This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week of November 15th, 2015

November 15th, 2015 to November 21st, 2015
The big question is did you add up the numbers in the song titles in your head or did you use a calculator? LOL Either way the total at the end of the four hours of this week's Music By Numbers Special was high. Here's the totals for each hour: Hour 1 - 3837; Hour 2 - 437.6; Hour 3 - 8121 and Hour 4 had a whopping 7,347,379 for a Grand Total of 7,359,774.6! Now that's what I call a fun special. Sure hope you enjoyed it half as much as I did. And thanks for your requests, which I was able to fit into the special perfectly. Speaking of requests, if there's a song you'd like to hear on the show, be sure to get in touch with me. Send an email to or call the Listener Line at 206-339-0709 to record your request.

Our last special for this year will be the Annual Christmas Special, Live, Sunday, December 20th, and throughout the Holiday Season on the Archives. It's my absolute favourite show of the year and I know many of you feel the same way. Leading up to that special we will have lots of great Christmas songs, including some wonderful Holiday Lost Treasures. Speaking of holidays, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish my American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving this week. Enjoy your celebrations with your family and friends.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Chris Witmer in Iowa City, Iowa, and to Connie Canode in Madison, Wisconsin. Both are long time listeners! If your birthday is coming up, be sure to let me know by sending the details to I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you.
