This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of August 6th, 2017

Week of August 6th, 2017 to August 12th, 2017
It's no wonder that the Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Specials gets so much response every year. First off the same show is not repeated year after year, and second, it is so rare to hear an entire 4 hours of great Instrumental Hits of the '50s, '60s and '70s. I know of no other show anywhere that features instrumental hits as a special. Thanks so much for your feedback and requests. It was great to play them for you. By the way, in case you missed out on a song title or artist, be sure to go to the Listen page and scroll down. That's where you can find the playlist for the show every week. And if you'd like to hear the show again this week, just go to the Broadcast Partners Network page to find a day and time then this week's show will be re-broadcast on one of our affiliate stations.

I am very pleased to welcome another new radio station to the ever-growing list of Broadcast Partners Network affiliate radio stations.
