Timi Yuro - Voice Your Choice

Timi Yuro was born Rosemary Timothy Yuro August 4, 1940 in Chicago, Illinois. She had an extremely powerful voice that some dubbed "Leather Lungs". Sadly she died at age 63 on March 30, 2004.

She had a fair number of songs reach the Hot 100 Billboard charts, 15 in fact. She also co-wrote Make The World Go Away with Eddy Arnold, who also had a hit with his recorded version.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents Timi Yuro with Hurt and What's A Matter Baby (Is It Hurting You), two of her signature songs.  Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
