This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of September 9th, 2012

September 9th, 2012 to September 15th, 2012

Thanks for spending another four hours together again this week on the "Island". It's always a pleasure to have your company for however long you are available to listen. Even if you miss some or even an entire show, you can always catch up via the Archive at the Listen page. And thanks for your nice comments on our salute to Joe South, a terrific recording artist, songwriter and producer. I enjoyed playing some of Joe's hits along with song songs he wrote and produced for other artists such as Billy Joe Royal and Lynn Anderson. If you'd like to find out more about Joe South, I invite you to read my post at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog.

Just near the end of the live show, our Chat Room server went down and everyone got disconnected. It took me by surprise too, as I was also disconnected. Our network technicians are looking into the problem and hope to have everything resolved by next Sunday. If the problem persists, another option is in the works.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Scott Harmon in Phenix City, Alabama, my niece Sara Korytowski and friend and colleague Colin McDonald, both in Vancouver British Columbia. If you have 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 continues our tribute to Joe South with a song he wrote and produced for Billy Joe Royal. Here's Down In The Boondocks with Billy Joe Royal. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents The Spinners, with one song from their Motown days and the other when they later signed with Atlantic Records.. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page for either Could It Be I'm Falling In Love or It's A Shame. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
