This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

October 31st, 2011 to November 5th, 2011

Happy Halloween! What a scary, spooky and all round fun time we had on the 15th Annual Halloween Spooktacular. Don't be afraid if you missed the Live show; the Archive is available. Just click Listen on the Menu on any page of the website. And be sure to check out the Playlist on the same Listen page. You'll see the song name and artist for every song played on the show. Big thanks to our "Crypt-Master", Eddy Fisher, for the great Halloween decorations and very scary poster ads for our Halloween Spooktacular.

Mark your calendar for our next special. By request it's the return of our Music By Numbers Special on Sunday, November 13, 2011. Every song will have a number in the song title. And to make this fun for you, we're going to have a contest. All you have to do is listen to the entire four hour show, and all the while add up the ongoing value of all songs played. Once you've heard the entire show and added up all the songs, send your total to The deadline for submitting your correct answer is 11:59 p.m. Pacific time, Saturday, November 19, 2011. Send your entries with the correct total, your name and mailing address to In the event there is more than one correct answer received, a random draw will be made from all correct emails received and there will be one winner. The name will be announced on Treasure Island Oldies the week of November 20th.

Here we grow again. It is with great pleasure to welcome Radio Bavaria International to the Treasure Island Oldies Broadcast Partners Network. We'll be on the air on Radio Bavaria International every Wednesday evening from 8 p.m. to Midnight. Very much looking forward to playing great music for your enjoyment every week.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Dana VanDine in New Jersey, Heather Dillon in 100 Mile House, British Columbia, and Andy Desilets in Ottawa, Ontario. I'll play Birthday by The Beatles on next week's show for both of you. If you have a birthday coming up, please send the details via email to It would be my pleasure to wish you Happy Birthday on the show.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the all-time Halloween song for you. It's The Monster Mash by Bobby Boris Pickett and the Krypt Kickers. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents The Four Seasons with two of their many hit records for your votes this week. The choice is By Bye Baby (Baby Goodbye) or Dawn (Go Away). Which song would you like to hear?
