This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

April 15th, 2012 to April 21st, 2012

The weekly Rock & Roll News has been available as a podcast by itself for some time now. I'm thrilled to let you know that this weekly feature has really taken off in the past two months. The result is that it is now in the Top 5 of any Oldies Podcast in the world! And it's also in the Top 1000 of ALL podcasts. Thank you very much! And here is the Rock & Roll News for the week of April 15th.

It's been great hearing from some recent arrivals to the Island with requests coming in from these new listeners. I welcome your requests too. Call or Click. You can call and leave your voice message on the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line 24/7 at 206-339-0709. You can also Click on the Requests button on any page of the website. I look forward to hearing from you and to playing your requests on the show.

I invite you to join me for a milestone celebration of Treasure Island Oldies. It's the 15th Anniversary of the show and we'll be having a party the week of May 6th. I look forward to celebrating with you with a very special edition of the show.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Marjorie Conway Corbo in Bemidji, Minnesota. All the very best to you Marjorie. And if you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know. Send the details to and I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday, our official birthday song by The Beatles, for you.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the great British Diva, Dusty Springfield in a live performance of Son Of A Preacher Man. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents the great folk music trio, Peter, Paul & Mary with two of their signature songs for your votes this week: Leaving On A Jet Plane and If I Had A Hammer. Which song would you like me to play? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
