This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

Week of July 4th, 2010 to July 10th, 2010

Four hours of flag waving. That's what it's kind of like every year on our Annual Music of Canada Special. I sure appreciated receiving your requests and comments. I received a great note from Maureen in Berkeley, California who said in part, "to listen to this great Canadian music while having our dinner was and is very enjoyable.--  So much great music from Canada...". Thanks very much, Maureen. And I'd love to hear from you with your comments. Send your email to

I'm pleased to announce yet another radio station has joined the Treasure Island Oldies Broadcast Partners Network. A big welcome goes out to The X: Real Rock Variety in Champagne, Illinois. We'll be on the air on The X every Friday from 9 pm to 1 am and I look forward to hearing from the station's listeners.

The network, insinc, had a technical issue last week which resulted in one of their major key servers going down which affected Treasure Island Oldies 24/7 Continuous Feed plus a host of other streams. Fortunately all is back up and running once again. My thanks to listener Harvey Goldberg in Montreal, Quebec for being the first to let me know about the problem last week.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Bobbi Gutman in Richmond, British Columbia. It was fun to play our official birthday song for her. Bobbi and her husband, Aron, are great friends of mine and our Webmaster, Eddy Fisher. If you have a birthday coming up soon, let me know. Send the details to and I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

In keeping with our Annual Music of Canada Special this week on the show, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a fantastic song by Skylark in a rare live performance of the classic hit song Wildflower. Enjoy!

Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is turning 70 this week; hard to believe isn't it?! To celebrate his birthday, we're spotlighting Ringo on Voice Your Choice this week with two of his big solo hits: It Don't Come Easy and Photograph, both Top Five and both Gold Records. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Attention Alumni of Petaluma High School Class of 1974. The 36 Year Reunion of this Petaluma, California high school is taking place the weekend of August 20th. For information contact Diane at If your alma mater is planning a Reunion, be sure to let me know and I'll pass the information on to you on the show and on the website too. Send the details to
