week on Treasure Island Oldies
March 22nd, 2015 to March 28th
I always enjoy letting you know about
a new album from what I refer to as our “Heritage”
artists, and I am so pleased to let you know that
Ringo Starr will release a brand new album,
Postcards From Paradise, On March 31st.
And I was glad to play the title song on the show.
What’s so cool about this new song from Ringo are
the number of references in the lyrics to songs
written or recorded by The Beatles and Ringo
as a solo artist. I counted 25 tunes mentioned! Very
cool. If you missed hearing the Live show, be sure
to go to the Listen page and click Archives.
You’ll be able to hear Postcards From Paradise
during the 2nd hour of the show. I’m also
going to play it at the Treasure Island Oldies
Blog. Postcards From Paradise is our
Song of the Week. Enjoy!
