This Week on the Island - Week of July 20th, 2014

July 20th, 2014 to July 26th, 2014

Well the gremlins were at it again unfortunately. The 24/7 Continuous stream was down all day yesterday. In addition, the Live stream went down shortly into the 3rd hour of the live show. The good news is that the first two hours were not lost and the show continued to be recorded and archived. So when the Archives are back up and running, the entire Technicolor Special will be available for your enjoyment. I do apologize for these technical issues. Hopefully, these problems will be resolved in time for next week’s live  show.

Nonetheless, it was a lot of fun playing all those colourful songs on the Technicolor Special and my thanks to you for your Requests, whether via email or the Listener Line. Our next special is one that has become one of the most popular specials and shows of the entire year. Join me for the Live show Sunday, August 3rd for the Annual Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special. Back in the day, one could hear a lot of instrumental songs on the radio. Today there is very little except for the annual tribute to the great instrumentals of all time. And don’t worry about not knowing the words to the songs…there aren’t any! If you have a favourite instrumental you’d like to hear 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.

Remember if your birthday is approaching, be sure to let me know and I’ll play Birthday by The Beatles for you and wish you Happy Birthday on the show. Send the details to me at

Over at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog I am playing the song that started off the Technicolor Special this week. It’s Creedence Clearwater Revival with a live concert performance of Green River. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Next week Voice Your Choice presents Helen Reddy, one of the top female recording artists of the 1970s. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Angie Baby or Delta Dawn. I’ll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week’s show.

Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of July 20th.

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1963

Well that’s about all for this week’s update. Join me next week and I sure hope the gremlins will be long gone by then.

Bye for now.
