Chubby Checker - Number One Top 5 Countdown on Treasure Island Oldies

In 1960, Chubby Checker recorded a cover version of a song written and originally done by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters. It was Chubby's version that took off. So much so in fact, it went all the way to Number One, first in 1960 and then again in 1962. No other record has achieved that feat.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, the Top Five Countdown features the year 1960. And in at Number One is Chubby Checker with The Twist. Enjoy this clip from the TV show American Bandstand.
