Your Island Update - Week of February 16th, 2015

February 15th, 2015 to February 21st, 2014

You know what they say about contests? You can’t win if you don’t enter. The Treasure Island Oldies 18th Anniversary Contest is in full swing and next week on the show I will announce the February winner of the poster of their choice from TNJ Poster Creations. If you have not yet entered, do so today. Go to the website and Click the Celebrate 18 logo and follow the simple instructions. Who knows, I may say your name on the Live show this Sunday, February 22nd. Good luck and enter the contest today!

Mark your calendar for The Name Game Special, Live Sunday, March 15th. Every song will have someone’s name in the song title. So whether it’s Sheila, Tommy, John, Linda, Carrie-Ann, or Bill, you’ll hear some great name songs on the show.

Just heard the sad news about the passing of Lesley Gore. I will pay tribute to her music on next week’s show throughout the four hours. She was still young at 68 and apparently died after a battle with cancer. Our loss is Rock & Roll Heaven’s gain.

If your birthday is coming up soon, please let me know. I’d be pleased to wish you Happy Birthday on the show and play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Scottish singer Lulu in a clip from the British TV series Ready Steady Go. It’s her first hit single, Shout, and it’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice is featuring Motown’s Temptations with two of their many hits. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either All I Need or You’re My Everything. I’ll play the winning song in the second half of the 3rd hour of next week’s show.

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

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1967

Well take good care and stay warm and dry; the winter weather has been playing havoc for some folks.

See you next week on the show and once again, don’t forget to enter the 18th Anniversary Contest. I’ll announce the winner for February on next week’s show.

Bye for now.
