This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of August 11th, 2014

August 10th, 2-14 to August 16th, 2014

Another week and another fun four hours with you on the Island.. I love being able to play so much music every hour and without stopping every five minutes for 5 minutes of commercials. LOL I like being able to do the show this way, but it does limit the revenue opportunities. That’s why I very much appreciate your Support for the show via PayPal. Did you know that you can make a recurring donation in whatever amount you wish to donate. You can also do a monthly subscription for $4.95. Some make a donation a few times a year with a bit more substantial amount. Whatever you are able to do it very much appreciated. Please click the PayPal button at the website for more details. Thanks very much.

The month of August represents the 15th Anniversary of the Tom Locke Moment In Time on the show. To celebrate and recognize the milestone, Tom Locke will join me in the studio during the first hour of next week’s show. We’ll reminisce about how the feature got started and how Sorrells Pickard and his wonderful peanut butter company became involved as a sponsor. And we’ll play some interesting Moments In Time as well. It all starts next Sunday at 6 PM Pacific, 1 am to 5 am UTC Universal time.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Matt Meaney, my good friend in Langley, British Columbia. If you have a birthday approaching, be sure to let me know. I’ll play Birthday by The Beatles for you and also wish you Happy Birthday on the air. Just send the details to

If you heard this week’s Live show, you’ll have heard me tell you about some new Seniors Texting Codes. Here are some for you to remember (LOL): ATD: At The Doctors; BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth; FWIW: Forget Where I Was; IMHO: Is My Hearing-Aid On; OMMR: On My Massage Recliner; OMSG: Oh My! Sorry, Gas; ROFLACGU: Rolling On The Floor Laughing And Can’t Get Up; and last but not least, TTY: Talk To You Louder. There - these should be of tremendous help! ROFL

If you happen to be in Nova Scotia next weekend, go to the South Shore and Liverpool on the Mersey River for the 24th Annual Hank Snow Tribute. Tickets are NOT expensive and for an additional $10 you’ll get either a lobster or roast beef dinner. Where do I line up? J

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing a very nice live performance by Chad and Jeremy. Yesterday’s Gone is our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Canada’s Joni Mitchell is in the spotlight next week on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Help Me or Big Yellow Taxi. I’ll play the winner next week during the 3rd hour of the show.

Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of August 10th

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1963

That’s about all for this week. Be sure to listen next week when Tom Locke will join me in the studio as we celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Moment In Time.

Bye for now.
