This Week on Treasure Island Oldies

October 15th, 2011 to October 22nd, 2011

It was sure good to be back with you this week after the equipment "meltdown" we experienced part way through last week's show. That was the first time in over 14 years that I was not able to continue the show. I just had absolutely no access to any music whatsoever, let alone the jingles, etc. So, I had no choice but to call it a day. Nonetheless, it is now behind us, hopefully. And many thanks for your kind emails I received as a result of the short 1 hour and 20 minute show. I appreciate your support.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Jim from 99.9 The Crow in McKinney, Texas, one of our Broadcast Partners Network stations. And Happy Birthday as well to Mike Dillon in 100 Mile House, British Columbia. I'd also like to thank you for your kind birthday wishes to me. It was wonderful receiving phone calls, emails and Facebook shout-outs with your good wishes. Cheers! If you have a birthday coming up, please let me know. Send the details to and I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play our official song, Birthday, by The Beatles.

Mark your calendar, "if you dare", for the 15th Annual Halloween Spooktacular coming up in two weeks on Sunday, October 30th. It's the most fun you can have while being scared stiff! Join us in the Crypt for the Live show beginning at 6 pm Pacific time and then for the remainder of the week on the Archive.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing one of Philadelphia's finest groups, The Stylistics and You Make Me Feel Brand New. By the way, feel free to sing along, as the lyrics to this great love song appear on the screen. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents The Foundations, a British group that some feel was the 'precursor' of another successful British band, Hot Chocolate, at least in style. They had several hits but, as always, only two songs are up for your votes. Would you like to hear Baby, Now That I've Found You or Build Me Up Buttercup? 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.

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, here's the link to put into your search.

It's been a while since I have received some new photos of listeners for our Listener Gallery. Let the world know you're a proud listener of Treasure Island Oldies! Send in your name, photo, city and province or state for the Listener Gallery to and our Webmaster, Eddy Fisher, will post it on the Listener Gallery page along with the many already received.

You can also let all your friends know you enjoy the show with your personal Treasure Island Oldies Email Signature. A selection of complimentary signatures to be placed at the end of your outgoing emails is available for download. Click Goodies on the upper Menu on any page on the website. Thanks to the many folks that have downloaded their own copy of the Email Signature. That's great!

I hope you have a great week and see you next Sunday for the live show.

Bye for now.
