Peach And Herb - Voice Your Choice

Peaches and Herb, an R&B duo from Washington, DC, were Francine "Peaches" Barker (she was born Francine Hurd in 1947) and Herb Fame (born Herbert Feemster October 1, 1942).

There were three "Peaches" between 1967 and 1980. The original Peaches, Francine Barker, was temporarily replaced by Marlene Mack from 1968-69. In 1978 Herb teamed up with a new Peaches, this time Linda Green, when they recorded Shake Your Groove Thing and Reunited.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice focuses on the original Peaches and Herb with Close Your Eyes and For Your Love. Which song would you like to hear?
