This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of November 16th, 2014

November 16th, 2014 to November 22nd, 2014

Howdy y’all! :-) Wow was that ever fun to play all those great all-time classic country tunes on the Pop Goes The Country Special this week on Treasure Island Oldies. It didn’t matter if it was the ‘50s, ‘60s’ or the ‘70s, when a country record became huge it often “crossed over” from the country charts to the Pop charts, and at times to other charts as well, such as the rhythm and blues and adult contemporary charts.  Now THAT is the power of great music! And I very much appreciate that you too love great music and country music as well. I’m so pleased with the response I have already received from this week’s show. Several listeners indicated they thought it was actually one of the best specials ever on the show. Thank you very much! And there will be more specials too. Our last special show will be this year’s Annual Christmas Special. The show will be Live Sunday, December 21st and on the Archive throughout the rest of the Christmas Holiday Season.

And get ready for 2015 when we will celebrate the 18th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies. More details soon…

Best wishes and Happy Birthday to long time listener of the show and good friend of mine and the folks in the Chat Room, Connie Canode, in Madison, Wisconsin. In addition, I’d like to say Happy Birthday to my nephew Andrew Gize in Gatineau, Quebec, and to J.P. Guilbert, in St. Maarten in the Caribbean. I had the great pleasure to work with J.P. during my almost 11 years with A&M Records. If your birthday is coming up soon, please be sure to let me know. It would be my pleasure to wish you all the best on the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is continuing with the Pop Goes The Country theme by playing a great live performance of Patsy Cline singing Crazy. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice returns again next week with The Byrds. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Eight Miles High or Mr. Tambourine Man. I’ll play the winner during the 3rd hour of next week’s show.

Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of November 16th

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1962.

Before wrapping things up, I’d like to take a moment to wish all my American friends and listeners a very Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your long weekend of celebrating with your family and friends.

Well that’s about it for this week. Take care and see you once again next week on treasure Island Oldies.

Bye for now.
