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

August 31st, 2014 to September 6th, 2014

This week’s show is like having three specials in one! It’s the annual Labour Day Back To School End Of Summer Special this week on Treasure Island Oldies. And I’d like to thank you for your email and Listener Line Requests once again this week. It was cool to play a real Lost Treasure from Steve Lawrence, Can’t Wait For Summer; and this week’s Rock and Roll Relic, School Bus by Kris Jensen, was a great fit with the special. Thanks very much.

Last week on the show I featured songs from the brand new CD, Long Lost Hits And Rarities by the Montreal group, The Sceptres. I was pleased to be able to give away five copies of the album which will be autographed by all surviving members of the group. Here are the winners: Barb Frazier in Norwalk, California; Matt Meaney in Langley, British Columbia; Chris Witmer in Iowa City, Iowa; Rick Canode in Madison, Wisconsin; and Paul Carter Jr. in Ellicott City, Maryland. Congratulations! It’s fantastic at the diverse cities where listeners live and yet they all come to The Island.

Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Cindy Williams in Vancouver, British Columbia and Connie “Kitten” Howe in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. And if your own birthday is coming up, be sure to let me know. Send the details to and I’ll wish you Happy Birthday on the air and also play The Beatles and Birthday for you.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Bobby Rydell with Swingin’ School. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Next week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents two great Motown Stars, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Your Precious Love or Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing. I’ll play the winner next week on the show during the 3rd hour.

Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of August 31st

Well that’s about all for this week. Be sure to listen to the Archive of this week’s triple-themed special.

See you next week on the Island.

Bye for now.
