This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of July 19th, 2015

July 19th, 2015 to July 25th, 2015
Well wasn't that a colourful show! The Technicolor Special was a great success thanks to you, your comments and requests. It was great to welcome a first time visitor to the Chat Room, "sweetman" from Tennessee who  said he's been listening for a long time and decided to stop by the chat room for a visit. He was warmly welcomed by everyone. It was also very nice to get a first time request from Jim in Mexico, Missouri. Jim called the Listener Line at 206-339-0709 and requested a very fitting song, Technicolour Dreams by Status Quo.

On a sad note, I was quite surprised to learn of the passing of Diamond Dave Somerville from The Diamonds, at age 84. They had a huge string of big hits and Dave had an entire career performing as a result. I was pleased to be able to pay tribute to Dave and the Diamonds on the show. If you missed the Live show, check out the Archive at the Listen page.

Next week I will announce the July winner of the Treasure Island Oldies 18th Anniversary Contest. You still have time to enter. Click the 18th Anniversary Contest logo for more information.

A quick reminder for your calendar. Live Sunday, August 2nd it's the extremely popular Annual Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special. The entire show is filled with instrumental hits and according to many listeners, it is their favourite show of the year, apart from the Christmas Special. 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.

Do you have a birthday 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

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is keeping the Technicolor theme going with Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs. Li'l Red Riding Hood is our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice presents the ultra soulful Al Green. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Look What You've Done For Me or You Ought To Be With Me. I'll play the winner during next week's show.
