week on Treasure Island Oldies
December 1st, 2013 to December 7th,
Hard to believe we’re in the month of
December already! And we eased into the holiday
season by playing several Christmas songs throughout
the show with more to come over the next two weeks
and culminating with the 17th Annual
Christmas Special Live Sunday, December 22nd.
I sure hope you can listen to what has become the
most popular show of the entire year. In case you
aren’t able to listen to the Live show, it will be
available at the Archive page throughout the
Christmas period. My thanks to our Webmaster,
Eddy Fisher, for getting the website all
decorated for the Christmas Holidays. The
decorations look great!
There were some issues with accessing the Archives
over the past couple of days; however, everything
seems to be back up and running once again. A big
thanks to the technical staff at our network,
NeuLion, for their hard work at resolving the
wishes go out to long time listener Lennart
Perrson in Gothenberg, Sweden and to my
long time friend I used to work with at A&M
Records, Alan Oken in Los Angeles,
California. If you have a birthday fast
approaching, be sure to let me know so that I can
wish you Happy Birthday on the show and also
play Birthday by The Beatles for you.

It was sad news to hear of the
passing of the leads singer and drummer with The
Standells, Dick Dodd. Interestingly, he
was also one of the original Mousketeers on
the Mickey Mouse Club on TV in the 1950s. And
in tribute to Dick Dodd, the Treasure Island
Oldies Blog is playing the signature hit for
The Standells, Dirty Water. It’s our
Song of the Week. Dick Dodd, R.I.P.
We only have two more Voice Your Choice
segments on the show for 2013 and we’re continuing
with the music of the Holidays with Bert
Kaempfert. Cast your vote at the Voice Your
Choice page for either Holiday For Bells or
Jingo Jango. I’ll play the winner in the 3rd
hour of next week’s show.
