Casual Friday: Kitty from Kansas City

Friday, April 19, 2013
Loretta reports:

Before the Beatles, before Elvis Presley, before even Frank Sinatra, the singer who made girls swoon was Rudy Vallee.

Along with love songs and the blues, he performed the occasional novelty number.  One of my personal favorites, because I appreciate clever comic lyrics, is “When Yuba Plays the Rumba on the Tuba.”  (Try singing along.)

But “Kansas City Kitty” is a close second on a similar theme (the not-so-intellectual), and this clip features Betty Boop, in her first appearance.
