This Week On Treasure Island Oldies - Week of October 9th to 15th, 2016

Week of October 9th - 15th, 2016

Thanks for listening to the Canadian Thanksgiving Special on this week's show. We seem to be settling back into the groove once again. One note for you to remember though. If you have been listening to your media player with the preset for the live stream, we no longer have a Windows Media stream. It is now Yare Media, and all you need to do to hear the live show is to go to the Listen page and click on the listen live link. No other player will work. Also with regard to hearing us live on one of our Broadcast Partners Network stations, we are fine tuning the technical aspects. We're back live on The Legend in Indianapolis, Indiana, and KWQQ Double Q 106.3 FM in Farmington, Iowa for the first time again since our "blackout" period last month. I know we still have some issues to resolve (including a mono only signal this week), and your patience while we work with our partner stations to resolve the issues is much appreciated.

On top of all that, our webmaster, Eddy Fisher, is also working hard on getting this year's Crypt ready for the Halloween Spooktacular. This marks the 20th year that I will be presenting this annual special. Join me for the Live special Sunday, October 30th beginning at 6 pm Pacific, 9 pm Eastern time. Hard to believe it is 20 consecutive years!

Is your birthday coming up soon? If so, let me know so that I can help celebrate your special day on the show. I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the air and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. All I need is the date of your birthday. Send the details to

I'm pleased to let you know that my good friend and long time listener, Matt Meaney, in Langley, British Columbia, is getting better. Take it easy, Matt, and here's feeling 100% soon!

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog is playing the Number One Song from the Treasure Island Oldies Top Five Countdown from 1960. It's Larry Verne with the novelty hit, Mr. Custer. Enjoy!

The great Mel Carter is in the Voice Your Choice spotlight. Cast you vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Band Of Gold or Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me. 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 again next week for another four hours of great Treasure Island Oldies.

Have a great week.

Bye for now.
