This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of July 21st, 2013

July 21st, 2013 to July 27th, 2013

It was a case of unfortunate and fortunate. It was unfortunate that we lost the live stream during the second hour of this week's live show. However it was fortunate that the show was still encoding or recording so nothing was lost. We were able to get back on the air live at the beginning of the third hour and there were no other problems. If you missed most of the second hour, you can hear the entire show at the Archive Page at the website.

Despite the technical issue, the Technicolor Special was a lot of fun with so many songs with a colour in the song title played throughout the show. Thanks for your requests. Our next special is one of the most popular specials of the entire year. Join me Live Sunday, August 4th for our Annual Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special.After the live show, the Archive will be available for listening on demand. If you have a favourite instrumental hit you'd like to hear, be sure to let me know and I'll do my best to play it for you. Click the Requests Button on any page of the website or call me on the Listener Line at 206-339-0709 to record your request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to my good close friend, Dorothy Allen in Vancouver, BC, Doug Thompson in Aurora, Ontario and Tommy Lam in Vancouver, BC. If you have a birthday coming up, I invite you to let me know so that I can wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is keeping up with our Technicolor Special by playing Booker T. & The MGs in a clip from the TV show, Hollywood A Go Go, with Green Onions. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents the first TV idol, Ricky Nelson, who got his start on his parents TV show, The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet. Cast your vote for either Hello Mary Lou or Travellin' Man. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
