Week of February 12th, 2017 to February 18th, 2017
Welcome to this week's Island Update. I hope you enjoyed our annual Valentine's Day Special and thanks for your requests; they always add an extra special element to the show. The Chat Room was busy as well and it was good to see the regulars along with listeners who drop by to say hello from time to time. Speaking of regulars, a big shout out to Linda Guy in La Habra, California, who is now back home recuperating from knee replacement surgery. Take it slow and easy, Linda, and follow the instructions from your doctor. Our webmaster, Eddy Fisher, has had both knees replaced and advises to remember to do all the rehab exercises to help ensure a complete recovery. All the best to you, Linda!
Mark your calendar for our next special. It's the annual One Hit Wonders Special, coming up Sunday, March 12th. You'll be surprised with just how many artists and groups had hits on the charts, but only once. And we will highlight some of those great and unforgettable records during the entire four hours. You won't want to miss it this special, which will get underway at 6 pm Pacific.
Happy Birthday wishes go out to Guylaine Côté in Quebec City, Quebec. She's a long time listener of the show and even used to listen when I was a DJ at CFOM in Quebec City, when she was around 9 years old! Very cool. Now, is your birthday coming up soon? If so, please let me know the date so that I can help you celebrate your special day on the air. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll wish you Happy Birthday on the air and play Birthday by The Beatles for you.
The Top Five Countdown this week is from 1962 and the Number One song is Duke Of Earl by Gene Chandler. It's playing at the Treasure Island Oldies Blog. Enjoy!
Next week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents some great party music from Sam The Sham and The Pharoahs. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Wolly Bully or Lil' Red Riding Hood. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
Here's this week's Rock and Roll News Podcast.
Have a great week and see you next Sunday for the next Live show. In the meantime, Happy Valentine's Day.
Take good care and all the best.
Bye for now.
