Lipstick and Pearls

Sammie J

Sammie J with an hour of Lipstick and Pearls

Tuesday | Sunday | Monday

"Lipstick & Pearls is an hour dedicated to the female bandleaders, musicians, and vocalists of the first half of the 20th century - pioneering ladies who went on to influence a generation and beyond.

Featuring the likes of The Andrews Sisters, Ivy Benson, Pearl Bailey, Julia Lee, Vera Lynn, Dinah Shore, and many more.

Sammie J likes nothing more than uncovering the lesser-known female voices of the era. Her show explores the archives of swing, jazz, blues, and gospel with a smattering of history and facts about the ladies in the spotlight thrown in for good measure.

In everyday life, Sammie J is the wife of our very own Dave Dawes from Sounds of the Forties.

An HR professional by day she spends many of her weekends out and about with Dave at vintage events all over the country dressing the part and partaking of a stroll or two."
