Week of May 28th, 2017 to June 3rd, 2017
Welcome to this week's Island Update. I was pleased to be able to pay tribute to the late Gregg Allman on this week's show. I only heard about the passing of this Southern Rock pioneer on Sunday morning of this week's Live show. And that is the beauty of doing a Live show. There is the ability to adjust the playlist at the last minute, as opposed to a recorded show and having to wait do a tribute a week after the fact. Apart from Gregg's solo version of Midnight Rider, it was great to play some wonderful Allman Brothers Band records too, some I had never played on the show. For a look at the complete playlist for this week's show, please click Listen on the menu bar and then scroll down the page. The playlist is available every week. 

Yet again this week, the Chat Room was buzzing with conversation among the Nuts in the Hut and it was great to welcome Robert from Crossville, Tennessee to the Chat Room. Robert has been listening to the show over the past 20 years but made his first visit to the Chat Room this week. Everyone made him feel comfortable and completely at ease. And did he ever have a good time and he fit like a glove! Next week why not drop by the Chat Room during the live show from 6 to 10 pm Pacific. There are two ways to log on: via Web Chat and also using mIRC. Just follow the easy instructions no matter which method you choose. We all look forward to welcoming you and to you becoming an official Nut in the Hut. 

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Daryl Dartnell (I'm not sure what city he lives in), and to long time listener Bruce Toews in Winnipeg, Manitoba. If you have a birthday coming up soon, I'd like to help celebrate your special day by wishing you Happy Birthday on the air and also play Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the details to 

The Top Five Countdown on this week's show is from 1971. And the Number One song is by the Rolling Stones. Brown Sugar is playing at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. Enjoy!

Ireland's The Bachelors are in the spotlight next week for Voice Your Choice on Treasure Island Oldies. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Diane or Marie. I'll play the winning song on next week's show.

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

Have a great week and thanks again for your company on the show.

See you next week here on the Island.

Bye for now.
