A quick reminder for your calendar. Next week is another in the series of 18 Specials in celebration of our 18th Anniversary. Join me for the Music of Canada Special, when I’ll feature the artists, groups and songwriters who wrote, performed and produced some great records, some of which became hits across Canada and around the world. It all begins at 6 pm Pacific time. If there’s a specific song you’d like me to play, be sure to let me know. Click on the Requests button or call the Listener Line to record your request message at 206-339-0709. I’ve already heard from some listeners with their requests and I’m looking forward to playing them on the show next week.
Congratulations go out to Rich Clarke in Stillwell, Oklahoma, the June winner of the Treasure Island Oldies 18th Anniversary Contest. For his prize he chose the Treasure Island Oldies Tribute poster, exclusive to TNJ Post Creations, the sponsors of the 18th Anniversary Contest. You could be the July winner. Click the 18th Anniversary Contest logo to enter the contest. Good Luck!
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to my nephew and long time listener, Tony Gize in Airdrie, Alberta, known to the Chat Room regulars as Fonzie. If your birthday is coming up soon, please let me know so that the listeners and I can celebrate your special day. I’ll wish you a very happy birthday on the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
