The Applejacks - Voice Your Choice

The Applejacks were actually an instrumental studio band formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by Dave Appell. They also provided the instrumental backup on the campy Halloween classic, Dinner With Drac, by John Zacherle.

Dave Appell later became the producer of all the Tony Orlando & Dawn hit records. But in 1958 and 1959 Dave and the rest of the studio musicians appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 charts three times. And this week we're got two of them vying for your votes.

Cast Your Vote at the Voice Your Choice Page for either Mexican Hat Rock or Rocka-Konga by The Applejacks.

I'll play the song that wins in the 3rd hour of next week's Annual Instrumental Gems Wordless Wonders Special on Treasure Island Oldies.
