This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of May 18th, 2014

May 18th, 2014 to May 24th, 2014

Another week and another four hours together on Treasure Island Oldies. Even after bringing the show to you every week for over 17 years now, it is still fun , fresh and exciting. Thank you. And I’m pleased to let you know that we have yet another station joining the Broadcast Partners Network. I know you join me in welcoming WRSG-FM, serving the tri-cities of Sistersville, Middlebourne and St. Mary’s in West Virginia. We’ll be on the station every Thursday from 8 pm to Midnight. And over in Ireland, Able Radio Cork will air the show twice weekly: Mondays from 8 pm to Midnight and again Sundays from 12 Noon to 4 pm. Peachland Radio in Peachland, British Columbia will have all of the shows on their station for listening on demand. Knowing how busy people are, they don’t want to schedule specific shows and certain days and times. They just had the official launch this weekend with their First Annual Peach Jam Festival. I sincerely hope it was a big success. I am pleased and proud to be on these three new stations.

Mark your calendars for our upcoming specials. Sunday, June 15th it’s the Annual Father’s Day Special, with the following week the Summer Beach Party, June 25th and then on June 29th it’ll be our Annual Made In Canada Special. If there is a song you’d like me to play during one of these specials, be sure to let me know. Click Requests on any page of the website or Call the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line at 206-339-0709.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Cora Quinn in Peoria, Illinois. She even called into the show with a couple of requests. And she didn’t even mention it was her birthday this week. But I already knew! If your birthday is coming up soon, let me know. I’d love to wish you Happy Birthday on the air and play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing another song by Jay and the Americans. This time it’s Cara Mia and it’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice spotlights a teen group from the Rock and Roll era, Joe Bennett and the Sparkletones. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Penny Loafers And Bobby Socks or Black Slacks. I’ll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week’s show. It seems they specialized in songs for the wardrobe. LOL

Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of May 18th.

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1963.

Well that’s about it for this week. If there’s any breaking news be sure to visit the Treasure Island Oldies Blog.

Bye for now.
