week on Treasure Island Oldies
2014 to September 13th
Thanks for spending another 4 hours
together again this week on Treasure Island Oldies.
I was pleased to get a lot of response to this
week’s Top 5 Countdown; all five were from
1957. In today’s radio world it is not easy to hear
songs from the ‘50s, and some “oldies” stations
consider oldies to be the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. So I
understand why you enjoyed hearing Elvis,
Debbie Reynolds, Buddy Holly & The Crickets,
and Jerry Lee Lewis. As you know, we delve
into the ‘50s every week during the last hour of the
show with the Rock And Roll Reunion.
On a programming note, I will be taking a week
vacation next week and am looking forward to
visiting my mom and sister back east. Next week’s
show will be a repeat broadcast of the show from
September 15th, 2013. I look forward to
returning with a new Live show, Sunday, September 21st.
As I was not
informed of any birthdays this week, I’ll just
remind you let me know when your birthday is coming
up. Send the details to
I look forward to wishing you Happy Birthday
on the show and to playing The Beatles and
Birthday just for you.
It was so good to hear Drip Drop
by Dion, our Weather song this week.
So I thought it was be fun to see a vintage music
clip of the great Dion with Drip Drop. It’s our
Song of the Week at the Treasure Island
Voice Your Choice
presents Tommy James and The Shondells. Cast
your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either
