Treasure Island Oldies Update for the week of May 10, 2015

May 10th, 2015 to May 16th, 2015
I'd like to begin this week's Update with my thanks and appreciation for all the feedback received on the brand new website. The comments have ranged from how the new site is nice and airy, breezy and light to how easy it is to navigate. And while there is no more palm tree, there is still a tropical feel to the colours and style of the logo, etc.  I have passed on your kind comments and compliments to Eddy Fisher, our Webmaster here on the Island and Eddy thanks you as well. As I mentioned last week, every effort has been made to have all links function without issue. However, if you do come across any links that don't work for you, please be sure to let us know. Send an email to me Thanks very much.

I'd also like to thank you for your requests I received for our Annual Mother's Day Special. It was great to hear from long time regulars as well as listeners getting in touch for the first time, including Bob in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. If you would like to hear a song on the show, whether it is for a specific show special or just a regular week, be sure to get in touch. The new site has easy contact points on the left side of every page for an email request as well as the phone number to call for the Listener Line.

I'd like to wish Toni Howerton in Middletown, Ohio a very Happy Birthday. 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 

Get better soon wishes go out to Fay Greenwood. While on vacation she fell and broke her arm and upon returning home, she went straight to the hospital and had surgery. Here's to a speedy recovery Fay, and all kinds of good wishes going out to you from the Treasure Island Oldies listeners, and the the regulars in the Chat Room, the Nuts on the Hut. And thanks to Matt for keeping me up to date with Fay's situation.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is also celebrating Mother's Day with The Shirelles and Mama Said. it's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!
