This Week on Treasure Island Oldies

September 18th, 2011 to September 24th, 2011

How does four hours go by as if it were four minutes? That's exactly how it seems every week on the show. The combination of playing your favourite songs, plus so many Lost Treasures, songs you clearly remember but haven't heard in so many years, is a key reason for why the show goes by so quickly. And judging from your  comments and requests, you also really enjoyed having your memory jogged with great music. Here's a few examples of some Lost Treasures I played on the show this week: the debut single by The Archies, Bang Shang-A-Lang, was a request for Chris in Iowa. It was also fun to play The Freeze by Tony And Joe, Call On Me by Bobby Blue Bland, The Miracles with a Motown classic, I Like It Like That, and so many more. If you have a song you'd like to hear, be sure to let me know. Click the Requests button on any page of the website of call the 24/7 Listener Line at 206-339-0709 to record your voicemail message. I look forward to hearing from you and playing your song on the show.

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. Tommy Roe performs his Number One hit song from 1969, Dizzy. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights one of Motown's great individual singers, Jimmy Ruffin. We have two of his classic songs for your votes this week: Gonna Give Her All The Love I've Got and What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted. WOW! This is going to be a tough decision to make on your part. Which song would you like me to play? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

More and more people are "going mobile" for their music listening; you can listen to both the live show and well as the 24/7 Stream on your SmartPhone. How, you ask? All you need is an app. I suggest They have a version for all types of smartphones, including Android and iPhone. Once you download the app, then here is the link to put into your search.

Bye for now.
