This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

January 2nd, 2011 to January 8th, 2011

Happy New Year! I hope that 2011 will be filled with good health, much happiness and great music and memories for you. It is always a fun way to start off the new year with our Annual New Year Dance Party Special. I wore out four pairs of shoes with all that dancing - gee, that's a pair of shoes per hour! LOL We'll be back to (ab)normal next week with all of our regular features next week.

As I mentioned on the show, we had technical issues with the Listener Line and had to get a NEW Phone Number: 206-339-0709. You can call the Listener Line at any time 24/7 and record your message for the song you'd like to hear. I look forward to hearing from you and playing back your call and song.

Happy Birthday wishes to Shirley Ham in Cincinnati, Ohio and Stirling Faux in New Westminster, British Columbia. If you have a birthday coming up, I'd sure like to help celebrate your special day with you and the Treasure Island Oldies Listeners. Send the info on your upcoming birthday to I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play our official birthday song for you, Birthday, by The Beatles.

Thanks very much for the great feedback at the Blog, via email to me and on Facebook for the Music of Christmas video series we presented. There sure were some classics among the songs played for you. And we start off 2011 with a great dance anthem at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. I'm pleased to play for you Chris Montez in a live performance from the Diamond Awards in Antwerp, Belgium from 1992 with the classic Let's Dance. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice returns on next week's show with The Beach Boys and two of their classic dance hits: Dance Dance Dance and Do you Wanna Dance. Which song would you like to hear? Make your selection at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
