This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

August 28th, 2011 to September 3rd, 2011

Thanks for another fun week on the show, as we progress closer to the end of summer. With that in mind, please be sure to join me for our Annual Labour Day Back To School End Of Summer Special. We'll be playing work-type, school-related and the last of the summer songs for the season. And if you'd like to hear a song on next week's show, please let me know ASAP. Just click the Requests button on any page of the website or give me a call and record your request on the 24/7 Listener Line at 206-339-0709. I look forward to hearing from you and playing your special song.

If you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know by sending an email to I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

Thank you also for your emails regarding the impromptu tribute to both Jerry Leiber and Nicholas Ashford, two tremendously talented and successful songwriters, along with their respective writing partners, Mike Stoller and Valerie Simpson, respectively. Leiber and Stoller and Ashford and Simpson wrote many, many hit songs, and it was great to play some of them for you during the show.

Voice Your Choice spotlights two great School-related songs for your votes. School Is Out and School Is In, both hit songs for Gary U.S. Bonds, are waiting for you votes. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song on next week's Annual Labour Day Back To School End Of Summer Special.
