This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of March 2nd, 2013

March 2nd, 2014 to March 8th, 2014

It was great to spend another four hours together this week on Treasure Island Oldies. And occasionally I will hear from a listener who indicated they missed hearing the show on Sunday night. Have no fear, the Live show is always recorded for playback at the Archive. You can either listen to the three most recent individual shows in Real Media, or there is the 24/7 Stream in Windows Media, which airs the three most recent shows as well in a continuous loop. Every week the oldest show is replaced with the latest, so you always hear recent shows. It’s all at the Listen page.

Speaking of hearing from listeners, I received an email from Don Giecek who was inquiring about a group from near Philadelphia called The Sinceres. He wanted to know if I knew the name of the lead singer. While I was unable to confirm the lead singer, I was able to let him know that one of the members was a fellow by the name of Malloy William. In fact, I will play a single by them on the Richie label, which was at the time distributed by Roulette Records. Be listen next week on the show for Please Don’t Cheat On Me by The Sinceres. And thanks for getting in touch with me, Don.

We’re two weeks away from the March special on the show. Be sure to listen March 16 and later on the Archive for The Name Game Special. Every song will have a name in the song title. Maybe you’ll hear Sheila, Tommy, Barbara Ann, Lucille, Diana, and who knows who else.

Happy Birthday wishes this week to Roy Geldart in Campbell River, British Columbia, Stuart Olesen in Portland, Maine and to my friend and successful singer and songwriter, Paul Evans in New York City. If you have a birthday approaching be sure to le me know so that I can extend birthday wishes to you and also play Birthday by The Beatles. Send the information to

Have a great week and see you next Sunday at 6 pm Pacific time for the Live show.

Bye for now.


P.S. Don’t forget to adjust your clock one hour ahead next Saturday night before you go to bed. You won’t want to miss the start of next week’s show.
