This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

July 24th, 2011 to July 30th, 2011

"The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades". You may think that after our very bright Technicolour Special! It was a lot of fun playing so many colourful songs on this week's show. If you did not get to hear the live show, it's available on the Archive page in Real Media and as part of our 24/7 Stream in Windows Media of the three most recent shows. And thanks for your requests. I always enjoy hearing from you.

Our next special is in two weeks, our Annual Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special, live Sunday, August 7th. It's a rare opportunity to go back to a time when an instrumental song was not a rare event, but very common and frequent. We'll play some of the great instrumental hits of all time from the '50s, '60s, and '70s. I know you will want to listen to this show, as from listener feedback, this is one of the most anticipated and most enjoyed specials of the entire year.

I was saddened to hear of the death of Dan Peek, one of the three original members of America. They were a terrific group, with great vocals and fantastic production by the legendary George Martin. The wonderful thing about music is that once recorded, it is with us forever, like a great memory. Dan, thanks for so many great music memories.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is continuing with our Technicolour Special theme this week by playing Green Onions by Booker T & The MGs. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents Tommy James & The Shondells with two of their many hits: Draggin' The Line and I Think We're Alone Now. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page and 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. 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.
