Grace was a long time solo artist on WLS. She actually sang
on the first WLS program back in 1924. Radio station promo
announcements would often call her the '...girl with a million
friends.' That phrase actually originated a number of years earlier
from her days of appearing on Broadway.
Had a knack of making friends and connecting with the audience
so that they'd never forget her. Secret? Not really, just being
friendly, genuine and sincere.
The WLS Family Album of 1934 described her singing as "...she just
walks right into your home and into your heart."
Once dubbed the "Bringin' Home the Bacon Girl" as she once did
a song by that same name and it got her a lot of requests to do
it again and it became one of her most popular numbers.
