This Week on Treasure Island Oldies

September 4th, 2011 to September 10th, 2011

Here we are at the end of Summer and to go with it our Annual Labour Day Back To School End Of Summer Special. I really enjoy preparing these themed specials, as there are so many great songs to choose from that relate to work, school and summer. And thank you for your requests, which fit perfectly into the show. Our next special will our Annual Canadian Thanksgiving Special, live Sunday, October 9th and all week on the Archive. If you'd like to hear a special "thank you" song, Be sure to let me know. Just click the Requests button on any page of the website of give me a call on the 24/7 Listener Line at 206-339-0709. I look forward to hearing from you. 

It was good hearing from Don and Julie Coco in Sacramento, California with his request for Stop! In The Name Of Love by The Supremes. And it was nice hearing from another California listener, Sharon Hutton, who wrote "Just love your show and have only been listening for a few months. I hear you on The Legend home of forgotten favorites on the internet. Thanks for all of the wonderful memories and music. Take care." Thanks very much Sharon!

A big welcome to CoveFM 94.3, the Voice of St. Margaret's Bay, Nova Scotia. They are the latest station to become part of the Treasure Island Oldies Broadcast Partners Network.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Kitten Connie in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Nuts in the Hut, also known as the Chat Room Regulars, all wish her the very best.
