This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
September 19th, 2010 to September 26th, 2010

While this is the last official weekend of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it sure has lost the feel of the hot sunny days with warm temperatures. The days are becoming shorter with earlier sunsets; days and nights are cool and the leaves are starting to fall. And on Treasure Island Oldies, we are getting ready for a fantastic fall season with more specials coming your way. Our Canadian Thanksgiving Special will happen on Sunday, October 10th, followed by our 14th Annual Halloween Spooktacular, live on Halloween Sunday, October 31st. I am pleased to also present the Music By Numbers Special; that show on Sunday, November 14th, will feature songs with numbers in the song title. Here's where you come in. You listen to every song played on the show and keep a running total of the value of all songs you heard. (For example, Twenty-Five Miles by Edwin Starr plus Sixteen Candles by The Crests, and add A Hundred Pounds Of Clay by Gene McDaniels and they all add up to 141.) You add up all the amounts of the song titles then email your answer to In case of multiple correct answers, a random draw will be made from all correct answers received and one listener will be awarded a prize. This is going to be a very fun special, one you don't want to miss. We'll close off 2010 with our 14th Annual Christmas Special, my absolute favourite show of the entire year, will be on Sunday, December 19th. Here's to a great fall for all!

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.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a fantastic song by The Casinos, featuring the great lead vocals of Gene Hughes. Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye is our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice is featuring Fabian with two of his late '50s hit songs: Tiger and Hound Dog Man. Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
