15th Anniversary This Week Of Treasure Island Oldies

May 6th, 2012 to May 12th, 2012

Wasn't that a party! The 15th Anniversary Special of Treasure Island Oldies was a huge success. I'd like to thank you for the very many emails, phone calls, facebook messages, etc. that I received. Even the Chat Room was packed and only two Nuts In The Hut shy of tying the record for the most folks in the Chat Room! What a great time we had together. I was truly taken by the outpouring of congratulations and best wishes from everyone. These wishes came from both long time and recent listeners as well as some very well known broadcasters. I'm flattered. It was also fun reminiscing and sharing memories of the early days of the show and to play a couple of clips from the very first show back on May 4, 1997. And I'm very proud of how much the show has grown. I would never have thought that from its small beginnings back in 1997 that the show would grow to include many radio stations around the world that air it weekly via the Broadcast Partners Network. I sincerely hope to continue to bring you the best music anywhere for many more years to come right here on "The Island". Finally, my thanks to our excellent Webmaster, Eddy Fisher, for creating our 15th Anniversary logo. You'll be seeing it throughout the website and the Blog.

Be sure to join us for our yearly tribute to moms everywhere next Sunday, May 13th for our Annual Mother's Day Special. There'll be tons of songs for and about Mom, Mother, Mum, Mammy, Momma; all next week on Treasure Island Oldies.

I can't think of a more fitting song to play for you this week at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. It's the very first song I played on the show when it debuted May 4, 1997. From Spain, it's Los Bravos with Black Is Black. And on the occasion of the 15th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies, it's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents The Chambers Brothers. These guys didn't have that many hits, but we have two of their best for your votes. Would you like to hear Time Has Come Today or I Can't Turn You Loose? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour during next week's Mother's Day Special.

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.
