Fabian - Voice Your Choice

Fabian, a late '50s heartthrob, was born Fabian Forte on February 6, 1943 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was only 14 when he was discovered because of his good looks and intriguing name. The man who discovered Fabian was Bob Marcucci, the owner of Chancellor Records. Simultaneously to his recording career, he also began an acting career in 1959 and starred in the movies Hound Dog Man and Ride The Wind Surf.

He appeared on the charts a total of ten times between 1959 and 1960. While not a lot, he managed to garner three Top Ten hits.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice features Fabian with two of his Top Ten hits for your votes: Tiger and Hound Dog Man.

Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice your Choice page. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
