This week on Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
August 24th to August 30th 2008

It was so good to be back in the studio for another live show. Despite I only took last week off, it sure seemed like a long time away. As usual, the Chat Room was really busy and buzzing with lots of great conversations and sharing some wonderful musical memories.

On a very sad note, I would like to extend my personal condolences to my friend Matt Meaney from Langley, British Columbia, whose father passed away in California. Matt, all your friends in the Chat Room send their thoughts your way and we all look forward to seeing you and MrsMatt again when you are able.

Next week on the show it's our annual Labour Day Weekend Back To School (and Work) Special. Plus we've got another special all lined up for you, this time it's on Sunday, September 14th with an Encore Presentation of our annual Name Game Special.

Over at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog, our Song of the Week is Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes by Edison Lighthouse, featuring Tony Burrows on lead vocals. This is a performance from England's Top Of The Pops TV show. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights Sir Paul McCartney with two great solo era songs for your votes: Listen To What The Man Said and Let 'Em In. Cast your votes by clicking the Voice Your Choice button on any page of the website and making your selection. We'll play the winning song in Hour 3 of next week's show.

I've listened to the Archive show and it's cool to hear it via the phone.

Ian Chapman sure surprised me with Connie Francis on this week's feature. Be sure to listen once again next week for another great story and song on Ian Chapman's Girl Groups ONLY on Treasure Island Oldies.
