Paul Simon - Voice Your Choice

Born in Newark, New Jersey on October 13, 1941 and raised in Queens, New York, Paul Simon met Art Garfunkel while in high school. They recorded together as Tom & Jerry in 1957, Tico And The Triumphs, Paul also recorded as Jerry Landis. Remember his recording of The Lone Teen Ranger from 1963?

Paul Simon had a fantastic run of hits with Art Garfunkel. Together Simon & Garfunkel charted 17 times. Interestingly and perhaps surprisingly, Paul Simon scored 19 appearances on the charts as a post Simon & Garfunkel solo artist.

This week we spotlight two of Paul Simon's solo hits: Kodachrome and Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard. Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice Your Choice page.

We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
