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!
As part of the tribute to the late Wayne Carson and Buddy Buie, two very successful songwriters who passed away, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing The Letter, originally a smash hit for the Box Tops, and later so well done by Joe Cocker as part of the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour and live album.
In another live concert performance, here is the late great Joe Cocker with The Letter. It's our Song of the Week.
