This Week OnTreasure Island Oldies

August 5th, 2012 to August 11th, 2012

Oh my! What a great time we had on this week's Annual Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special. I'd like to thank you for the many, many requests, both via the Requests Button on the website as well as the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line at 206-339-0709. It's no wonder that this particular show, which showcases some of the greatest instrumental hits of the '50s, '60s and '70s, gets so much reaction from listeners around the world. The feedback from many folks is their top 3 favourite specials of the years are the Instrumental Gems  Wordless Wonders, Halloween Spooktacular and, of course, the Christmas Special. While I love presenting every show for you, these three are among my favourites as well.

Mark your calendar for our next special, the Annual Labour Day End Of Summer Back To School Special. It will air Live Sunday, September 2nd and the next day on the Archives at the Listen Page. I must say though, I am in no hurry whatsoever for summer to end. This is my absolute favourite time of the year with the sun and heat in full force. I just wish I could be like the teachers and have every summer off. That would be amazing!

I've been getting more enquiries from various stations around the world asking about if they can carry Treasure Island Oldies on their station. Hopefully we will be adding more stations to our Broadcast Partners Network in the near future. If you know of a station that you think should have the show on their station, be sure to get in touch with them or let me know the name and city and I'll get ion touch with them. We just keep on growing!

Having a birthday is one's very special day, focused on recognizing the unique individual you are. And I'd sure like to help celebrate your birthday by wishing you Happy Birthday on the show and also by playing Birthday by The Beatles. Send the details of your name, city and birthday date to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is keeping up our Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders theme this week. We're playing Booker T & The MGs in a classic, very hot live performance of Green Onions. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

We get very soulful for next week's Voice Your Choice as we feature The Chi-Lites. Cast your vote at the Voice YourChoice page for either Have You Seen Heror Oh Girl. This is going to be a close result I feel. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Here is this week's Rock & Roll News for the Week of August 5th, 2012

And here's the Top 5 Countdown from this week in 1960.

Be sure to enjoy the show while you're on the go this summer with your iPhone, or other smartphone, and 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.
