 'time flies'. It sure does on the Island.
And the Chat Room is a major contributor to the time passing quickly, with all
the regulars and visitors and enjoying each other's company and the
conversations. You should come by for a visit yourself. Click Chat on any page
of the website and use the easy to follow instructions. We look forward to
welcoming you as one of the Nuts in the Huts during the next Live show.
I also really enjoy hearing from you with
your requests and stories as to why a particular song means a lot to you. Call
or Click. The Listener Line at 206-339-0709 is available to you 24/7 to call and
record your message. You can also click the Requests button on any page of the
website. I'll do my best to play your song, but please just remember that it
had to have charted on the Hot 100 between 1955 and 1979.
Once again this week I was pleased to play
on the show a brand new song by one of the heritage artists of our time. Elton John has a brand new album released this week, The Diving Board. It's "back to basics" with
regard to the arrangement style. If you're a fan, I know you enjoyed the first
single, Home Again.
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.
The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing
Buffalo Springfield and their signature hit For What It's Worth. It's our Song
Of The Week. Enjoy!
