This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week of January 6, 2013

January 6th, 2013 to January 12th, 2013

Happy New Year! I sincerely hope and trust you had an enjoyable Christmas and a great New Year celebration with your family and friends. I wish you all the very best for 2013.

Wasn't that a party! Our Annual New Year Dance Party is such a great way to kick off a new year. Many thanks for your requests and so great to be back to normal with our regular features and show contributors once again. And speaking of requests, I'd be pleased to do my very best to play your requests on the show. Just click the Requests button on any page of the website or call the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line any time of the day or night at 206-339-0709 and record your message. I look forward to hearing from you throughout the year.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Shirley Ham in Cincinnati, Ohio. If you have a birthday coming up, send the details of your name, city and birthday date to I'll help you celebrate by wishing you Happy Birthday on the show and I'll also play Birthday for you  by The Beatles.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing one of the quintessential dance songs of all time, and a song that has the distinction of being the only record to reach the Number One spot on the charts twice - in 1960 and again in 1962. It's Chubby Checker performing The Twist on American Bandstand and our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights the softer side of the 1970s this week with Bread. Fronted by David Gates on lead vocals, he was also quite a force in the early 60s as a writer and producer for many artists including Pat Boone, The Cookies, The Murmaids, and others. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either It Don't Matter To Me or Baby I'm-a Want You. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Here this week's Rock & Roll News for the week of January 6, 2013.

And here's our first Top 5 Countdown spotlighting the year 1961.

Hope you have a great week and I'll see you next week on the show.

Bye for now.
