This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of March 3rd, 2013

March 3rd, 2013 to March 9th, 2013

I think somebody speeds up the clock every week; otherwise, how could four hours go by so quickly? That's how it felt yet again this week. It was great to get your requests, as usual, and yet again nice to have new folks come by the Chat Room. It was great how everyone welcomed Jeff in Idaho and made him feel right at home. He just discovered the show a couple of weeks ago on The Legend in Indianapolis, Indiana, one of our Broadcast Partners Network stations. You really don't know how much the Chat Room enhances your listening experience until you try it for yourself. There are always the regular Nuts in the Hut, as I refer to them. But in recent weeks, there have also been new first time visitors that had a blast. There are always lots of conversations going on about a particular song that is playing on the show. And it sparks such great memories and the sharing of those memories with each other. That's why Treasure Island Oldies is the soundtrack to your memories. I invite you to drop[ by during the live show Sunday nights from 6 to 10 pm Pacific time. As that old commercial used to go, try it - you'll like it. Just Click Chat on any page of the website and in no time, you too can be one of the Nuts in the Hut.

A couple of programming updates for your calendar - the week of March 17th it's our Annual One Hit Wonders Special and the following week, March 24th, Tom Locke will join me in the studio for a one hour mini special, Tribute Records to the Music and Artists of the 50s and 60s.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Rebecca Clee in Westbank, British Columbia, Roy Geldart in Campbell River, British Columbia, one of the voices you hear on the show every week with station IDs, Ed Weigle in Sarasota, Florida, and our good friend, singer and songwriter Paul Evans in New York City. 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 a great song by Brook Benton in a clip from the Ed Sullivan Show. It's Just A Matter Of Time is our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents The Fleetwoods, the pride of Olympia, Washington. Cast your vote at the Voice YourChoice page for either Come Softly To Me or Mr. Blue. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
