This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of May 24th, 2015

May 24th, 2015 to May 31st 2015
It was great to spend time together again this week on Treasure Island Oldies. And while the Live show has already taken place this week, you can always hear the archive of the show by going to the Listen page. There's two ways to listen to the Archives. First is the 24/7 Stream in Windows Media with the three most recent shows. Alternatively, you can listen to an individual show with Real Media. Just click on your preference. And by the way, I'd suggest you download a free open-source multi-media player, VLC at no cost. That way, you can listen to Windows Media or Real Media streams by using only one player.

The 18th Anniversary Contest continues with the next winner to be announced on the show next Sunday, May 31st. Enter the contest now. If you don't enter, you can't win. Click the Contest ad on the left side.

It was great to play a brand new song for you by Peter Rivera, the original lead singer and drummer with Rare Earth. His new album is titled It Is What It Is, and what a treat to hear his strong vocals again. He hasn't lost his touch at all, as you heard on the song Do You Wanna Rock. He sure did! I'm always pleased to help you discover something new by a classic heritage artist!

Hello to Maureen in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who was a first time caller to the Listener Line. It was my pleasure to play her two requests, Celebration by Kool and the Gang and also Ooby Dooby by Roy Orbison.  If you'd like to hear a song, be sure to let me know. Either click the Email Your Request button on the left side of any page of the new website or call the Listener Line at 206-339-0709 to record your request message. I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to long time listener, Bruce Toews in Winnipeg, Manitoba. If your birthday is coming up soon, please let me know so that the listeners and I can celebrate your special day. Send the details to 

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing one of the early Girl Groups. It's The Exciters with Tell Him. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents two of the greatest folk/pop singers of the 1960s, Simon and Garfunkel. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Homeward Bound or Sound Of Silence. I'll play the winner during next week's show.

Bye for now.
