This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

July 10th, 2011 to July 16th, 2011

And the hits just keep on coming! And boy did they ever, again this week on the show. It's always such a treat to play some songs that by today's standard would be considered Lost Treasures. I know you enjoyed hearing Down The Aisle of Love by the Quin Tones, Mark Lindsay's Silver Bird, Foot Stomping Pt. 1 by The Flares, Angela Jones by Johnny Ferguson, Under The Moon Of Love by Curtis Lee, and so many more. For the complete playlist for this week's show, click Listen on the Menu at Treasure Island Oldies and the scroll down to the Playlist.

And thanks once again for the wonderful comments and feedback on last week's Made In Canada Special. I very much appreciate it. We've got a couple more specials coming your way. On July 24th it will be our Technicolour Special. Every song played will have a colour in the song title. I've done this theme once or twice before over the past fourteen years the show has been on the air, and it's a lot of fun. Then on August 7th, it's one of the most popular specials of the entire year: the Instrumental Gems - Wordless Wonders Special. Remember the days when there were so many instrumental hit songs on the radio? Not any more; but you can relive those days and wonderful memories with the entire show filled with great instrumental hits from the '50s, '60s and '70s. You don't want to miss this one!

The activity on my Facebook page continues on a regular basis. Recent new friends include Stephen Young in Vancouver, British Columbia, broadcast legends J. Robert Wood, former Program Director for powerhouse 1050 CHUM in Toronto, "The Live" Earl Jive, in Beverly Hills, California, long time listener Claes Ehrenhorn in Gothenberg, Sweden, Mary Anne Lisney in Tucson, Arizona, and another broadcaster, Ross Winters who is returning to Vancouver, British Columbia. Keith Sharp, who published the music magazine Music Express in the late '70s, has also become a friend. You can too. Just click the Facebook logo on any page of the website.

In tribute to Rob Grill, the lead singer of The Grass Roots who died this week, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the biggest hit of their great career: Midnight Confessions. It's our Song of the Week.

Voice Your Choice presents Nilsson with two wonderful hits of his for your votes this week: Everybody's Talkin', from the movie Midnight Cowboy starring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voigt, and Without You, written by Pete Ham and Tom Evans from Badfinger. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
