This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of March 8th, 2015

March 8th, 2015 to March 14th, 2015

I have no idea what occurred, but part way through the 3rd hour of the live show, the stream from the network failed and could not re-connect. I apologize for this inconvenience, but when situations like this arise, I have no control. Fortunately, it does not happen often at all.  The good news is the entire show was still archived and available now at the Listen page. So if you missed the last part of the show or were unable to listen at all to the live show, the Archive is up and running.

It was fun to play some “time” songs as a way of reminding listeners, where applicable, that the clocks needed to be forwarded by one hour. Surprisingly there are quite a number of “time” songs, including Time Won’t Let Me, Time For Livin’, Good Time Baby, Time Of The Season, Give Me Just A Little More Time, Any Time At All, Time Has Come Today, and so many more. Check out this week’s Playlist to find out all the timely tunes played on this week’s show.

Is your birthday coming up soon? Be sure to let me know so that I can play Birthday by The Beatles and also wish you Happy Birthday on the show. Send the details to

Next week on the show it’s The Name Game Special; and there’ll be a ton of tunes with a person’s name in the song title. It’s all part of the 18 Specials for the 18th Anniversary of the show. And be sure to enter the 18th Anniversary Contest now. Full details by clicking the Celebrate 18 logo on the website. I will make the draw and announce the next winner on March 29.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the Rolling Stones and Time Is On My Side. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice shines the spotlight on Janis Ian. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Society’s Child or At Seventeen. I’ll play the winning song on next week’s show.
