Gary Lewis And The Playboys - Voice Your Choice

Gary Lewis, the son of comedian Jerry Lewis, was born July 31, 1945 in Brooklyn, New York. The Playboys were Al Ramsey and John West on guitars, David Walker on keyboards, and David Costell on bass. If you're wondering who played drums, it was Gary Lewis himself.

In the short time span of four years, from 1965 to 1969, they appeared on the Billboard chart fifteen times, and scored a Number 1 hit, This Diamond Ring, which also went Gold.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents Gary Lewis And The Playboys with two of their top hits:  Save Your Heart For Me and Everybody Loves A Clown.

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