The Week of April 8, 2012 On Treasure Island Oldies

April 8th, 2012 to April 14th, 2012

Wow, that was great hearing all those fantastic songs again on our annual One Hit Wonders Special on Treasure Island Oldies. I bet there is quite the story behind every artists who only scored one hit on the Top 100 charts. After all, with such great hit records under their belt, one would have thought that they could easily have had another. But it didn't turn out that way. And this week we've spotlighted some of the best One Hit Wonders for your listening enjoyment. Thanks for your requests; they always add to the show.

Be sure to mark you calendar for our next special, the Treasure Island Oldies 15th Anniversary Special the week of May 6th. It's surprising to me how so many years have already passed since the first show on May 4, 1997. And how the show has grown! You can listen on 28 FM, AM, and Online Radio Stations in New Zealand, Singapore, Scotland, Sweden, Germany, England, USA, and Canada, all part of the Broadcast Partners Network, as well as online here at the Treasure Island Oldies website plus the Mediaontap Network. I look forward to celebrating with you the week of May 6th.

If you have a birthday coming up, be sure to let me know. Send the details to birthdays@treasureislandoldies.com 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 continuing with out One Hit Wonders theme this week by playing Motherlode and the classic When I Die. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

I continue to hear from many listeners who have let me know how pleased they are to be able to listen to the show while they are on the go via their smartphones by using the Tune In Radio app. You can listen to the latest show, the Rock & Roll News Podcasts, and the live show as well. Just be sure that to do a search for the live show, it will have to have started in order for it to appear in the live stations results.

Hope you have a great week. See you on next week's show.

Bye for now.
