This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of June 26th, 2016

June 26th to July 2nd, 2016

What a fun Summer Beach Party we had this week. Considering it was the 19th year for this annual special, everyone is still looking pretty good! LOL So many of our music memories have a tendency to have formed during our summers listening to the radio on a hot sunny day. And I was able to play lots of your great summer memories for you this week. Thanks for your requests; they always add to the show. Please be sure to join me next week for the Music of Canada Special. I'll play songs by Canadian songwriters, singers and groups that made an impression regionally, nationally and internationally. Having signed Canadian artists to A&M Records when I ran the A&R department from 1975 to 1986, Canadian music always holds a very special place in my heart. And I look forward to sharing some of that joy with you next week on the show.

Send the details to I’ll wish you Happy Birthday during the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the Number One song on this week's Top 5 Countdown from 1964. It's a live performance of A World Without Love, written by Paul McCartney and a smash hit for Peter and Gordon. It's our Number One Song of the Week. Enjoy!
