This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of March 20th, 2016

March 20th to March 26th, 2016
Happy Spring! And for our friends in New Zealand and Australia, Happy Fall! Here on Canada's west coast, it sure is Spring with wonderful spring flowers and blossom trees blooming all around Vancouver. It is such a beautiful time of year, full of energy and renewal. And with the power back after last week's outage, it was full steam ahead for this week's show. Thanks for your requests and a big hello to first time caller and listener, Linda in Alameda, California. She wanted to hear a real Lost Treasure from David Gates. He had to have been so young, as the song she requested, Jo-Baby, was from 1958. Great to have you listening, Linda. If you would like to hear a song on the show, don't be shy. Either call the Treasure Island Oldies Listener Line at 206-339-0709 and record your message, or send an email request.

Please make a note on your calendar for our next special. The One Hit Wonders annual special returns, Live, Sunday, April 3rd, and later on the Archive at the Listen page. It is quite surprising just how many big hits there were but with only a one time appearance by the artist or group on the charts.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Joel Drucker in Randolph, New Jersey, and to my decades long friend, Tom Locke here in Vancouver, British Columbia. Tom's feature the Moment In Time happens weekly on the show. All the best from yours truly and everyone at Treasure Island Oldies. If your birthday is coming up, please be sure to let me know so that I can also celebrate your special day on the show. Send the details to I’ll wish you Happy Birthday during the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. 

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the song that started off this week's show. It's the Yardbirds with Heart Full Of Soul and it's our Song of the Week. Enjoy! 

Voice Your Choice spotlights The Fifth Dimension. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either (Last Night) I Didn't Get To Sleep At All or Stoned Soul Picnic. I’ll play the winner on next week’s show. 

Here’s this week’s Rock and Roll News Podcast

Listen to the Top 5 Countdown from 1961

Take care and have a good week. 

Bye for now.
