This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
February 14th, 2010 to February 20th, 2010

What a week! The 2010 Olympic Winter Games are underway in Vancouver, and the city is abuzz. I have never seen this kind of energy here in Vancouver, and I was here during Expo '86. Even non-sports fans are caught up in the Olympic spirit and excitement. And the city literally erupted in joy when the first Gold medal on Canadian soil was won by Alexandre Bilodeau in the Freestyle Skiing - Men's Moguls. What a thrill for Alex, his family, and all of Canada.

I truly hope you have an opportunity to watch some of the coverage, wherever you live. You'll get a taste of Vancouver, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And as people began their love affair with Vancouver and Whistler, we celebrated Valentine's Day on the show. Thank you very much for your phone calls, email requests and dedications. It was great to play all your requests.

I'm pleased to let you know that you can now hear the Top 5 Countdown at any time. Click Listen on the Menu and scroll down the page. There will be a new Top 5 Countdown available every week. A big thanks to our Webmaster, Eddy Fisher, for this great new addition to Treasure Island Oldies.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Craig Smith of Keswick, Ontario, who celebrated his birthday with his friends in the Chat Room and all the Nuts in the Hut wished him well. If you have a birthday coming up, let me know by sending your name, city and birthday date to We'll play Birthday by The Beatles, our official birthday song.

Lots of new friends connected these past few days on Facebook including my sister Louise Godin in Gatineau, Quebec, Charlene Smith-Gize, my nephew Tony's wife in Airdrie, Alberta, as well as James W. Foster, Michael Easton, Trevor Andres, Colin MacDonald, Robert Bartosh, Mark Fromson, George Robertson, Eric Alper, Marjorie Corbo, and singer Ron Dante, who sang Tracy by The Cuff Links and Sugar Sugar by The Archies. What a week! Follow me on Facebook, click the logo on any page of the website and get connected.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog has Three Dog Night in the spotlight. They were the Oldies Artist of the Week on the show and I thought it would be great to have them sing Celebrate, a great song at any time, but perfect for the Olympic celebration in Vancouver. Enjoy Three Dog Night live on TV from 1975 with our Song of the Week.

Del Shannon is the featured artist on Voice Your Choice with two of his rarely heard hit songs for your votes: Stranger In Town and Two Kinds Of Teardrops. Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear. Click the Voice Your Choice Button on any page of the website and make your selection. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Remember to send in your photo for the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Gallery. Many folks have, and there's still room for yours. Send your picture, name and city to I look forward to receiving  it from you.

Is your high school, college or university Alma Mater planning a Reunion? Let me know and I'll be pleased to let the listeners know about it. Today with people scattered all around the globe, it is sometimes difficult to reach them. I'll do my best to help publicize and promote your Reunion. Send the details to

Have a good week.

Bye for now.
