week on Treasure Island Oldies
January 18th, 2015 to January 24th
It’s hard to believe we are already
near the end of January. Is it just me or has time
simply sped up??!! I suppose if the weekly four hour
show goes by quickly, then the rest of the day,
week, etc. is bound to follow suit. J It’s a very
exciting year for me and the show, as we celebrate
the 18th Anniversary of Treasure
Island Oldies throughout 2015. And as you know,
we’ve also got a fun contest with a chance for you
to win the poster of your choice from TNJ Poster
Creations. I will announce the next winner
on the show February 22nd. Be sure
to enter; come to the Celebrate 18 page for
full contest details. Good luck!
wishes go out this week to Alice Bledsoe in
Peoria, Illinois. If your birthday is
approaching, let me know by sending the details to

and also play Birthday by The Beatles
Be sure to mark your calendar for our
annual salute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and
The Big Bopper on the Day The Music Died

entire 4th hour. Then the following week,
Cupid will be present with his bow as we celebrate
with the Annual Valentine’s Special, February 8th.
