Kate Smith
(1907 – 1986)

Kate Smith Puzzle

Music, Variety, Drama, and Comedy (1931-1958)

Kate SmithCalled the "first lady of radio by Time Magazine, Kate Smith had a long-running radio program that showcased her voice and promoted her to great stardom. Alternately called The Kate Smith Hour, Kate Smith Sings, Kate Smith and her Swanee Music, Kate Smith Matinee, and The Kate Smith New Star Revue, The Kate Smith Show proved to be a venue to launch many new talented performers. The Aldrich Family got their starts by doing skits on her show.

Kate Smith with flagKate had a bumpy start in show business. Rising from the depths of 1920s vaudeville, she often played the butt of the joke due to her large size. After years of humiliating comments and jokes at her expense, Kate was discovered by a young talent scout, Ted Collins, who became her good friend and life long manager. Splitting their profits 50/50, Collins boosted Kate to great stardom, making her millions of dollars in the process. Collins proved to be a great manager, handling all of her affairs without ever compromising her dignity or grace. Never again was she on the wrong end of the joke.

Kate Smith went on to be known for her fantastic voice, a contralto that could break glass and make the whole building shake. Her program was well received and popularized for its great skits, as well as music and drama performances. Many great stars graced her stage, such as Dizzy Dean, Jackie Gleason, Les Brown, Dorothy Lamour, Ed Sullivan, Veronica Lake, Fred MacMurray, Gene Kelley, and Al Jolson.

    Will always love her rendition of God Bless America!

    Art Ciccarelli

    Happy birthday, Kate Smith (1907-1986)! This Virginia lass had no musical training, but she became one of the most popular singers of the 20th Century. During WWII she raised $600 MILLION dollars in war bonds, far exceeding any other individual. Recently, professional sports teams in New York and Philadelphia went all-Stalin on her, attempting to erase her from the popular mind and long-held traditions of patriotism, one their reasons being a song she sang that Paul Robeson also sang for its satirical assessment of the color line. We are still waiting for Robeson to be erased from history as well. Herewith, a birthday celebration from Otr Cat.
