This week on Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
September 7th to September 20th 2008

The Chat Room was packed once again this week, and it was really good to welcome back Sunny in Berkeley, Illinois. She'd been having major computer problems and was unable to join in the regular fun for several weeks. We also wished a big Happy Birthday to Scott Harmon from Phenix City, Alabama. And of course, we played Birthday by The Beatles, the official birthday song of the Island. If you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know and I will wish you all the best and play Birthday for you too. Send your email note to

On a program note, next week I will be away on vacation and there will be no new live show. However, we are pleased to present an Encore Presentation of our annual Name Game Special. Every song will have someone's name in the song title. It'll be fun and I hope you enjoy this show, originally aired last September 16, 2007. Our next live show will be Sunday, September 21st.

At the Treasure Island Oldies Blog, our Song of the Week is by Bobby Rydell with a pretty rare video clip of him performing Sway. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice will return with our next live show, Sunday, September 21st.

Great to hear from George in Athens, Greece, who listens to the show via our Broadcast Partner Station, Cruisin' Oldies Radio. Thanks for the nice note, George, and a big thanks to Joey at COR for sending the note to me.
