This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
May 2nd, 2010 to May 8th, 2010

Wasn't that a party! Our 13th Anniversary Special was a resounding success by all counts. So many of you called in with your anniversary wishes while other listeners emailed their greetings. It was a pleasure to hear from Sunny in Berkeley, Illinois, Paul in Ellicott City, Maryland, Judy from Canton, Ohio, Rick and Connie in Madison, Wisconsin (who are celebrating their 24th Wedding Anniversary this week - All the best to you both). I also heard from Roy in Campbell River, British Columbia, Rich in Hillside, Illinois, Shirley in Cincinnati, Ohio, Mike and Maureen in Berkley, California, Vance in Everett, Washington, plus California Barb with two great requests. JJ in Pickering, Ontario also called in and he too had a great Beach Boys request. It was wonderful to receive an email from Linda in La Habra, California who sent a beautifully written note to me. Joe in Missouri got in touch for the very first time to send along his anniversary greetings and comments on the show. It was so good to hear from all of you. Thank you very much. You made this not just another special, but a very special occasion for me.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to our very own Webmaster, Eddy Fisher, who celebrates his birthday this week. And on the same day Marc Baillergeon, a long time listener in Edmonton, Alberta, is also celebrating his birthday. It was great to play our official birthday song, Birthday by The Beatles for Eddy and Marc. If you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know and I'll with you Happy Birthday on the show and play our official birthday song for you. Send the details to

Be sure to listen to the show next week for our Annual Mother's Day Special. Every song will have something to do with the Mother's Day theme.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is continuing the celebration of our 13th Anniversary by playing Celebrate by Three Dog Night in a great live performance. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!
