I had a great time playing the music for you once again this week on Treasure Island Oldies. I was also pleased to pay tribute to Canada's Pat Hervey who passed away July 31st. It was great to hear Mr. Heartache, and Tears Of Misery, along with a couple of lesser known songs by her, Walkin' In Bonnie's Footsteps and Heaven For A While, both of which were Top 20 hits in Canada. I think it is so important to recognize our recording artists and their contribution to music history. I try to keep their music alive on the show, and I feel it is important to pay tribute to them when they pass. Their legacy is the great music they recorded for us, the fans.
We're just a few weeks away from the next special. On Sunday, September 4th it's the Labour Day Back To School Special. You'll hear songs like Chain Gang, Let's Work Together, New Girl In School, Be True To Your School, as a few examples. As as we are approaching the end of summer, I'll also play some last of the summer songs for this year.
