Paul Anka - Voice Your Choice

Paul Anka was born in Ottawa, the capital of Canada, on July 30, 1941 and began performing at age 12. His first label was RPM Records, for which he recorded a song called I Confess. That recording session in 1956 was financed by his father. Sadly nothing happened. One year later he signed with ABC-Paramount and his career exploded.

His first single for ABC-Paramount, Diana, went all the way to Number One and became a Gold record. He has achieved an impressive 53 songs on the Billboard chart with eleven in the Top Ten and three Gold records.

With such a vast chart history, it was a difficult decision to select just two songs for Voice Your Choice. But I did...

Treasure Island Oldies is pleased to spotlight Paul Anka on Voice Your Choice, in conjunction with our Music of Canada Special next week. Cast your vote for either (All Of A Sudden) My Heart Sings or It's Time To Cry. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
