This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

January 23rd, 2011 to January 29th, 2011

My apologies to you if you were unable to get to the website this past Sunday, January 23rd. The company that is the host of our website had maintenance issues and, as a result, many of their clients' websites were not available. That meant people could not come to the site for the live stream links, chat room, or to have their say on Voice Your Choice. Fortunately, it was all working again by the third hour of the show. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it was completely out of my hands and there was nothing I could do to fix it at the time.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to long time listener and Chat Room regular Fred Waterer in Ste. Catharines, Ontario, as well as to my sister Louise Godin in Gatineau, Quebec, and to my good friend Hanny van Engelen in Maple Ridge, British Columbia. Her son, Alexander, lives in Montreal attending University and listens to the show every Sunday night. It was great to see Hanny and Alexander at her birthday party I attended before heading off to the studio for this week's show. 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 group that started off this week's show. The Spencer Davis Group featured a young teenager on lead vocals and keyboards by the name of Steve Winwood. Check out this live TV concert performance of Gimme Some Lovin', our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights Johnny Rivers whose career got kick-stared with a collection of songs recorded live at the Whiskey A Go Go on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. We've got two of his many hits for your votes: Under Your Spell Again, a Top 5 country hit in 1959 for Buck Owens, and Secret Agent Man, the theme song from TV series Secret Agent starring Patrick McGoohan. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Our next special will be our Valentine's Day Special on Sunday, February 13th. Remember to get in your requests and dedications for your Valentine. Click the Requests button on any page of the website or call the Listener Line at our new number 206-339-0709 to record your request and dedication. I'll play your message back along with your request. And for a complete list of the upcoming specials for 2011, go to the Schedules page.
