This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of July 31st, 2016

July 31st to August 4th, 2016

Thank you very much for the requests and comments about this week's Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders special. I heard from listeners in Canada, the United States and as far away as Australia. I sure appreciate hearing from you and just how much you enjoy hearing all these great instrumental hits. If you missed the live show or would like to listen again, just go to the Listen page and scroll down to the Archives section. Enjoy!

The next special will be the Labour Day Back To School Special, Live September 6th. You'll hear songs about working from artists like Wilbert Harrison, Sam Cooke, and many others, songs about school, from Gary U.S. Bonds for example, and I'll also play some last of the summer songs for the season. It's a seasonal wrap up and preparing for Fall all in one show.

My Generation Posters has a variety of brand new stock ready for you to check out, including some very cool Seasonal cards.  Visit their website soon to find more details, and 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.

Is your birthday coming up soon? If so, 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.

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the Number One song on this week's Top 5 Countdown from 1964. It's The Beatles with the title song of their debut motion picture, A Hard Day's Night. It's our Number One Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice is keeping the spirit of the Instrumental Gems special going by featuring Al Hirt. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Cotton Candy or Sugar Lips. I’ll play the winner on next week’s show.

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

Bye for now.
