This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of June 28th, 2015

June 28th, 2015 to July 6th, 2015
Now that’s what I call a party! The sun, the surf, the sand and the Annual Treasure Island Oldies Summer Beach Party. It just feels like summer when you hear all those great summer songs. The Tiki Hut aka Chat Room had a great crowd, all in the mood for a party on the beach. Even the seagulls were having a good time flying overhead during the show! And the waves and ocean breeze were a perfect blend to cool things off a little. In case you missed hearing Martha and the Vandellas, Otis Redding, the Beach Boys, Elton John, Chad and Jeremy, and a ton more, you can enjoy the Archive of the Summer Beach Party at the Listen page. Remember, wear your sunscreen!

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.

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
