This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of July 24th, 2016

July 24th to July 30th, 2016

Treasure Island Oldies has to be the fastest four hours in radio. I just can't believe how quickly the show goes by. The four hours seem to go by in about 20 minutes. :-) And that's how it seemed this week for sure. After 19 plus years, the show continues to give me great pleasure to prepare and present to you every week. And I very much look forward to next week's show for the annual Wordless Wonders Instrumental Gems special. Back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, there were many instrumental records that hit the charts and while you hardly ever hear them today, this special will bring back so many of your favourites. The cool thing about instrumental records is that you don't have to remember the words...there aren't any! This special has proven to be a big favourite of listeners over the years and I'm looking forward to it next week on the show.

I'd like to wish Mark from Georgetown, Texas, a very Happy Birthday. He's been visiting with friends and long time listeners, Rick and Connie in Madison, Wisconsin, and he'll be with them to celebrate his birthday. If your birthday is coming up soon, please be sure to let me know so that I can 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.
