This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week of September 16th, 2012

September 16th, 2012 to September 22nd, 2012

As you know by now, the regular Chat Room server malfunctioned last week before the end of the show. And so far, the technicians at our network have been unable to repair it. I'd like to thank our Webmaster, Eddy Fisher, for his quick action in finding a great solution. He has put into place a new Chat Room that works really well and is quite easy to use. One thing is that we have not been able to have it tested for ease of access for the visually impaired. If you or someone you know is visually impaired and uses a screen reader, please ask them to try out the chat room and give us some feedback. One thing to be aware of is that this new chat room powered by X7 Chat is NOT compatible with mIRC software. It is a stand-alone item. I hope that you found it easy to use this week; and if you missed the live show, then I hope you'll give the new chat room a try. Just so you know, it is quite possible that this may become our permanent solution for the Chat Room. If you have any problems registering and/or logging in, please send an email to and we'll do our very best to help you.

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.

Sad news with word that Phyllis McGuire, one of the three McGuire Sisters, has died at age 84 from Parkinson's disease and age-related dimentia. More details are at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. I was pleased to pay tribute to the McGuire Sisters during both the Rock & Roll Reunion and the Spot Dance. If you missed the Live show, be sure to listen to the Archive at the Listen Page. And we continue our tribute at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog by playing a clip from the Perry Como TV show with guests The McGuire Sisters and they perform their million selling hit record, Sugartime. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy! Phyllis McGuire, R.I.P.

Voice Your Choice presents perhaps the quintessential folk-rock duo of the 1960s, Simon And Garfunkel. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page for either Scarborough Fair - Canticle or Homeward Bound. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
