Week of October 2 - 8, 2016
Welcome back to our first Island Update since our "hiatus" in September. We are pleased to be with our new network, Yare Media. We are working at getting the Archives back for you, as well as having a stream that can be accessed by some of our Broadcast Partners Network radio stations that simulcast the show live. All good things take time and we hope to get things 100% back to normal in due time. Thanks for your patience.
I must say it has been very gratifying to receive so many comments of of encouragement and support while we were off the air. Thanks again for your emails and Facebook comments. It's very evident to me just how much you enjoy Treasure Island Oldies and just how much you missed hearing the show. Well as I said, we're back!
Be sure to join me next week as we celebrate the Fall Harvest with the Canadian Thanksgiving Special, Sunday, October 9th, starting at 6 pm Pacific time. There will be a fair amount of songs appropriate to the occasion played throughout the four hours.
Now that we're back on the air, so too are our regular features. And one feature I very much enjoy is wishing you Happy Birthday and playing Birthday by The Beatles for you. In order to have me send birthday greetings out to you, I need to know when you will be celebrating your birthday. I don't need to know your age or any other private information, just the date of your birthday. For example, October 3rd. That's all I need. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get well wishes go out to good friend and long time listener, Matt Meaney, in Langley, British Columbia. Take it easy, Matt!
The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the Number One Song from the Treasure Island Oldies Top Five Countdown from 1965. It's The McCoys with Hang On Sloopy. Enjoy!
Creedence Clearwater Revival are in the Voice Your Choice spotlight. Cast you vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Commotion or Hey Tonight. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
Here's this week's Rock and Roll News Podcast.
That's all for this week. Be sure to join me next week for the Canadian Thanksgiving Special.
In the meantime, have a great week.
Bye for now.Michael
