This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of January 4th, 2015 

January 4th, 2015 to January 10th, 2015

I can’t think of a better way to begin the new year than with a party and what a party we had! The New Year Dance Party kicked off a year of celebration of the 18th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies. And we’ll celebrate with 18 specials throughout 2015 plus we’ll have a year-long contest with a winner every month. We’ve teamed up with our good friends at TNJ Poster Creations to give you the chance to win the post of your choice from a selection of over 400. For complete details on how to enter the contest, just click the Celebrate 18 logo . And I’m pleased to announce the first winner: Peter Campanella from Valley Stream, New York. Peter chose the Tribute to Bobby Fuller Four poster as his prize. And if you enter and don’t win in the current month, your name will still be among the entries eligible to win. Let’s all celebrate this milestone together. Good luck!

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Jill Brown Sykes in Cambridge, Ontario and Shirley Ham in Cincinnati, Ohio. If your birthday is coming up soon, be sure to get the details to me so that I can wish you Happy Birthday and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the info to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the national anthem of dance songs, as part of our New Year Dance Party. It’s Chubby Checker performing The Twist on American Bandstand. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents Darlene Love, one of the greatest singers of the Rock and Roll era and beyond. Cast your vote atthe Voice Your Choice page for either TodayI Met The Boy I’m Gonna Marry or WaitTil’ My Bobby Gets Home. I’ll play the winner on next week’s show during the 3rd hour.

Well that’s about all for this week; but be sure to enter the Celebrate 18 contest, part of the year-long Treasure Island Oldies 18th Anniversary celebrations.

Have a good week.

Bye for now.
