This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of August 2nd, 2015

August 2nd, 2015 to August 8th, 2015
I'd say that this year's Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special was another great success. Thank you very much for your requests via email, the chat room, Facebook and the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line (206-339-0709). It was great to hear from Judy in Canton, Ohio with her request to play Lawrence Welk's 1965 hit Apples And Oranges, a rare one to fine and rarer to hear today on radio. She also requested a real classic, Wheels by The String-A-Longs. Long time listener, Fred Waterer in Ste. Catharines, Ontario asked to hear another rare instrumental gem by The Beatles, Cry For A Shadow. It was recorded in Hamburg in 1961. Jake Salazar in Vista, California wanted to hear Outa Space by Billy Preston. There were many other requests, too numerous to mention here; but you can hear all of them by going to the Listen page and check out this week's Archived show.

A quick reminder for your calendar. Sunday, August 16th it's a fun themed special, Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
