Bert Kaempfert - Voice Your Choice

Bert Kaempfert was born in Hamburg, Germany, October 23, 1923. Not only did he start his own orchestra, he also started writing and producing. His many worldwide hit compositions include "Strangers In The Night", "Spanish Eyes", "Wooden Heart", "Danke Schoen", among others.

He also produced the first Beatles recording session in Hamburg ("Cry For A Shadow"/"Ain't She Sweet"), initially hired as a backup musicians for Tony Sheridan.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents two of his Christmas instrumentals. Cast Your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page for either Holiday For Bells or Jingo Jango.

I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
