This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

Week of April 22nd, 2012 to April 28th, 2012

I had a great time on the show with you again this week. It's always nice to hear from new listeners, either by an email request or with a phone call to the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line at 206-339-0709. It's also great to connect via Facebook and this week I've become friends with Tami Hill, Gerry Young, Steve Blair, Vic Holdroyd, Robert McGonigal and John Rowlands. Great to connect with you. Let's connect too. Follow me on Facebook.

We're just two weeks away from the Treasure Island Oldies 15th Anniversary Special and I invite you to join me for this great celebration. The show will be Live Sunday, May 6th from 6 to 10 Pacific time and later available at the Listen Page Archives.

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 paying tribute to the late Levon Helm of The Band with a live performance from The Last Waltz. The Band, along with The Staple Singers, perform The Weight. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents the darlings of the early 70s, The Carpenters, with two of their many hits. Vote now at the Voice Your Choice Page for either Only Yesterday or Top Of The World. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

I must say how surprised and pleased I am with how popular the weekly Rock & Roll News Podcast has become around the world. Of all Oldies Podcast in the world, the Rock & Roll News Podcast is #3. Thank You! In case you missed it in this week's show, here is the Rock & Roll News for the week of April 22nd.
