This Week on Treasure Island Oldies - Week of October 8th, 2017

Week of October 8th, 2017 to October 14th, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and listeners. It was a pleasure sharing the Annual Canadian Thanksgiving Special with you. I was also pleased to bring a Tom Petty musical tribute to you with some of his greatest songs played throughout the show. I sure appreciate the comments and feedback from folks in the Chat Room and from you via email. Thanks very much. 

Another thing I am thankful for is the wonderful widespread number of listeners. This week there were folks from across the United States including Texas, Indiana, Delaware, Kentucky, California, Ohio,Arizona,  Illinois, Florida, Idaho, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Iowa, and Missouri; from Canada there were listeners in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia; and around the world listeners from Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Croatia, Sweden, and even Uganda!  Absolutely fantastic, thank you!

This is a scary reminder for you that this year's Halloween Spooktacular will be live Sunday, October 29th. Be sure to join me in the crypt for the scariest, wildest, and funnest time you'll ever have alive! LOL This is the show when everyone in the Chat Room dresses up in costume with a different character name and it sure is fun trying to figure out who is really who. Whether you join the Chat Room for the live show, or just sit back and listen, this special has, over the past 20 years, become one of the most popular specials of the year. It all starts at 6 pm Pacific.

Do you have a birthday coming up soon? I'd like to know so that I can help celebrate your special day by wishing you Happy Birthday on the show and also by playing Birthday by The Beatles for you. Send the info 

This week's Top Five Countdown is from 1961. And the Number One song is Hit The Road Jack by Ray Charles. It's playing at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. Enjoy!

Next week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice spotlights Jim Reeves. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Am I Losing You or Distant Drums. I'll play the winning song on next week's show.

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

Thanks again for listening to the show. See you next week right here on The Island.

Bye for now.
