This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of March 31st, 2014

March 31st, 2014 to April 5th, 2014

I was pleased that several listeners noticed hearing some new jingles on the show this week. I try to keep the show sounding fresh after almost 17 years, and that’s not easy at times. LOL The jingles are an important element in the show overall and I appreciated you remarking on these new ones. Keeping the show fresh sounding is one of the reasons that there is the occasional Spontaneous Special, like the Sweet Soul Music show last week. Speaking of specials, next week it the Annual One Hit Wonders Special. If you’ve never heard this special in previous years, I am sure you will be surprised to hear so many songs you know and love. But what may surprise you is the fact that every artist or group you’ll hear on next week’s show will have only made one appearance on the charts. It’s hard to believe, but very true. So be sure to listen next week.

It was nice to welcome Caralee from Sacramento, California, to the Treasure Island Oldies Chat Room. She fit in great with the rest of the Nuts in the Hut, the Chat Room Regulars. We’d love to welcome you too. Click Chat on any page of the website and just follow the instructions.

It was very nice hearing from Bill Holmes, a new listener, but a seasoned music veteran. Bill played drums with Ronnie Dove and requested that I play One Kiss For Old Times’ Sake, a hit for Ronnie in 1965. I’d love to hear from you too.

This week’s Top 5 Countdown is a milestone is music history. Never before or since this week in 1964 has every song in the Top 5 been by the same artist or group. It’s The Beatles who achieved this major music history event, and are those five songs by the Fab Four ever great!

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Ineyda Velasquez in Homestead, Florida, Red Robinson in Vancouver, British Columbia who is also in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and to my great life-long friend, Frank Vandeven in Lillooet, British Columbia. If your birthday is coming up, let me know so that I may send birthday wishes to you and play Birthday by The Beatles. Send the details to
