The Kingston Trio - Voice Your Choice

The Kingston Trio formed in San Francisco, California, where they got their big break during an eight month gig at the Purple Onion. Dave Guard, Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds were the originators of the folk music craze of the 1960s.

During their impressive career, they had 17 songs on the Top 100 chart, with five hitting the Top Twenty, including a Number One Gold record too. In addition, five out of their first six albums went all the way to #1 for a total of 46 weeks!

Treasure Island Oldies spotlights The Kingston Trio on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either A Worried Man or Tijuana Jail. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
