December 6th, 2015 to December 11th, 2015
With the Christmas rush already well underway, I'm going to have to keep this week's Island Update brief. I'd like to begin by wishing you a very Happy Hanukkah and I hope you enjoy this beautiful and traditional Festival of Light. I must also say that I was so pleased to get such immediate response from the Lost Christmas Treasure I played by the Fontaine Sisters, the backup singers for Perry Como from 1949 to 1952. California Barb was so surprised and pleased to hear me play Have A Howdy Doody Christmas by the Fontaine Sisters that she just had to call the Listener Line as soon as she heard it to say how thrilled she was I played it. That's a great example of why I love doing this show and bringing Treasure Island Oldies to you every week.

We're now only two weeks away from the Annual Christmas Special. Be sure to make a note in your calendar for Sunday, December 20th. That's the date for the Live show, but please note that the Archive of the show will also be available throughout the Holiday Season on the Listen page.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to long time listener and my friend Aron Gutman in Richmond, British Columbia 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.

You only have a few days remaining until next week's show and the announcement of the December and final winner of the Treasure Island Oldies 18th Anniversary Contest. 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. For details click on the Enter the 18th Anniversary Contest graphic link on any page of the website.

Treasure Island Oldies presents The Lovin' Spoonful on Voice Your Choice, the last one for this year. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Rain On The Roof or Nashville Cats. I'll play the winning song on next week's show.

Here's the Rock & Roll News Podcast for the week of December 7th.

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1966.

That's about all for now. Take care and have a good week.

Bye for now.
