This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

September 12th, 2010 to September 18th, 2010

I am going to begin this week's update by repeating what I wrote about the death of our friend Craig Smith earlier this week: I am very saddened to pass on the news to you that long time listener, friend and Chat Room regular, Craig Smith passed away peacefully at 9:05 pm on Monday, September 6th. He was 54. Craig loved radio and music and was passionate about both. He was the Moderator of, the "Big Yellow Board"  that was all about radio in Southern Ontario and Western New York. Craig had been on the waitlist for a liver transplant; however, his conditioned weakened and he was unable to go through the transplant procedure. Consequently, he was moved to palliative care where his condition worsened. Craig will be missed by the Treasure Island Oldies Chat Room regulars, affectionately referred to me as the Nuts In The Hut. Craig, we will miss your great sense of humour, your love of music and all things radio, and your terrible typing skills. Rest well, my friend.

Our webmaster, Eddy Fisher has asked me to pass on his thanks and appreciation for your kind thoughts he has continued to receive. It is very encouraging during this time of recovery. The "Bionic Man" is enjoying his new knee. LOL

Happy Birthday wishes to long time listener and Chat Room regular, Scott Harman in Phenix City, Alabama. If you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know by sending the details to and I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you as well.
