This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week of January 19th, 2014

January 19th, 2014 to January 25th, 2014

It always surprises me just how quickly the four hours go by every week while doing the show. The pace of the programming, the emails, the chat room and all the great interaction make the time fly. The Chat Room was also busy and we welcomed back Shirley from Cincinnati, Ohio. She’d been having problems with her computer and was unable to come by the chat room for a period; but everything is back to normal for her. Welcome back, Shirley. Everyone missed you and your company. And we’d more than welcome your company as well. On Sunday nights during the Live show, come to the website and click Chat. Follow the instructions and you’ll soon be among a nice group of people who have become good friends over the years.

Isn’t it hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since The Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and their popularity went through the roof. I mentioned on the show that I’ll be featuring a different Beatles songs from 1964 weekly on the BBC – Big Beatles Classic – feature on the show during the first half hour.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Fred Waterer in St. Catharines, Ontario and to my sister, Louise Godin, in Gatineau, Quebec. And if you have a birthday approaching, let me know by sending the details to I’ll wish you Happy Birthday on the air and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the Grass Roots and Midnight Confessions. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights Simon and Garfunkel with two of their many hits. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Fakin’ It or My Little Town. I’ll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week’s show.
