This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

September 5th, 2010 to September 11th, 2010

Our Webmaster, Eddy Fisher, has had successful knee replacement surgery and is now back home. He asked me to pass on his sincere thanks for the kind words of encouragement from listeners and friends via email, e-cards, and good wishes from the folks in the Chat Room, the Nuts in the Hut. I would ask both the listeners and our Broadcast Partners Network affiliate stations to be patient for the next week or so, as Eddy begins the recovery process. It may take some extra time to have the website updated for the Archives and for the private pages for our affiliate stations. As I said last week, thanks for your patience as our patent recovers.

Thanks also to the many listeners who commented during the week about how much they enjoyed listening to the special feature on the show last week with Tom Locke, recognizing 10 years of the Moment In Time. Long time listener in Cincinnati, Dave Polley, commented on "how great it was to hear the Sorrells Pickard jingles again. They were so well done that I remember walking around the office humming them instead of some of the songs." Thanks, Dave. I will keep you and all the listeners informed of any news I receive regarding the reintroduction of Sorrells Pickard Gourmet Peanut Butter.

What a fun time we had this week on the show with our Annual End of Summer Back To School Labour Day Weekend Special. It was good to hear songs that reflected summer, work and school. I appreciated receiving your requests and phone calls too. And as always, anytime you'd like to make a comment, just send an email to For any requests, just click the Requests button on any page of the website or call the 24/7 Listener Line at 206-203-4678. I'd love to hear from you.
