This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of March 16th, 2015

March 15th, 2015 to March 21st, 2015

Isn’t it amazing how many people’s names were part of song titles. I had more than 4 hours of Name songs and had to narrow it down to a playlist that would fit within 4 hours. Check out every song I played on The Name Game Special by clicking the Listen page then Playlist. And I’d like to thank you for your requests via email, the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line and also my Facebook page. The 18 Specials, in celebration of the 18th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies continues next month with the One Hit Wonders Special, Live Sunday, April 5th and then on the Archive.

Speaking of the 18th Anniversary, the next draw for the Contest will be on March 29th. Be sure to enter today and for full details click on the Celebrate 18 logo. Who knows, I may draw your name and you’ll win the poster of your choice from our good friends at TNJ Poster Creations. Good luck!

Happy Birthday wishes go out to long time listener, good friend and the fellow who brings you Rick’s Rare Rock & Roll Relic every week, Rick Canode in Madison, Wisconsin, and also to Rick’s mom, Lucille, who turned 91 years young! In addition Happy Birthday to Joel Drucker in Randolph, New Jersey. If your birthday is coming up, be sure to let me know. Send the details to and I’ll send my best wishes to you on the air and also play Birthday by The Beatles.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Kenny Rogers and the First Edition and a song written by Mel Tillis. It’s Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town and it’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!
