The Shirelles - Voice Your Choice

The Shirelles were the most successful "Girl Group" of the Rock and Roll era!

Shirley Alston, Beverly Lee, Doris Kenner and Addie Harris met in junior high school and formed The Poquellos and were classmates of Joey Dee. During their tremedously successful career on Scepter Records, they charted 26 songs on the charts, five Top Ten hits with two of them reaching #1 and also achieved Gold Record status for one of them. Their songs were also recorded by other artists including The Beatles (Boys) and The Mamas and The Papas (Dedicated To The One I Love).

The Shirelles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

This week Treasure Island Oldies features two songs by The Shirelles on Voice Your Choice for you to cast your vote: Baby It's You OR Foolish Little Girl.

I imagine it'll be a nail biter this week wondering which song will be the winner. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
