This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

January 16th, 2011 to January 22nd, 2011

Every week we have listeners from various parts of the world listening to the show via the Mediaontap Network. This week we had people from across Canada and the United States, as well as Moscow, Russia, Auckland, New Zealand, plus Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, Jundiai in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Anoual in Nador, Morocco, as well as the Czech Republic. Add to that the number of listeners via the Broadcast Partners Network in Singapore, Scotland, Sweden, England, United States and Canada, and you truly have a worldwide show. How fantastic!

My sincere condolences go out to long time listener and friend Tim Sykes in Cambridge, Ontario on the passing of his father. We were sorry to hear the news of your loss Tim. Our thoughts are with you and Jill.

I know that we have some birthdays coming up that I'll tell you about next week on the show as well as here in the Weekly Update. If you have a birthday approaching, please let me know. Send the details to and I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play our official birthday song for you, Birthday, by The Beatles.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the great Dion DiMucci in a clip introduced by Dick Clark. I know you'll like Ruby Baby; it's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights Chris Montez with two of his Adult Contemporary hit songs he recorded under the guidance of Herb Alpert at A&M Records. This week we feature The More I See You and Call Me. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. The winning song will be played in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
