This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of April 6th, 2014

April 6th, 2014 to April 12th, 2014

This week on Treasure Island Oldies it’s the Annual One Hit Wonders Special featuring songs by artists who made an impact on the charts but one time only. It didn’t matter if they had scored a Number One hit like In The Year 2525 by Zager and Evans or a Top 40 smash like Baby Come Back by The Equals or even A Little Bit Of Soap by The Jarmels, a Top 15 single in 1961. All of these artists appeared on the chart only once, never to have another hit record. Surprising but true. In case you missed the Live show, be sure to listen to the Archive at the Listen page.

The clock is ticking down to the next special, the Treasure Island Oldies 17th Anniversary show, Live Sunday, May 4th  and, as always, on the Archives. I look forward to celebrating another anniversary with you, my friends and listeners all around the world.

If you have a birthday coming up, let me know so that I can wish you all the best on the air and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing one of my all-time favourites, Baby Come Back by The Equals, featuring the great Eddy Grant on lead vocals. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice returns next week with Motown’s Diana Ross & The Supremes. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either No Matter What Sign You Are or The Composer. I’ll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week’s show.

Here is the Rock and Roll News for the week of April 6th.

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1957

Well that’s about it for this week’s update. Take care and have a good week.

Bye for now.
