This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of April 5th, 2015

April 5th, 2014 to April 11th, 2015

I’d like to wish the listeners around the world a very Happy Easter and Happy Passover. Hope you had a good celebration with your family and friends. We continue to celebrate the 18th Anniversary of Treasure Island Oldies with 18 specials and this week it’s the One Hit Wonders Special. It’s amazing how many huge hit records were made by artists or groups that appeared on the top 100 charts one time only. It was good to play your requests as well, including Donnie by The Bermudas for Toni Howereton in Middletown, Ohio. Judy Covington in Canton, Ohio checked in on the Listener Line at 206-339-0709 to request Confidential by Sonny Knight. And speaking of celebrating, two regulars in the Chat Room, Jill and Tim, met 10 years ago in the chat room. Jill was in Ohio while Tim lived in Ontario and they continued to get to know each other while they visited with the other Nuts in the Hut. Well this week is their 2nd Wedding Anniversary and they had a great visit again this week in the Chat Room. I surprised them by playing “their songs”: I Got You Babe by Sonny & Cher and I’ll Be Yours My Love by The Dave Clark Five. Happy Anniversary Jill and Tim! Good things happen to the folks who visit the Chat Room. Check it out for yourself during the Live show Sunday nights. Click Chat and then follow the easy instructions. Everyone looks forward to your company!

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

The next winner of the 18th Anniversary Contest will be announced on the show April 26th. Be sure to enter the contest; you could win the poster of your choice from our good friends at TNJ Poster Creations. Click the Celebrate 18 logo to have your name randomly selected as another lucky winner.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the song that started off the One Hit Wonders Special. It’s The Equals with Baby Come Back. It’s our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents the amazing Chicago group, The Dells. Cast your vote for either There Is or Stay In My Corner. Good luck with making up your mind! I’ll play the winner on next week’s show.

Here’s the Rock and Roll News for the week of April 5th

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1964.

 By the way, history was made this week when the Top 5 from 1964 had The Beatles holding down all 5 spots. If you missed hearing it during the show, you can listen to the Top 5 Countdown. Click the link.

Well that’s about it for now. Have a great week.

Bye for now.
