The Shirelles - Voice Your Choice

The Shirelles were the most successful "Girl Group" of the Rock and Roll era!

Shirley Alston, Beverly Lee, Doris Kenner and Addie Harris met in junior high school and formed The Poquellos and were classmates of Joey Dee. During their tremendously successful career on Scepter Records, they appeared 26 times on the charts: five Top Ten hits with two of them reaching #1 and they also achieved Gold Record status for one of them. Their songs were even recorded by other artists including The Beatles (Boys) and The Mamas and The Papas (Dedicated To The One I Love).

The Shirelles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

This week Treasure Island Oldies features two songs by The Shirelles on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Baby It's You or Foolish Little Girl.

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