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!)

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!
