Next week on the show, I'll be joined in the studio by Tom Locke. As you know, Tom is the creator, researcher and writer of the weekly feature, Moment In Time. We're going to do a mini special in the early portion of the show, Tribute Records to the Music and Artists of the '50s and '60s. Be sure to listen.

Happy Birthday to my good friend, long time listener, and weekly contributor to the show with Rick's Rare Rock And Roll Relic, Rick Canode in Madison, Wisconsin. All the best to you Rick. And best wishes also to Joel Drucker in Randolph, New Jersey; long time CHUM Toronto newsman, Mike Cleaver in Vancouver, British Columbia, and to Gerry O'Day in Penticton, British Columbia. 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 One Hit Wonder in celebration of our Annual One Hit Wonders Special. From Toronto, Ontario it's Motherlode in a rare promo clip for When I Die. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

As this coming week is the beginning of spring, it's a perfect week to spotlight one of the great Motown Girl Groups. Voice Your Choice presents Martha And The Vandellas. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page for either Heatwave or I'm Ready For Love. I'll play the winner in the third hour of next week's show. I wonder which song will end up the winner. A tie maybe?
