week on Treasure Island Oldies
2014 to August 23rd
It was great to have Tom Locke
join me in the studio for the first hour of this
week’s show to celebrate 15 years of the
Moment In Time feature on the show. Tom has
researched and written every single Moment In Time
since its inception in 1999. I really enjoyed
reminiscing with Tom, playing some great songs and
re-visiting some really interesting stories. As Tom
mentioned, the segment was inspired by Paul
Harvey, who would be proud that his influence
spread to this show and the wonderful feature. Thank
again, Tom. Looking forward to having you back in
the studio as a guest again soon.
wishes go out to my good friend and listener, Fay
Greenwood, in Langley, British Columbia.
Fay and her husband, Matt Meaney wrote and
produced the Hits From Across The Pond
segment that has once again become a very enjoyable
feature on the show with the encore presentations in
the 4th hour every week. If you have a
birthday coming up soon, be sure to let me know. I’d
love to wish you Happy Birthday on the show and also
play The Beatles and Birthday for you.

While we are still in the lazy, hazy,
crazy days of summer, the time is passing by
quickly. And that brings us to the next special on
the show. Join me for the Live show, Sunday,

We’ll feature some work themed songs, the last of
