Gary U.S. Bonds - Voice Your Choice

Gary U.S. Bonds was born Gary Anderson June 6, 1939 in Jacksonville, Florida, and raised in Norfolk, Virginia. He was signed to the independent label, Legrand Records, and charted seven singles between 1960 and 1962. Out of those seven, 5 were Top Ten hits, and one reached Gold status (Quarter To Three)!

He disappeared from the charts until 1981, when Bruce Springsteen took him under his wings, and along with Miami Steve Van Zandt (aka Little Steven), produced three singles, most notably This Little Girl, which peaked at #11 in 1981.

This week on the Labour Day Back To School  End Of Summer Special on Treasure Island Oldies, we spotlight Gary U.S. Bonds on Voice Your Choice with School Is Out and School Is In.
