This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - September 1st, 2013 to September 14th, 2013

September 1st, 2013 to September 14th, 2013

Our Labour Day Back To School End Of Summer Special was a blast. Cramming three themes into one special was both a lot of fun and a challenge. Once again this week, there were a lot of requests and boy, were they ever good songs you requested. Thanks very much indeed. It was also a real treat to play the brand new song by Paul McCartney, called New. It is classic McCartney with a real vintage Beatles feel. I sure hope it becomes a smash for him; it is a smash for me at any rate. Being a huge Beatles fan, how could you not like this song! I played it twice, first time in the 1st hour and again near the end of the 2nd hour. The full album, produced by four different producers including the son of Beatles producer George Martin, Giles Martin. The album, appropriately also called New, will be released October 15 and I will preview it on the show for you.

You may have noticed that the dates for this week's update go from September 1st to September 14th. I will be taking off on vacation for one week. I'll be back with the next live show Sunday, September 15th. Next week I am pleased to bring you an Encore Presentation of the show from February 2008 when I was joined in the studio by Chad Allen, the original lead singer of The Guess Who. Chad shares memories and music of the early Chad Allen & The Expressions days. I know you'll enjoy this special show replay. It will be available on demand at the Listen page of the website and will also be streamed live on our Broadcast Partners Network station, The Legend. And of course, the Chat Room will be open as usual, so come over and meet the Nuts in the Hut. Click Chat and follow the simple instructions. I look forward to being with you Live September 15th.

Happy Birthday wishes to "Kitten" Connie in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Gypsy Fisher in Victoria, British Columbia, Joe Summers in Toronto, Ontario, Jimmy Lawson at our Broadcast Partners Network station Space Coast iRadio in Melbourne, Florida, and also to Cindy Williams in Vancouver, British Columbia. I was also pleased to play Cindy's Birthday by Johnny Crawford for her. 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 playing one of the greatest summertime songs of the '60s. It's The Shangri-Las, a great Girl Group with two sets of sisters, and the long Stereo version of their classic hit, Remember (Walking In The Sand). It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice will return on the next Live show September 15th, with Tommy James and The Shondells. You can cast your vote now at the Voice Your Choice page for either Ball Of Fire or Crystal Blue Persuasion. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of the show on September 15th.
