This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

Week of June 26th, 2011 to July 2nd, 2011

Now that's what I call summer! Our 15th Annual Summer Beach Party was a rousing success and a great way to start the summer season with the greatest summertime music of the '50s, '60s, and '70s. Thanks for your requests; it was great to play them on the show. You can be sure that there will be much more throughout the summer season, in case I was not able to play your favourite on the show this week. There's still plenty more HOT songs coming your way.

Be sure to join us next week for our Annual Made In Canada Special, featuring the songwriters and recording artists who made their mark on the music scene from coast to coast in Canada and around the world. I've been getting your requests, thanks very much.

I just made it back to Vancouver in time to get home, unpack my suitcase, have a bite to eat and head to the studio for our Summer Beach Party. I was away in Palm Springs for a few days of r&r. Many thanks to my good friend Lawrence Little, founder and owner of Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services™ for his gracious hospitality. We've been working together on re-branding his company for the past 2 1/2 years and just completed the roll out the previous week. Here's to the future Lawrence! I'm glad to be part of it all.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Jess Vanditmar, my son David Godin's girlfriend, and to Tony Gize, my nephew in Airdrie, Alberta. And best wishes also to Paul Turner and 247 Music Radio, our Broadcast Partner Station in Singapore, celebrating their 3rd Anniversary on July 4th. Congratulations, Paul! 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 one of the most popular summer songs of all time. Our Song of the Week is Love Letters In The Sand by Pat Boone. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights Lighthouse, the great jazz rock group from Toronto, featuring the late Bob McBride on lead vocals. There are two songs once again this week, but you need to choose only one. Would you like to hear Sunny Days or One Fine Morning? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's Made In Canada Special.

Take Treasure Island Oldies wherever you go this summer. 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.
