June 19th, 2011 to June 25th, 2011

As a Dad myself, I always really enjoy our Annual Father's Day Special, and this year was no exception. Isn't is interesting just how many songs have been recorded over the years that are either about Dad or have a reference to Dad, Father, Papa, etc.? It's great to be able to fill an entire show with Father's Day songs. And there are two more specials coming up for you. Next week join us for the 15th Annual Summer Beach Party with the sun, the surf, the sand, and great summertime music. It's a great party we have on the Island every year. In two weeks it's our Annual Music Of Canada Special, lots of great music from Canadian songwriters, singers and groups who have made their mark from coast to cast and around the world.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Linda Guy in La Habra, California and Burt Thombs in Smithville, Ontario. If you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know. Send the details to I'll be pleased to announce your birthday on the show and play our official birthday theme song by The Beatles, Birthday.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the quintessential Father's Day song, in keeping with this week's show special, but with a twist. The Song of the Week is My Dad by Paul Peterson. But the clip we're playing at on the Blog is a video tribute to Chuck Connors who starred in the TV western The Rifleman with Johnny Crawford. Happy Father's Day. Enjoy!

As next week is our 15th Annual Summer Beach Party here on the Island, Voice Your Choice has a couple of great summer hits for your votes. The Beach Boys, the perfect summer music group, are in the spotlight with Catch A Wave and Surfin' USA. Which song would you like to hear while on the beach during our Summer Beach party? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

You can listen to both the Live show as well as the 24/7 Stream on your smartphone. You'll need an app for listening. 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.
