This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week Of November 3rd, 2013

November 3rd, 2013 to November 9th, 2013

Thanks for the many comments, emails and feedback from last week’s Halloween  Spooktacular. I do find it hard to believe at times that this was the 17th year for the special. Time has sure flown by since 1997, that’s for sure. And I always enjoy hearing from you with your requests as well. Click or Call. The Requests button is located on every page of the website and the Listener Line is available 24/7 at 206-339-0709.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Heather Dillon in 100 Mile House, British Columbia, Sunny in Elmhurst, Illinois and to Andy Desilets in Ottawa, Ontario. 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

I’m looking forward to bringing you the next special, Story Songs. It’ll be Live Sunday, November 17th and later on the Archive. There’ll be great songs featuring interesting narratives and stories such as El Paso by Marty Robbins.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Charlena by Richie Knight & The Mid-Knights. This was the first song by a Canadian group to hit the Number One Spot on the chart at 1050 CHUM Toronto. It’s a classic and our Song Of The Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice is featuring the amazing Dusty Springfield with two of her many hits. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me or All I See Is You. Can’t wait to play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week’s show.

Here’s the Rock And Roll News for the Week of November 4th

Have a great week.
