- Sep 15, 2005Another singer like that who seems to have dropped off the map is Dolly
I've been trying to find information about her for quite a while now. I
think that she is from New York, but I'm not sure about that. I have one
item about her living with her parents and working as a stenographer in
New York and auditioning for a vaudeville agent and becoming an
overnight success. Her name is all over Variety magazine in the 1920s.
She was performing in vaudeville and in cabarets and on the radio in the
1930s. Her picture appears on several pieces of sheet music. The last
mention I found of her was performing in Los Angeles with Nick Lucas on
April 18th, 1965. Dolly Kay may be a pseudonym, but can some one please
do a census search for her? I'd be curious to see what turns up.
