About The Artist

A native of Wisconsin, she was a solo singer that appeared regularly on the WLS Barn Dance back in the mid-1930's. She was said to have preferred to sing the 'sweet old-fashioned' songs.

Republic's Musical Almanac— Left to right: The Maple City Four (Pat Patterson, Art Janes, Al Rice, Fritz Meissner); Sally Foster, soloist; Joe Fredkin, bass viol; Vic Smith, the Old Almanac Explorer; Jack Daly, guitar; Lew Klatt, accordion.

The photo we found for Republic's "Musical Almanac" had a bit of other details about the show. It was sponsored by the Republic Steel Corporation which made thnings like Republic Farm Fence, Barbed Wire, Studded "Y" Steel Posts, Galvanized roofing and other steel products for the farm.

She also recorded with another WLS Barn Dance group - the Hoosier Hot Shots.
