: You write:
A woman usually came on singing "luckies taste better, they're cleaner, fresher, smoother" and this guy's voice came on saying "and here's why..." and he'd launch into the commercial. other versions had the woman singing: "if you want better taste from your cigarette, Lucky Strike is the brand to get;...it's the toasted cigarette"
I have been listening to the shows from 1952 and 1953, and I cannot answer your question.....sorry! The woman singer sounds like Patti Page, Teresa Brewer, Jo Stafford, Rosemary Clooney, or, even Gisele MacKenzie (a little), but who was she? I think Don introduced her as Dorothy Collins in one of the ads, but my memory is not as good as it used to be.
