This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
November 15th, 2009 to November 21st, 2009

Thank you for the feedback on The Long Ones Special. I'm glad you enjoyed hearing these longer than the typical 2 1/2 minute songs. There were only a handful of long records in the 50s and early 60s (Ray Charles' What'd I Say, for example), with most 4 minutes and longer songs happening in the late 60s and into the 70s. Thanks for your requests too. I love getting your input and requests. And anytime you'd like to hear a song on the show, just let me know. Either email your requests by clicking the Requests button on any page of the website or give me a call. The Treasure Island Oldies Listener Request Line is available to you 24 hours a day at 206-203-4678. Leave your voicemail message and I'll play it back on the show along with your request. It's your move.

Our next special will be our 13th Annual Christmas Special, live Sunday, December 20th. For your convenience, our webmaster Eddy Fisher has installed a Countdown To Christmas Clock on the main page of the website. I hope you find it a handy tool to refer to when needed.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Connie Canode in Madison, Wisconsin and Chris Witmer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It was my pleasure to play Birthday by The Beatles. If you or someone special to you is having a birthday, let me know. Send the details to It'll be my pleasure to wish you Happy Birthday and play Birthday by The Beatles.

I also wanted to say a quick thank you for your comments on the Remembrance Day/Memorial Day videos I posted to the Blog on November 11th. I appreciated hearing from you with your views.
