This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of May 19th, 2013

May 19th, 2013 to May 25th, 2013

It's interesting how fast seven days goes by until we're back together again enjoying our favourite music here on the "Island". And if you think that seven days go by quickly, it's uncanny how fast the show's four hours go by so quickly. One thing for sure, we're never bored at Treasure Island Oldies. And it's always so cool to play not only your favourites, but also lots of Lost Treasures, songs you haven't heard in years but vividly remember nonetheless. It was great to start off the show with Shake And Fingerpop by Jr. Walker & The All Stars. It was also fun to hear Tom Northcott's 1941; haven't played it on the show since 2007! In case you missed the live show, be sure to enjoy the Archive at the Listen page. You'll hear a ton of great music.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Cora Quinn in Peoria, Illinois. A good friend of hers passed on her birthday information, so she had no idea I was going to celebrate her birthday on the show until she was actually listening to the live show. Good fun. And 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

Be sure to mark your calendar for some upcoming specials: on June 16th it's our Annual Father's Day Special, our Summer Beach Party, June 23rd and then our Annual Made In Canada Special on June 30th. Phew!! We're gonna have us some fun with these specials.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing The Kickerbockers with their smash Beatles-sounding Lies. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents one of the longest lasting groups in history. The Dells kept their exact original line-up from the early 1060's and into the '80s with a fantastic blend of voices. And this week we have two of their great recordings for you. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Wear It On Our Face or Stay In My Corner. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
