This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

November 6th, 2011 to November 12th, 2011

Thanks once again for the many great comments about our Halloween Spooktacular. I am glad you enjoyed it again this year. I always enjoy preparing and presenting special themed shows for you. 

Be sure to listen to next week for the Music By Numbers Special. You ask what is music by numbers? 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. Oh and just in case you thought you'd wait for the Playlist to appear on the Listen page before you submit your answer, for our Music By Numbers Special, the Playlist will be held until the entry deadline is over. Not that you'd ever do anything like that. LOL

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Sunny in Berkeley, Illinois, Dana VanDine in New Jersey, Heather Dillon in 100 Mile House, British Columbia, and Andy Diselets in Ottawa, Ontario. In addition, I'd like to wish Happy Birthday to Connie Canode in Madison, Wisconsin. Although her birthday isn't until November 16th, she and her husband Rick will be in Philadelphia celebrating her birthday in her hometown. A very Happy Birthday. And if you've got a birthday coming up, send the details to me at I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play our official birthday song for you by The Beatles, Birthday.

Once again, a big welcome to Radio Bavaria International in Munich, Germany, the latest station to join the Treasure Island Oldies Broadcast Partners Network. We'll be keeping you company for four hours of great music every Wednesday from 8 p.m. to Midnight local time.

To get you in the mood for our Music By Numbers Special next week on the show, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a rare clip of Eight Miles High by The Byrds. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents Bobby Bare with two of his great hits: Four Strong Winds and 500 Miles Away From Home. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. The winning song will be played on next week's show in the 3rd hour.

I have come across another app for your iPhone and Android. It's by TuneIn Radio, and comes in both free and paid versions. Using your smartphone, search for TuneIn Radio in your app store. Please let me know if you know of other apps that you would like to pass on to me and I'll let everyone know. And as a reminder, here are the links you need to listen to the show wherever you are. To listen to the 24/7 Stream, here's the link: I would really like to hear from you with your thoughts and comments. In the meantime, I'm working on getting a live stream, specifically for the Live show Sunday nights. I'll keep you informed.
