Glen Campbell - Voice Your Choice

Glen Campbell was born April 22, 1936 in Delight, Arkansas. As a guitarist and member of the famous Wrecking Crew studio musicians, Glen Campbell recorded with The Champs (Tequila) in 1960, The Hondells (Little Honda) in 1964, The Beach Boys (Pet Sounds album) and Sagittarius (My World Fell Down) in 1967. He went on to host his own TV show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour from 1968 to 1972.

He charted a whopping 75 times on the country music charts and 42 times on the Adult Contemporary charts. He also appeared on the pop charts 38 times between 1961 and 1981.

On August 30th, 2011 he released his final album, Ghost On The Canvas and also performed in concert on his Goodbye Tour. He has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and he was anxious to give his final performances while still able.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents Glen Campbell with two of his many, many hits. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Honey Come Back or Galveston.  I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
