This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

This week on Treasure Island Oldies
September 26th, 2010 to October 2, 2010

What another treat it was to spend time with you once again this week on Treasure Island Oldies. As usual, the Chat Room was hopping and the Nuts in the Hut commented many times about particular songs. For example, this week's Memory Test was Noel Harrison and A Young Girl. Matt commented that not only was he the son of actor Rex Harrison, but that the song was written by the world famous French chansonier, Charles Aznavour. Several eyebrows were raised when hearing The Son Of Hickory Holler's Tramp by O.C. Smith; now that's another fine example of a Lost Treasure, a song you remember but one that you have not heard in a long time. That's why I love doing this show every week. It is lots of fun for me to awaken your memories when you hear a particular song. And if you have a particular song you'd like me to play on the show, just let me know. You can click the Requests button on any page of the website or call the Listener Line at any time of day and record your message for the song you'd like to hear. Feel free to share a memory with all the other Islanders. The number to call is 206-203-4678.

I am glad you are having fun with the recent new feature on the show, the Music Link. Listener Parl Carter Jr. in Ellicott City, Maryland, has sent an excellent list of songs that have a link in the song titles. This week is was Surfin' Bird by The Trashmen and Rockin' Robin by Bobby Day, with the Music Link being Bird and Robin. We'll have another Music Link for you next week.

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 the "Wicked" Wilson Pickett in a high energy, soulful, live concert performance of Mustang Sally. There's a complete horn section and the group is as tight as can be. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice is featuring Mr. Five By Five, the legendary Fats Domino with two "blue" tunes for your votes: My Blue Heaven and Blue Monday. Make your selection for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice Your Choice page. The winning song will be played in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
