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!
The O'Kaysions hailed from Wilson, North Carolina and scored a smash Top 5 hit with Girl Watcher. I wanted to play it for you this week, not only because I featured it on this week's show, but also because I had previously assumed it was an R&B group. Surprisingly, they were not a Black R&B group.
Here are The O'Kaysions with Girl Watcher, Top 5 from 1968. It's our Song of the Week.
