This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week of August 9th, 2015

August 9th, 2015 to August 15th, 2015
Thanks again for all the comments I've received over the week regarding the Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders last week. For some reason, this particular show resonates with many listeners and it's been the same reaction since this themed show first became a special many years ago now. Just so you know, as long as the show continues there will always be an instrumental special. :-) 

I'd like to say hello to Dick in Cologne, Germany, who dropped by the Chat Room for the first time. He said that Treasure Island Oldies is his favourite station. Thanks very much, Dick. It was also very nice hearing from first time callers including Pamela Francis and David Arnold, both in Kansas City, Missouri. And wonderful to hear from Shirley Ham in Cincinnati, Ohio, plus Toni Howerton in Middletown, Ohio. Keep those call and emails coming!

Be sure to enter the Treasure Island Oldies 18th Anniversary Contest today and your name could be drawn and announced on the show August 30th. Click the 18th Anniversary Contest logo for more information.

A quick reminder for your calendar. Next Sunday, August 16th it's the next special, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. You'll hear songs like Next Plane To London, Last Train To Clarksville and Mustang Sally! 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
