This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of August 23rd, 2015

August 23rd, 2015 to August 29th 2015
The four hours of this week's show just flew by; in fact, I had to double check the clock as we were approaching the 4th hour. I was pleased to play a couple of leftover requests from last week's Planes, Trains & Automobiles Special. I ran out of time and had to hold them over to this week's show. Glad you enjoyed hearing Down By The Station by the Four Preps as well as Magic Bus by The Who. If there's a song you'd like to hear, please let me know and I'll do my best to play it for you. A few weeks ago, Jeff who is from Idaho, was visiting in the chat room and he mentioned a song that he had not heard since it was a hit in 1964. The song was Jump Back by Rufus Thomas. Unfortunately I didn't have it in the studio at the time, so I finally got to play it for Jeff on this week's show. If I could have seen his face, there would have been a huge grin on it. He was so happy to hear it again after so many years. It was my pleasure, Jeff.
