March 9th, 2014 to March 15th, 2014
Treasure Island Oldies has gone to the dogs! Well actually, 1610 The Dog, in Bonham, Texas. It’s the latest station to become part of the Treasure Island Oldies Broadcast Partners Network. The Chief Dog at the station, Jim, says he will simulcast the live show every Sunday night at 8 PM local time. He promises to give a long leash to the show. LOL On a sad note, we say so long to Brian and the gang at TEAM-FM in England. Unfortunately the station will cease to broadcast this week. It’s been wonderful being a TEAM member and I wish everyone good health and success in the future.
Next week it’s the Annual Name Game Special beginning at 6 pm Pacific time. Every song will have a person’s name in the song title like Sheila, Michael, Bobby, Jimmy, Barbara, etc. You get the idea. I’m also looking forward to playing your Name requests on the show next week.
Happy Birthday wishes go out to twin sisters Lindsay and Allison in Toronto, Ontario and my thanks to Alexander Vanengelen in Montreal, Quebec for the tip. It’s his girlfriend Allison celebrating with her sister ion Toronto. And if you have a birthday coming up soon or someone you know whose birthday is approaching, be sure to let me know. I’ll wish them Happy Birthday and play Birthday by The Beatles. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Dion in an early music video clip of Donna The Prima Donna. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!
Voice Your Choice presents a family of singers: The Ames Brothers. They were a staple on the charts throughout the 1950s. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either My Bonnie Lassie or Tammy. I’ll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week’s Name Game Special.
Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of March 9th.
Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1962
Well that’s it for this week. Be sure to join me for The Name Game Special next week.
Bye for now.
