This Week On Treasure Island Oldies

June 24th, 2012 to June 30th, 2012

Happy Summer! I'm pleased to say that nobody got a sunburn at the Annual Summer Beach Party, although a few were targeted by those seagulls. I warned everyone not to look up, or at least not with their mouth open. LOL It sure was a great with all those hot sizzling summertime hits. My thanks for your requests. I always enjoy receiving your requests, whether it be for an upcoming special or a regular show. And you can get in touch in two ways: Click the Requests button on any page of the website or Call the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line at any time 24/7 at 206-339-0709.

Next week we have another special lined up for you with our Annual Made In Canada Special. We spotlight the singers, groups, and songwriters who made a big impression across Canada and around the world. You'll be surprised at just how many big hit songs were made by Canadians. Don't miss the entertaining and educational special LiveSunday, July 1st beginning at 6 pm Pacific time, and on the Archive at the Listen page.

You may have noticed that we have done away with the "splash" page and incorporated the graphic throughout the rest of the website. The Treasure Island Oldies "album cover and record" artwork is the new logo for the website and show. I hope you like it.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Linda Guy in La Habra, California and my nephew Tony Gize in Airdrie, Alberta. They are also both frequent visitor to the Chat Room. 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 keeping with our Summer Beach Party theme with a real summertime anthem. We're playing The Beach Boys with Surfin' USA, and it's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents my friend, Andy Kim. This former Montrealer wrote or co-wrote many hit songs for himself as well as other artists. But this week we present two of hit hit songs. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page foreither Rock Me Gently or So Good Together. The winning song will get played in the 3rd hour of next week's Made In Canada Special.
