This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

May 22nd, 2011 to May 28th, 2011

No matter where you live in the world or what your weather is, it's always hot and cool on the Island! Yep, we've got hot hits and cool Lost Treasures for you every week. And many thanks to the new listeners who have gotten in touch with me to say hi. Interestingly, the common thread among their comments is how much they are enjoying the show. Hearing such a great variety of oldies and some songs they hadn't heard in so many years, is just great. A Treasure Island Oldies Blog reader left an anonymous comments regarding the post last week about the passing of Bob Flanagan of the Four Freshmen: "Truly one of the most unique sounds these men produced. I loved every sound they put out. Flanagan gave the Freshman it's great style and sound." Thanks, and I look forward to your comments on any topic relating to the show and the music.

While there are no listener birthdays taking place this week that I know of, I invite you to let me and all the listeners around the world know about your birthday. Send the details to I'll play our official birthday theme: Birthday by The Beatles.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Los Bravos with their debut smash hit, Black Is Black. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents Neil Sedaka with two of his thirty charted hits: Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen and Breaking Up Is Hard to Do. Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice Your Choice page. The winning song will be played in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Don't forget to check out the show, Live and Archive on your Smartphone. If you need an app, may I suggest They have a version for all types of smartphones, including Android and iPhone. It's fun to be able to listen on the go. Here's the link for the live stream: And this is the link for the 24/7 Stream:

Great News for Macintosh OS X Users, we recently have added a Macintosh to our production computers and we have been testing our site and sounds on Macintosh. Since there isn't a Windows Media Player for the Macintosh, our listeners have been limited to only being able to listen to the live show in Real or archives using Real when they are using OS X. We have tested VLC Media Player and it plays back either the Live feed of Windows Media or the 24/7 Windows Media feed (it also plays Real Media files). We encourage you to support such excellent open source programs. Visit the VLC Project and download your copy of their Media Payer for Windows, Linux, Mac and Unix.

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.
