This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
April 4th, 2010 to April 10th, 2010

I'd like to wish everyone Happy Easter, Happy Passover or just Happy Spring. What a fun time we had on the show again this week. And boy, was the Chat Room ever hopping with activity. It was very nice to welcome a first time visitor to the web site and show, Andrew in New York State. And thanks to Guylaine in Quebec City for inviting him. You too are most welcome to drop by for a visit during the live show Sunday nights. Click Chat on the Menu for the easy to follow instructions. I can promise you a very warm welcome from the regular Nuts in the Hut, many of whom have been long time listeners and friends for years now. And we would love to welcome you.

Be sure to listen next week for our Annual One Hit Wonders Special. Every song will be a bona fide hit by the artists or group; however, they never appeared on the charts again. This has been a very popular special throughout the years and I am excited to bring it to you again for 2010. I am sure you'll be surprised when you hear some of the songs and will say to yourself, "I can't believe they could have such a huge hit with this song yet never have another one". And if there is a One Hit Wonder you'd like to hear, Call or Click: 206-203-4678 is the number for the b or click the Requests button on any page of the website. I always enjoy hearing from you.

We are getting closer to the switch over from our old provider to a new one and during the transition, there may be a few days when you may experience difficulties with sending email to me. If any email comes back to you, please be patient and re-send it in a day or two. Please know that if I do not answer you right away, I am definitely NOT ignoring you. We will have everything back to normal and functioning in short order and thanks in advance for you patience.

To get you in the mood for next week's One Hit Wonders Special, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a great one hit wonder classic by Ashton Gardner And Dyke with Resurrection Shuffle. Enjoy!
Voice Your Choice spotlights Floyd Cramer, a fantastic piano player, recording artist and session musician with two of his great big hits: San Antonio Rose and On The Rebound. 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. The winning song will be played in the third hour of next week's show.
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 for you on the show.
