week on Treasure Island Oldies
July 20th 2014 to July 26th,
Well the gremlins were at it again
unfortunately. The 24/7 Continuous stream was down
addition, the Live stream went down shortly into the
3rd hour of the live show. The good news is that the
first two hours were not lost and the show continued
to be recorded and archived. So when the Archives
are back up and running, the entire Technicolor
Special will be available for your enjoyment. I
do apologize for these technical issues. Hopefully,
these problems will be resolved in time for next
week’s live show.
Nonetheless, it was
a lot of fun playing all those colourful songs on
the Technicolor Special and my thanks to you for
your Requests, whether via email or the
Listener Line. Our next special is one that has
become one of the most popular specials and shows of
the entire year. Join me for the Live show
Sunday, August 3rd for the Annual
Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special. Back
in the day, one could hear a lot of instrumental
songs on the radio. Today there is very little
except for the annual tribute to the great
instrumentals of all time. And don’t worry about not
knowing the words to the songs…there aren’t any! If
you have a favourite instrumental you’d like to hear
be sure to let me know. Click Requests on any
page of the website or Call the Treasure
Island Oldies Listener Line at
Remember if your birthday is approaching, be sure to
let me know and I’ll play Birthday by The
Beatles for you and wish you Happy Birthday
on the show. Send the details to me at

Blog I am playing the song that started off the
Technicolor Special this week. It’s Creedence

of the Week. Enjoy!
Next week Voice Your Choice presents Helen
Reddy, one of the top female recording artists
of the 1970s. Cast your vote at the Voice Your
Choice page for either Angie Baby or Delta
Dawn. I’ll play the winner in the 3rd
hour of next week’s show.
