Marty Robbins - Voice Your Choice

Marty Robbins was born Martin David Robinson in Glendale, Arizona on September 26, 1925. Sadly he died of a heart attack at age 57 on December 8, 1982.

During his very successful career, he charted no less than 94 hits on the country charts between 1952 and 1983. He also had a passion for stock cars, which he raced, and he also appeared in the movies Road To Nashville and Guns Of A Stranger.

On the pop charts, he appeared 24 times including three Top Ten hits and received one Gold Record.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice features Marty Robbins. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Ruby Ann or Don't Worry (Like All The Other Times). I'll play the winner during the 3rd hour of next week's show.
