This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of April 7th, 2013

April 7th, 2013 to April 13th, 2013

The Chat Room was buzzing during this week's live show. The conversation was lively and topics varied, and it was great to welcome new friends and listeners, and as well, welcome back returning visitors. Some of the Nuts in the Hut have been getting together in the chat room ever Sunday night for years and years. I must say it does make for a different and enhanced listening experience. It's always very cool when there is almost a collective "aaahhh" when everyone hears a Lost Treasure, a song everyone remembers but haven't heard in years. Please consider stopping by the chat room for a visit during the live show next Sunday from 6 pm Pacific. Click Chat on any page of the website and then just follow the brief instructions. You too could become one of the famous Nuts in the Hut.

Be sure to mark your calendar for our Annual Name Game Special, Live Sunday, April 21st and on the Archive at the Listen page throughout the week. Every song during the special will have someone's name in the title. It's always a fun time. And if there's is a certain "someone" whose name you'd like to hear in the context of a song, be sure to let me know. Click the Requests button on any page of the website or call me on the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line at 206-339-0709. I look forward to hearing from you.

If you are about to celebrate your birthday, be sure to let me know so I can wish you Happy Birthday on the show and I'll play Birthday by The Beatles for you! Send the details to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing The Young Rascals and Groovin'. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents a former member of The Champs, and many other groups. You see, he was part of the Wrecking Crew, the collection of tremendously talented musicians who ended up playing on so many hit records, from Frank Sinatra to The Ronettes. I'm talking about the multi-talented Glen Campbell. Cast you vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either of these Glen Campbell hits: Honey Come Back or Galveston. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
