This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

April 3rd, 2011 to April 9th, 2011

It was good to be back home in Vancouver and in time for this week's show. Many thanks for your email requests once again this week. When you are requesting a song, please remember this show plays the hits from the '50s to the '70s. And all the hits that appeared on the Top 100 charts. I don't play non-hit album cuts on the show. It's been that way since we started back in 1997.

We continue to be experiencing technical difficulties with our live Real Media stream. Until it is resolved, the LIVE Real MediaStream will NOT be available. However, the Archive Real Media will continue to be available the day after the live show. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Wow new Facebook friends continue every week, with recent new friends Bobby Rydell, Lynne Erin Flanery, Dale F. Abbott, Christine Vitale, Dennis M. Nardone, Gary Sabourin. George J Ward, Albert Miller, and so many more. Follow me on Facebook. Click the Facebook logo and link on any page of the website.

There have been some interesting comments posted recently at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. Regarding the post about the death of the lead singer of the Hues Corporation, Bernard St. Claire Lee, John Cook wrote: "Sorry to hear of the passing of Bernard St. Clair Lee I worked with his father Otis Henderson in the earlier 1970s when the Hues Corporation recorded "Rock The Boat I remember how proud his father was of him R.I.P" And further to the post about Dorothy Jones of The Cookies: "Just thought you might like to know, Margaret Ross sings with Barbara Harris as one of "The Toys". Barbara has also put together The Cookies" featuring Margaret's Ross. They can be reached through Barbara's website".
I invite you to leave a comment on any posting at the Blog.

Next week on the show it's our Annual One Hit Wonders Special. Boy, will you ever be surprised by some of the songs you'll hear. Many artists were never able to repeat the success they had with their first hit record. Oh sure, they more than likely released more 45s, but they were never able to achieve another hit. And we'll spotlight those artists throughout the show next week.

The following week on the live show on April 17, Tom Locke, the creator and writer of our weekly feature, Moment In Time, will join me in the studio as we feature have a mini-special, Great Lyrics - Title Not Included. These will be hit records that did not include the song title in the lyrics. This will be fun!

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the late great Gene Pitney with Town Without Pity. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice features two songs by The Beatles from possibly my favourite Beatles album, Beatles 65 (Beatles For Sale in the UK). I hope there is a tie, cause it would be hard for me to choose between No Reply and I'll Be Back. However, you have to vote, not me. LOL Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice Your Choice page. The wining song will get played in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

It brings me back to the transistor radio era all over again! I'm having a blast showing friends and colleagues how cool it is to be able to listen to the show via a smartphone, and in my case my iPhone. If you own a smartphone, this is for you. You  can now listen to the live show Sunday nights as well as the Treasure Island Oldies 24/7 Stream on your smartphone (Android,  iPhone or  Windows). WunderRadio is the app you need to buy; and reasonably priced at only $6.99. You can get the app at Here's the link for the live stream: And this is the link for the 24/7 Stream:

Let the world know you're a proud listener of Treasure Island Oldies. Send in your name, photo, city and province or state for the Listener Gallery to and our Webmaster, Eddy Fisher, will post it on the Listener Gallery page along with the many already received.

You can also let all your friends know you enjoy the show with your personal Treasure Island Oldies Email Signature. A selection of complimentary signatures to be placed at the end of your outgoing emails is available for download. Click Goodies on the upper menu on any page on the website. Thanks to the many folks that have downloaded their own copy of the Email Signature. That's great!

I hope you have a great week and see you next Sunday for the live show.

Bye for now.
