November 30th, 2014 to December 6th, 2014
Well it was great to begin playing Christmas songs on this week’s show. Next week I’ll play even more and the following week it will be all Christmas tunes, followed by our Annual Christmas Special on Sunday, December 21st, beginning at 6 pm Pacific, 1 am Universal.
My condolences go out to long time listener and friend, Connie Canode in Madison, Wisconsin. She received the sad news near the end of Thanksgiving Weekend that her step dad has passed away. My thoughts are with you, Connie.
I’m excited to let you know that 2015 marks the 18th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies and we’re going celebrate in style! There will be 18 Specials throughout the year for your enjoyment. And I’ve teamed up with our friends at TNJ Poster Creations, to bring you a new monthly contest. Get all the details by clicking here. I’m really looking forward to an exciting year in 2015 and this contest will be a great way to celebrate. The first winner will be announced on the first show of 2015, the New Year Dance Party on Sunday, January 4th, 2015. So now is the time to enter to be eligible to be the January winner. There will be a new winner every month!
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Lennart Persson in Gothenberg, Sweden. If your birthday is coming up, let me know so that I can play Birthday by The Beatles and also wish you Happy Birthday on the show. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Treasure Island Oldies Blog goes to the movies for this week’s Song of the Week. It’s John, Paul, George and Ringo, The Beatles in a sizzling clip from their debut motion picture A Hard Day’s Night performing Tell Me Why. The bonus is that this clip went through a colourization process, so you’ll see John, Paul, George and Ringo in the movie for the first time in colour. Enjoy!
Next week Voice Your Choice presents Blues great Charles Brown with two great Christmas songs for your votes. Cast your vote at the Voice YourChoice page for either Please Come HomeFor Christmas or Merry Christmas Baby. 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 November 30th
Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1969
Looking forward to your company again next week on the Island. Have fun getting your Christmas shopping done or at least started!
Bye for now.
