This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of September 29, 2013

September 28th, 2013 to October 5th, 2013

It's amazing just how quickly four hours can go by; and that was the case again this week. The time just seemed to zip by and before you knew it, it was the last hour of the show. No wonder there's the expression 'time flies'. It sure does on the Island. And the Chat Room is a major contributor to the time passing quickly, with all the regulars and visitors and enjoying each other's company and the conversations. You should come by for a visit yourself. Click Chat on any page of the website and use the easy to follow instructions. We look forward to welcoming you as one of the Nuts in the Huts during the next Live show.

I also really enjoy hearing from you with your requests and stories as to why a particular song means a lot to you. Call or Click. The Listener Line at 206-339-0709 is available to you 24/7 to call and record your message. You can also click the Requests button on any page of the website. I'll do my best to play your song, but please just remember that it had to have charted on the Hot 100 between 1955 and 1979.

Once again this week I was pleased to play on the show a brand new song by one of the heritage artists of our time. Elton John has a brand new album released this week, The Diving Board. It's "back to basics" with regard to the arrangement style. If you're a fan, I know you enjoyed the first single, Home Again.

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 Buffalo Springfield and their signature hit For What It's Worth. It's our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

One of Motown's youngest stars when he got his first hit is in the spotlight this week on Voice Your Choice. Stevie Wonder was only 13 years old when Fingertips Pt 2 became a hit for him. This week we feature two of his many other hits. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either I Was Made To Love Her or My Cherie Amour. I'll play the winning song on next week's show in the 3rd hour.

Here's the Rock And Roll News for the week of September 29th

Hope you have a good week.

Bye for now.
