This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of September 28th, 2014

September 28th, 2014 to October 4th, 2014

It was great to spend four hours with you again this week on the show; and did the four hours ever fly by quickly! And I’ve already had emails and comments from listeners about the songs I played. Some of their favourite songs included the Montanas and You’ve Got To Be Loved; as well as Ring Dang Doo, a rarely heard hit for Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs. I also got response to the Made In Canada song by Jackson Hawke, Set Me Free, their debut single. Tim Ryan of the group had such a great voice. And I was also pleased to get great feedback on the new song by Bryan Adams. As many of you know, I signed Bryan to a record contract when I was the head of the A&R Department for A&M Records. His new album is being released this week and it titled Tracks Of My Years; it’s full of covers of songs he grew up listening to as a kid and early teenager before he started on his own musical career. He sure did a great job on The BeatlesAny Time At All.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to long time listener Ed Sanderson in Toronto, Ontario. If your birthday is coming up soon, let me know by sending the details to I’ll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a rarely seen clip of The Rose Garden and Next Plane To London. It’s our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!
