This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of September 22nd, 2013


September 22nd, 2013 to September 28th, 2013

It was great to be together again this week, as we start the fall season. And there are four more specials between now and the end of the year. The Annual Canadian Thanksgiving Special is set for October 13th, while our Halloween Spooktacular happens on October 27th this year. There's a Story Songs Special on November 17th, followed by the Annual Christmas Special December 22nd. So despite summer being over now, we've still got lots of great music and fun specials for you right here on the Island.

I received a nice email from listener Lynnsey Guerrero in Los Angeles. Lynnsey was saying he came across an interesting article on legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame DJ Dick Biondi, who he fondly remembers from when Dick was working at KRLA. Lynnsey concluded his email by saying, "Thank you, Michael, for continuing the legacy of great radio". Thank YOU, Lynnsey, much appreciated. You too can get in touch with me at any time by sending an email to me at I look forward to hearing from you.

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
