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 played Hey! Little Girl by Del Shannon on this week's Treasure Island Oldies show. And it sounded so good I thought I'd play another song by the late great Del Shannon. This was his first single and as you'll hear in David Letterman's introduction, as the height of Runaway's success, it was selling 80,000 singles a day!
Here is Del Shannon and Runaway. It's our Song of the Week.
