The few surviving installments of the legendary syndicated old-time radio program, in which Jean King, as Lonesome Gal, fashioned a fifteen-minute-daily persona as the kind-of virtual girl friend to thousands of lonely male listeners in the 1950s. Her trademarks included brief talks between music selections, talks that usually (but not always) ended in a conversational reference to the coming song's title. She even cut a record of her theme song, "Lonesome Gal"---as did Margaret Whiting, Dinah Shore, and Teresa Brewer.
She habitually appeared in a cat-eye shaped mask for personal appearances to preserve the mystique at the height of her show's popularity. Created while she was herself lonely in Dayton, Ohio, after a none-too-successful try as an actress in California, King brought the show to Los Angeles and syndicated it around the country with the help of the "Dragnet" radio producer she eventually married.
