week on Treasure Island Oldies
April 20th, 2014 to April 26th,
Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy
Vaisakhi, Happy Spring! I hope you are enjoying the
beginning of Spring where you live. All the flowers
and trees are in bloom in Vancouver here on the West
Coast and it sure is beautiful. It’s a great time of
the year. And it was a great time again this week on
Treasure Island Oldies. It was fun to recognize
Record Store Day, as vinyl is now “in”. As I
mentioned on the show, I saw an ad on TV the other
day for Grand Marnier Liqueur that showed an upscale
party going on and the glue that held the event
together was the music playing from vinyl on the
turntable. Very cool. And I really enjoyed digging
out a vinyl record from the 1950s that was an
in-store demonstration record for a line of budget
records by Coronet Records. I played two ads
each hour and the feedback from the chat room was
‘where can I get an orthophonic album for $1.49!’
What good fun. I’ve had that record since I was a
kid and finally found a way to incorporate it into
the show; and what a great fit it was for Record
