week on Treasure Island Oldies
2014 to October 4th
It was great to spend four hours with
you again this week on the show; and did the four
hours ever fly by quickly! And I’ve already had
emails and comments from listeners about the songs I
played. Some of their favourite songs included the
Montanas and You’ve Got To Be Loved;
as well as Ring Dang Doo, a rarely heard hit
for Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs. I also got
response to the Made In Canada song by
Jackson Hawke, Set Me Free, their debut
single. Tim Ryan of the group had such a
great voice. And I was also pleased to get great
feedback on the new song by Bryan Adams. As
many of you know, I signed Bryan to a record
contract when I was the head of the A&R Department
for A&M Records. His new album is being
released this week and it titled Tracks Of My
Years; it’s full of covers of songs he grew up
listening to as a kid and early teenager before he
started on his own musical career. He sure did a
great job on The Beatles’ Any Time
wishes go out to long time listener Ed Sanderson
in Toronto, Ontario. If your birthday is
coming up soon, let me know by sending the details
I’ll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and also
play Birthday by The Beatles for you.
