In The Still Of The Night

Broadcast: 1st February 1951
Starring: Jean King

Jean King was the lonesome gal, who went from rags to riches with the show. King had a sexy voice that was perfect for the role – and especially for its male audience. She began the show with a sultry solo, "Sweetie, no matter what anybody says, I love you better than anybody in the whooooole world". Then, she sang and told her listeners to shake off their shoes and get ready to relax.

The musical interludes were interspersed with her own brand of chatter – sexy and intimate. The audience loved it and wanted to know more about her. But, her identity was kept a secret until 1953 – before that King wore a mask to all events – which only served to heighten the anticipation of her identity.
