This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of December 14th, 2014

December 14th, 2014 to December 20th 2013

It sure was another fun time again this week on the Island and the Chat Room was humming. It was so good to have Sunny from Illinois drop by for a visit. It had been a long time since she was able to come for a visit due to prolonged computer problems. Great to see you Sunny! And it was also nice to have so many other in the chat room as well. Next week I invite you to come by for some Christmas cheer as it will be the 18th Annual Treasure Island Oldies Christmas Special. This has become my favourite show over the years to bring to you and from the response I receive, it is also the most popular show of the year. The Christmas Special will begin next Sunday, December 21st at 6 pm Pacific, 1 am Universal and I look forward to keeping you company as you get things done in time for Christmas.

Happy Birthday to Alain, husband of listener Guylaine Côté in Quebec City, and to my friend and colleague Isaac Shane in San Diego, California. If your birthday is approaching, be sure to let me know. Send the details to and I’ll wish you happy birthday on the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles.

2015 marks the 18th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies and we are celebrating with a contest where there will be a different winner every month throughout the year. For full details and to enter the contest, click the 18 Celebrate logo on any page of the website. The monthly prize will be the poster of your choice from TNJ Poster Creations, so be sure to click on the Celebrate 18 logo for complete details. The first winner will be announced on the New Year Dance Party on Sunday, January 4, 2015. Enter now and good luck!

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing what has become a Christmas novelty classic. It’s Santa’s Stuck Up In The Chimney by Paul Evans. Since he released the song and video 7 years ago, it has generated over 1.6 Million views on You Tube. Let’s add to the total for our Song of the Week.

Voice Your Choice will be taking a break next week as it’s the Christmas Special but the feature returns on the first show of 2015 with The Beatles. Cast you vote for either I Want To Hold Your Hand or I Saw Her Standing There. The winning song on the New Year Dance Party, Sunday, January 4th, 2015.
