This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of November 22nd, 2015

November 22nd, 2015 to November 28th, 2015
It was a pleasure hearing from long time listener California Barb via the Listener Line (206-339-0709). She asked to hear a couple of songs in celebration of the US Thanksgiving happening this week. Her "full meal deal" included Let's Turkey Trot by Little Eva, and for dessert Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie by Jay and the Techniques. a delicious couple of tunes! Thanks, Barb. While I'm at it, I'd like to wish my American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. Have a great time celebrating with your family and friends.

Please mark you calendar for Sunday, December 20th. That's the date for the Live Annual Christmas special. This will be the 19th year I have brought you my favourite show of the year. And please note that the Archive of the show will also be available throughout the Holiday Season on the Listen page. And to get you in the mood, I'm going to begin playing some Christmas songs beginning on next week's show.

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.

This is almost a last reminder to enter the Treasure Island Oldies 18th Anniversary Contest. I'll announce the November winner on next week's show and the final winner will be announced on December 13. So you've got just a bit of time to enter to be eligible to win the poster of your choice from our good friends at TNJ Poster Creations.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing Proud Mary, a real classic from Creedence Clearwater Revival. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

We mellow out on Voice Your Choice, as we present James Taylor. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Fire And Rain or You've Got A Friend. I'll play the winning song on next week's show.
