The Chiffons - Voice Your Choice


The Chiffons, one of the early Girl Groups, were from the Bronx, New York. They started out as a singing group while they were still in high school. The Chiffons were Judy Craig, Barbara Lee Jones (born on 5/16/1947), Patricia Bennett (born on 4/7/1947) and Sylvia Peterson (born on 9/30/1946). Sadly, Barbara Lee Jones died of a heart attack on 5/15/1992 (age 44). 

They initially recorded as the Four Pennies on the Rust Records label but without much success. When they signed with Laurie Records, their career took off, beginning with their debut single, which reached Number One on the charts.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents The Chiffons with their two signature hits for your votes.

Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either He's So Fine or One Fine Day. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
