This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of September 15th, 2013

September 15th, 2013 to September 21st, 2013

I'm glad to back with you again this week after a wonderful vacation in Canada's desert, Osoyoos, British Columbia in the Okanagan Valley. Osoyoos and the surrounding area including Oliver are in a micro climate resulting in a true desert. There's sage brush, a variety of cacti, snakes, etc. Wonderful warm and sunny. It's the perfect environment for the dozens of wineries in the area, all growing multi-award winning wines. Rented a 31 foot Class A rv. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be in a luxury motorhome, you've gotta try it. Like a hotel on wheels. I really enjoyed it and will do it again. Thank you for the very warm welcome back during the live show. And it was great to hang out in the Chat Room with the Nuts In The Hut once again this week. Looking forward to a great fall with you and more of our specials. I'm also looking forward to being part of the lineup of shows when Peachland Community Radio debuts at the beginning of October. We'll be live on the station every Sunday evening at our usual time from 6 to 10 pm Pacific.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Scott Harmon in Phoenix City, Alabama, Sara Koratowski in New Westminster, BC, James Gardner in Victoria, BC and Colin MacDonald in Vancouver, BC. Lots of birthdays this week; and 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

This week marks the official return of a feature that was part of the show at its very beginning in 1997. To highlight the return of Compare The Hits, the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Neil Diamond with a live performance of Kentucky Woman. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents a smooth R&B singer from the 1950s, Tommy Edwards, best known for the classic It's All In The Game. This week we present two of his other hits for your votes. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Please Mr. Sun or Morning Side Of The Mountain. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
