Oh, Dona!

dona's turntable

From LP cover lover, Jeff Missinne:  Here’s another of my favorite past pin-ups, DONA DRAKE.  Cute, vivacious, exotic, and frankly sexy as hell, in mostly B movies from the 40’s and early 50’s.  Dona was the singing leader of an all-girl band in the late 30’s, under the name Rita Rio, and appeared then in a handful of short subjects.  (It was typical for her to sing a jive version of “La Cucaracha” while leading her band with a baton in her left hand and pulling up her gown with her right so she could tap dance at the same time…)  She’s got a turntable AND a mike here, so I’m guessing the machine she’s using is a disc recorder/player like a Wilcox-Gay Recordette or similar.  (That’s for those anoraks who are looking at the turntable and not Dona!)

Sheena was a punk rocker

This is Irish McCalla, TV’s original “Sheena, Queen of the Jungle,” at home with her hi-fi.   Thanks to long-time LP cover lover, Jeff for sending this one in and writing, “I checked the whole category to make sure you didn’t already have it…tough job, huh?”  That’s a lot of cheesecake to get through Jeff!
