week on Treasure Island Oldies
March 1st, 2015 to March 7th
Hard to believe
it’s March already and spring must be just around
the corner or fall for our friends in the southern
hemisphere. What I like about this time of year is
that the days get longer with light. Nothing worse
than getting up and going to work in the dark and
coming home in the dark again. Remind me to always
pay my electricity bill. LOL And with the coming of
spring is more specials. As part of the 18th
Anniversary of the show, I’m pleased to present
18 Specials and our next one is The Name
Game Special, Live Sunday, March 15th
and then on the Archives. Every song will have a
person’s name in the song title, and if there’s a
specific one you’d like me to play for you, be sure
to let me know. Click Requests on any page of
the website or Call the Listener Line
at any time of the day or night at
and request your request message. I’ll play it back
along with your song.
