This Week on Treasure Island Oldies

September 11th, 2011 to September 17th, 2011

Summer refuses to go away here in Vancouver, and I am NOT complaining! It sure gave me incentive to play some hot tunes for you this week. Boy, it was great to dig up some Lost Treasures for you, including Billy Abbott And The Jewels; and what a story behind that song. His real name was William Vaughn but did not want to get confused with Billy Vaughn the  orchestra leader (Sail Along Silv'ry Moon). And The Jewels were actually The Tymes (So Much In Love). All in all, it was great to hear this One Hit Wonder's song again, Groovy Baby, from 1963.

It's been wonderful having family members visiting; cousin Debbie from Montreal, and cousin Marty from Chicago. One of Marty's favourite songs is In The Year 2525 by Zager & Evans, which I was happy to play for him on the show. If you have a request, please get in touch by either clicking the Requests button on any page of the website, or call the 24/7 Listener Line at 206-339-0709. I'd love to hear from you and play your special song.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to long time listener and Chat Room regular, Scott Harmon in Phenix City, Alabama, in the heart of Dixie! If you have a birthday approaching, let me know by sending the details to I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the winning song from this week's Voice Your Choice, Any Way You Want It by the Dave Clark Five. It's a performance clip from the TV show Shindig, and our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents Tommy Roe with two of his late '60s hits for your votes: Heather Honey and Dizzy. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice pagesure . We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
