This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of December 4th, 2016

Week of December 4th - December 10th, 2016

We're in December and what a great way to start the month than with a lot of great Holiday and Christmas tunes on the show. And with the Christmas Village all decorated at the website, it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Last night in the Chat Room we were talking about how some places got 5 inches of snow, or as Rick in Madison, Wisconsin calls it, the "white menace" LOL. We were also saying how it rarely ever snows in Vancouver, where the show is based. Think we spoke too soon, as when I got up Monday morning, it was snowing and it kept up on and off all day. Think we got maybe 2 or 3 inches, but for Vancouver that was a major storm LOL So all in all, the Christmas music was perfect to play on this week's show.

Next week on the show it will be all Christmas music throughout the four hours, leading up to the 20th Annual Christmas Special, Live Sunday, December 18th. I look forward to your company over the next two weeks. And please remember that while we don't yet have Archived shows available, the Christmas Special will be available throughout the holidays to listen on demand.

Is your birthday coming up soon? I'd really like to help you celebrate by wishing you Happy Birthday on the show and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to

The final Voice Your Choice for 2016 next week spotlights the King of Rock and Roll with two of his great Christmas songs for your votes. Go to the Voice Your Choice page and cast your vote for either Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane) or White Christmas. I'll play the winner next Sunday.

Here's the Rock and Roll News Podcast for this week.

That's about it for now.

See you next Sunday for the next live show with all Christmas songs.

Have a good week.

Bye for now.
