This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

May 27th, 2012 to June 2nd, 2012

The Chat Room was the place to be this week on the show. We had lots of the regular Nuts in the Hut along with listeners and friends including three of our Broadcast Partners Network radio stations, Jim from 99.9 The Crow in McKinney, Texas, WKTH-FM's Duane in Terra Haute, Indiana, and Tom from in Edmonton, Alberta. And everyone had a great time. Next week be sure to stop by for a visit. Go to the Chat Page and follow the instructions. I look forward to seeing you soon.

On a technical note, the LIVE Real media feed is not available, However the Archive Real media is working fine and the current week's show is available by Monday following the live Sunday show. I want you to have a great listening experience and the recent technical problems with the live Real Media stream have resulted in a decision to stop using it. Please note the Windows Media stream works great and sounds great too.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Bruce Toews in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 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.

Mark your calendars for more specials coming your way. We present the Annual Father's Day Special Live June 17th and then the following week, June 24th, be sure to join us for the Annual Summer Beach Party Special. You can check out the complete list at the Specials Page. Click Listen then Specials. And next week, Tom Locke, the creator, researcher and writer of our weekly Moment In Time feature, will join me in the studio during the first hour of next week's show. We'll play some songs that were recorded by artists before they became famous. You Got To Start Somewhere is the theme. I know this is going to be fun and interesting.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing A Group Called Smith, later shortened to just Smith. Gayle McCormick was the powerful lead vocal for the group, and she later went on to record a couple of solo hits. This week's Song of the Week is Baby It's You, originally a hit for The Shirelles, Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents Timi Yuro with two of her signature hits: Hurt and What's A Matter Baby (Is It Hurting You). Cast your vote at theVoice Your Choice page for the song you'd like me to play. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
