This Week on Treasure Island Oldies

December 4th, 2011 to December 10th, 2011
It's great to be in the think of the Christmas Music season. I love playing all the great Christmas classics from the '50s, '60s, and '70s, as well as some great Christmas lost treasures. Next week on the show, it will be all Christmas music, followed by our 15th Annual Treasure Island Oldies Christmas Special on Sunday, December 18th for the Live show, and available throughout the remainder of the holidays on the Archive at the Listen page.

Just a reminder to either send in your email with your Christmas dedication. Just send your noted to Of course, you can also call our 24/7 Listener Line at 206-339-0709 and record your greeting. I look forward to hearing from you in whatever way you prefer.

If you're looking for last minute Christmas gift ideas, consider stopping by the Treasure Island Oldies Shop The Island Store. There are all kinds of Treasure Island Oldies items, including both T and Sweat Shirts, Clock, Coffee mugs, and much more. Happy shopping! 

I'd like to take a moment to say a big thank you to Fay Greenwood and Matt Meaney for the terrific Hits From Across The Pond weekly feature they have been researching, writing and producing every week since 2009. It's been great to hear the story and the songs for many British hits that we never got to hear in Canada and the United States. Judging from the listener response, they too have enjoyed the feature immensely. After a break for a period of time, I would like to replay this series. Thanks again Fay and Matt. We'll miss the feature but enjoyed it while we had it on the show.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Paul McCartney with Wonderful Christmastime, a song that has become quite a classic Christmas Holiday classic. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans from producer Phil Spector's stable of artists. The two songs waiting for your votes are Here Comes Santa Claus and The Bells Of St. Mary's. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the VoiceYour Choice page and we'll play the winning song ion the 3rd hour of next week's show.

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

As the Holiday Season is now here, I'm going to keep the next few weekly updates a bit shorter. I have less time to write and you, my friend, have less time to read!! I hope you have a great week and see you next Sunday for the live show.

Bye for now.
