Share memories of growing up with the great music of the 50s, 60s and 70s. My background includes radio and television personality as well as V.P. A&R for A&M Records, where I signed Bryan Adams. In 1997, I began Treasure Island Oldies, the Home of Lost Treasures. I play the biggies, but extensively feature hard to find rare oldies. Listen live Sundays 6 to 10 p.m. Pacific and also the show archives at www.TreasureIslandOldies.com
Let the memories flow!
Be sure to join us this and every Sunday for another live edition of Treasure Island Oldies. Remember, you can also listen to the archived shows or our Continuous 24/7 Feed at any time.

Rock & Roll Reunion - We return to our roots: the 1950s for a Rock & Roll Sock Hop and dance away to the great '50s tunes
Spot Dance - At the end of the Rock & Roll Reunion, we roll up the carpet, turn the lights down low, get the mirror ball spinning slowly, grab our dance partner and dance away to two dreamy slow numbers.
Of course, throughout the show you will hear lots of Lost Treasures, either rarely heard or hard to find hits.
I would like to thank you for the great fun and for sharing our music memories once again this week. It was great having Fred Hume in the studio as a guest on our R&B/Soul Music special. Thank you for the feedback from the chat room, email and my blog. Your comments make all this worthwhile.
Speaking of the chat room, congratulations to Jill and Tim, celebrating their first anniversary of meeting each other in the Treasure Island Oldies Chat Room. They just returned from a wonderful tropical holiday in the Caribbean to celebrate their happiness. Welcome home; it was great chatting with you this evening. Tim said "Thank you Michael for having this website, this internet radio show and this chat room. Without it, Jill and I may never have met each other.
Love you all, Tim and Jill.
Isn't that great?! Stop by the show and discover for yourself what has been happening on the Internet every week since 1997. Michael
For this R&B Soul Music Special, joining me in the studio will be Fred Hume and we will be chatting about and playing 4 hours worth of R&B Soul favourites plus hard to find, rarely heard Lost Treasures.
