week on Treasure Island Oldies
2014 to September 6th
This week’s show is like having three
specials in one! It’s the annual Labour Day Back
To School End Of Summer Special this week on
Treasure Island Oldies. And I’d like to thank you
for your email and Listener Line Requests
once again this week. It was cool to play a real
Lost Treasure from Steve Lawrence,
Can’t Wait For Summer; and this week’s Rock
and Roll Relic, School Bus by Kris
Jensen, was a great fit with the special. Thanks
Last week on the show I featured songs from the
brand new CD, Long Lost Hits And Rarities by
the Montreal group, The Sceptres. I was
pleased to be able to give away five copies of the
album which will be autographed by all surviving
members of the group. Here are the winners: Barb
Frazier in Norwalk, California; Matt
Meaney in Langley, British Columbia;
Chris Witmer in Iowa City, Iowa; Rick
Canode in Madison, Wisconsin; and Paul
Carter Jr. in Ellicott City, Maryland.
Congratulations! It’s fantastic at the diverse
cities where listeners live and yet they all come to
wishes go out this week to Cindy Williams in
Vancouver, British Columbia and Connie
“Kitten” Howe in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
And if your own birthday is coming up, be sure to
let me know. Send the details to
and I’ll wish you Happy Birthday on the air and also
play The Beatles and Birthday for you.
