“Quite possibly the
Internet's finest oldies netcast show..." Robert Fontenot -
Week on Treasure Island Oldies
May 19th, 2013 to May 25th, 2013
It's interesting how fast seven days goes by until we're
back together again enjoying our favourite music here on the
if you think that seven days go by quickly, it's uncanny how
fast the show's four hours go by so quickly. One thing for
sure, we're never bored at Treasure Island Oldies. And it's
always so cool to play not only your favourites, but also
lots of Lost Treasures,
songs you haven't heard in years but vividly remember
nonetheless. It was great to start off the show with Shake And Fingerpop
by Jr. Walker & The All
Stars. It was also fun to hear Tom Northcott's 1941; haven't
played it on the show since 2007! In case you missed the
live show, be sure to enjoy the Archive at the Listen page.
You'll hear a ton of great music.
wishes go out this week to Cora Quinn in Peoria,
Illinois. A good friend of hers passed on her
birthday information, so she had no idea I was going to
celebrate her birthday on the show until she was actually
listening to the live show. Good fun. And if you are about
to celebrate your birthday, be sure to let me know so I can
wish you Happy Birthday
on the show and I'll play Birthday by The Beatles for
you! Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to mark your calendar for some upcoming specials: on

The Treasure Island Oldies
Blog is playing The Kickerbockers
with their smash Beatles-sounding Lies. It's our Song Of The Week.
Voice Your Choice
presents one of the longest lasting groups in history. The Dells kept
their exact original line-up from the early 1060's and into
the '80s with a fantastic blend of voices. And this week we
have two of their great recordings for you. Cast your vote
at the Voice Your Choice

or Stay In My Corner.
I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
