January 18th, 2015 to January 24th, 2015
It’s hard to believe we are already near the end of January. Is it just me or has time simply sped up??!! I suppose if the weekly four hour show goes by quickly, then the rest of the day, week, etc. is bound to follow suit. J It’s a very exciting year for me and the show, as we celebrate the 18th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies throughout 2015. And as you know, we’ve also got a fun contest with a chance for you to win the poster of your choice from TNJ Poster Creations. I will announce the next winner on the show February 22nd. Be sure to enter; come to the Celebrate 18 page for full contest details. Good luck!
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Alice Bledsoe in Peoria, Illinois. If your birthday is approaching, let me know by sending the details to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll wish you a very Happy Birthday on the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you.
Be sure to mark your calendar for our annual salute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper on the Day The Music Died Special, February 1st during the entire 4th hour. Then the following week, Cupid will be present with his bow as we celebrate with the Annual Valentine’s Special, February 8th. Just two more of our 18 Specials throughout the year for you.
The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Bobby Darin and a song requested by Cora Quinn for her friend Alice Bledsoe in Peoria, Illinois, who is celebrating her birthday this week. Bobby Darin appears in a clip from a TV show hosted by Dick Clark, and performing Beyond The Sea. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!
Voice Your Choice is spotlighting Mark Lindsay, the former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders, with two of his solo career hits. Cast your vote at theVoice Your Choice page for either SilverBird or Arizona. I’ll play the winner during next week’s show in the 3rd hour.
Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of January 18th
Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1960
Have a great week and I look forward to your company next Sunday for the next live show.
Bye for now.
