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!
Ricky Nelson got his start first on his parents' TV show, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. What a way to launch a career! Ricky became hugely popular and ended up with a long and successful recording career.
This week the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a great clip by Ricky Nelson, Hello Mary Lou. It's our Song of the Week.
