This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of May 8th, 2016

May 8th to May 14th, 2016

Happy Mother's Day to our dear mothers around the world. Whether present or in our hearts, we love and acknowledge mothers around the world every year. It's actually wonderful just how many songs relate to mother, some in jest and others with love and admiration. It's my pleasure to bring your our Mother's Day Special once again this year. Be sure to check out for yourself how many "Mother" songs I played. Go to the Listen page and scroll down to the playlist.

If you have been trying to call our Listener Line but not getting through, I have to let you know that without any prior notice or warning to its clients, the phone line provider ceased offering the phone line service as of May 1st. I was frustrated and annoyed that I was not able to have an immediate replacement number ready and working. Please be patient, I will get a new phone number for you to call with your requests and greetings as soon as possible. In the meantime, please be sure to email your requests to me at

I'd like to extend my best wishes and congratulations to Caroline Congdon in Fargo, North Dakota and to Bruce Toews in Winnipeg, Manitoba who are getting married next weekend. Bruce has been a regular in the Chat Room for many years and Caroline more recently. Some of their time getting to know each other has been during the live weekly Treasure Island Oldies shows. And now they're getting married. Congratulations you two! 

It was fun to see the famous Chiquita Banana poster at My Generation Posters and More this week. It brought back so many memories of those TV cartoon ads for the bananas. Their entire website can revive your memories too. Check out this week's cool poster of The Temptations. It's 50% off, any size. As the show sponsor, I also ask you for your support by visiting their website and if something catches your eye and your memories, make a purchase. Everyone will be happy. Please check out their website for more information. And be sure to sign up for their weekly newsletter. You'll be among the first to know about the upcoming weekly specials. And be sure to also let them know you heard their commercial on Treasure Island Oldies. 

If your birthday is coming up soon, 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 Number One song on this week's Top 5 Countdown from 1966. It's the Mamas and Papas with Monday, Monday. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy! 

Voice Your Choice presents one of the top groups of the early Rock & Roll era, Bill Haley and His Comets. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Burn That Candle or Skinny Minnie. I’ll play the winner on next week’s show.
