Her Radio Commercial

Not sure this qualifies for the Discography page, but what the hell. From the late 1940s and well into the mid-1950s, those of us who are, as they say, "a certain age" couldn't avoid hearing an endlessly repeated Carolina Rice radio commercial. It was sung by an anonymous young lady with a soft Southern drawl. Unbeknownst to listeners, the singer was Janette Davis.

"Nothin' could be finah than a box of Carolinah Rice / So nice
Caroliiiiiiii-na, the extra long grain rice.
Theah's three ways to serve rice to make it worthwhile,
Pressure-cooked, Suthern or Oriental style.
Serve it in a dozen ways, take mah advice,
Nothin's e-co-no-mi-cal as Carolinah Rice.
Caroliiiiiiii-nah, the extra long-grain Rice."

Janette called it "my biggest hit record."
