It sure was another fun time again
this week on the Island and the Chat Room was
humming. It was so good to have Sunny from
Illinois drop by for a visit. It had been a long
time since she was able to come for a visit due to
prolonged computer problems. Great to see you Sunny!
And it was also nice to have so many other in the
chat room as well. Next week I invite you to come by
for some Christmas cheer as it will be the 18th
Annual Treasure Island Oldies Christmas Special.
This has become my favourite show over the years to
bring to you and from the response I receive, it is
also the most popular show of the year. The
Christmas Special will begin next Sunday,
December 21st at 6 pm Pacific,
1 am Universal
and I look forward to keeping you company as you get
things done in time for Christmas.
Happy Birthday to
Alain, husband of listener Guylaine Côté
in Quebec City, and to my friend and
colleague Isaac Shane in San Diego,
California. If your birthday is approaching, be
sure to let me know. Send the details to
