This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Update Week of August 26, 2012

August 26th, 2012 to September 1st, 2012

As we approach the Labour Day  long weekend, here's a reminder of our Annual Labour Day, End Of Summer, Back To School Special coming your way next week. Join me for the Live show September 2nd and all week on the Archives at the Listen Page. You'll need to hurry to get your requests to me if you want to hear a song on the show. Click Requests on any page of the website or Call the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line at 206-339-0709.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Carl Fiset in Quebec City, Quebec. If you've got a birthday coming up, send the details of your name, city and birthday date to I'd sure like to help celebrate your birthday too, by wishing you Happy Birthday on the show and also by playing Birthday by The Beatles.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing one of the great singers, who sadly is no longer with us. I never got a chance to see him perform in concert, so I'll have to be satisfied with seeing him in videos. It's the great Gene Pitney with 24 Hours From Tulsa. It's our Song Of The Week.

It was a really close race on Voice Your Choice when we featured Ray Charles. This week we spotlight the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page for either A Big Hunk Of Love or Heartbreak Hotel. I wonder if the results will be close once again like it was with Ray Charles. Whichever song is the winner, I'll play it in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Here is this week's Rock & Roll News for the Week of August 26th, 2012
And here's this week's Top 5 Countdown from 1961.

I'm so glad to hear from listeners who've been enjoying the show on their iPhone and Android. Very cool indeed! You can too. All you need is 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 the show title to appear in the live stations results.
