This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of February 5th 2017

Week of February 5th, 2017 to February 11th, 2017

Three young rock and rollers lost their lives in a plane crash this week in 1959. And in  the 4th hour of this week's show it was our tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper with the Annual Tribute: The Day The Music Died. It is always so fascinating to hear a young Buddy Holly being interviewed and jarring to hear the news bulletins announcing the plane crash to listeners. Overall however, it is always great to hear their music and the musical tributes that were generated by their passing. Thanks for listening to this week's show and the special again this year.

Attention all lovers! Our next special is coming up next week with the Annual Valentine's Day Special. The entire four hours will be filled with some of the greatest love songs of all time. You won't want to miss it when we get underway at 6 pm Pacific.

Is your birthday coming up soon? If so, please let me know the date so that I can help you celebrate your special day on the air. Send the details to and I'll wish you Happy Birthday and play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

The Top Five Countdown this week is from 1959 and the Number One song is Stagger Lee by "Mr. Personality", Lloyd Price. It's playing at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. Enjoy!

Next week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents the soulful duo Peaches and Herb. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Close Your Eyes or For Your Love. I'll play the winner on next week's show.

Here's this week's Rock and Roll News Podcast.

Have a great week and see you next Sunday for the next Live show and our annual Valentine's Day Special.

Take good care and all the best.

Bye for now.
