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

Have a good week.

Bye for now.

Elvis Presley Voice Your Choice Christmas Edition

The King of Rock And Roll is front and centre this week on Treasure Island Oldies, as Elvis Presley is the artist in the spotlight on Voice Your Choice.

Elvis was born Elvis Aron Presley on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. During his lifetime, which was sadly cut short when he died in Memphis, Tennessee on August 16, 1977, he appeared on the charts an unbelievable 153 times! Not only that, but he had 41 Top Ten hits between 1956 and 2002, including 24 Gold plus 21 Platinum Records. Here's an understatement: What an astonishing, astounding and outstanding achievement!

For the final Voice Your Choice of 2016, we spotlight Elvis with two of his many Christmas recordings. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane) or White Christmas. I'll play the winner on next week's all-Christmas songs show.
