This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

August 22nd, 2010 to August 28th, 2010

What a week it's been on the Island! I am very pleased to welcome two new radio stations to the Treasure Island Oldies Broadcast Partners Network. We are now on HTS - in St. John, New Brunswick, Saturday and Sunday from 8 p.m. to Midnight. We are also now on, Asia's Premiere Music Radio - Singapore, every Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 Noon. I know you join me in welcoming the listeners of both stations. I hope you enjoy your stay on the Island.

It's amazing that the weekly feature Moment In Time has already been airing on the show for ten years. In recognition of this milestone, Tom Locke, the research and writer of the Moment In Time, will join me in the studio throughout the first hour of the show. We'll present the Top Ten Moments In Time, ten great stories behind ten great songs. Be sure to listen next week.

In two week's it our Annual Labour Day Weekend End Of Summer Back To School Special. We'll feature some great work songs, back to school themes, and the last chance to enjoy some great summer songs. Mark your calendar for Sunday, September 5th and join in for this annual special.

If you have a birthday coming up , send the details to me including your name, birthday date, and your city to and I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you as well.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing The Ronettes in a great live performance of Be My Baby. Enjoy!
