This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

January 9th, 2011 to January 15th, 2011

It was so good to see so many friends in the Chat Room during this week's live show. It is quite amazing to have a group of people from all parts of Canada and the United States, who for the most part have never met in person. Despite that fact, it is a great group of friends who enjoy each other's company week after week and share in the great music and memories. And what a friendly bunch they are too; most welcoming to first time visitors who are made to feel right at home right from the start. If you have an opportunity, enhance your experience of Treasure Island Oldies by stopping by the Chat Room for a visit. Click Chat on the Menu and follow the instructions. You'll soon be among the regulars whom I warmly refer to as the Nuts in the Hut. Hope to see you next Sunday night between 6 to 10 p.m. Pacific time.

My condolences go out to long time listener Chris Witmer in West Liberty, Iowa on the sad loss of his father last week. Chris, our thoughts are with you. We wish you all the best; and the energy and courage to get through this very difficult time.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Judy Covington in Canton, Ohio. I also enjoyed playing one of her favourite instrumental hits, Soul Coaxing (Ame Caline) by Raymond Lefevre, as this week's Instrumental Gem of the Week. Say, 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.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing You're Gonna Lose That Girl by The Beatles, from their second movie Help! It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!
