ABC Melbourne's breakfast presenter Red Symons sometimes has a segment before 6am called Porn Before Dawn. (some may know Red as the judge with the gong from the tv show Hey Hey, It's Saturday, or from even earlier years when he was made up like a painted whore as a member of the fantastic band Skyhooks)
Porn Before Dawn usually involves some risqué old music recordings.
I had never heard of Ruth Wallis but I found her recordings quite amusing. I really thought Stephen at Post Apocalyptic Bohemian would have had some information about her. Seems not.
Wikipedia does of course. Born Ruth Shirley Wohl in Brooklyn and died in 2007. She visited Australia and customs seized her recordings. As these things always go, the publicity ensured her shows did very well.
She has been honoured in Australia by the National Archives and included in a permanent exhibition called Memory of a Nation. I am appalled that I knew nothing of her. Now I do and so do you.
This was the favourite recording I heard of hers over the week of Porn Before Dawn. Quite a catchy melody. She could also do a good Latin accent, as I heard in another track. Can a gay man ever have more fun than spending time with a wicked glamourous woman? I've known a few, too few to be counted.
