week on Treasure Island Oldies
2014 to November 22nd
Wow was that ever fun to play
all those great all-time classic country tunes on
the Pop Goes The Country Special this week on
Treasure Island Oldies. It didn’t matter if it was
the ‘50s, ‘60s’ or the ‘70s, when a country record
became huge it often “crossed over” from the country
charts to the Pop charts, and at times to other
charts as well, such as the rhythm and blues and
adult contemporary charts. Now THAT is the power of
great music! And I very much appreciate that you too
love great music and country music as well. I’m so
pleased with the response I have already received
from this week’s show. Several listeners indicated
they thought it was actually one of the best
specials ever on the show. Thank you very much! And
there will be more specials too. Our last special
show will be this year’s Annual Christmas Special.
The show will be Live Sunday, December 21st
and on the Archive throughout the rest of the
Christmas Holiday Season.
And get ready for 2015 when we will celebrate the
18th Anniversary of Treasure Island
Oldies. More details soon…
Best wishes and
Happy Birthday to long time listener of the show
and good friend of mine and the folks in the Chat
Room, Connie Canode, in Madison,
Wisconsin. In addition, I’d like to say Happy
Birthday to my nephew Andrew Gize in
Gatineau, Quebec, and to J.P. Guilbert,
in St. Maarten in the Caribbean. I had
the great pleasure to work with J.P. during my
almost 11 years with A&M Records. If your birthday
is coming up soon, please be sure to let me know. It
would be my pleasure to wish you all the best on the
show and also play Birthday by The Beatles
for you. Send the details to
