This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

July 17th, 2011 to July 23rd, 2011

In case you did not get to listen to the Live show Sunday night, I began each hour with a Grass Roots song, in tribute to Rob Grill, the lead singer of the group who died last week. They sure had so many great records and so many hits. Glad to be able to play some of them for you on this week's show.

A couple more specials are coming your way. Get out your sunglasses. Next week it's our Technicolour Special, Sunday, July 24 and for the entire week on the Archive. All the songs with have a colour in the song title; it'll be vivid and full spectrum songs next week! Then the week of Sunday, August 7th, it's our annual Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special. You'll know every song, but not buy the lyrics - there aren't any. LOL From all the feedback I receive from listeners all around the world, this is one of the most anticipated specials of the year. And I'm definitely looking forward to it. Please mark your calendars for these two specials.

Although it's been a little quiet for birthdays the past few weeks , I would really like to know when you birthday is approaching. Send the details to me via an email to I'd be pleased to wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play our official birthday song by The Beatles, Birthday.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a great song from the '70s with the Climax Blues Band and Couldn't Get It Right. Enjoy!

Considering just how popular they were, how many hits they had, and how legendary the group became, it's not very often that The Beatles are featured on Voice Your Choice. We are remedying that this week with two of their many, many hits. Would you prefer to hear Blackbird or Yellow Submarine? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

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.
