Born July 15, 1913,
in Wheeling, W. Va., Nancy Martin's famly (her father is a doctor) moved to New
Martinsville, a large town, if you include its suburb---Pittsburgh, where "li'l
ole Nancybelle first became interested in boys and pianos in that order.
After the customary number of years, and more than the usual number of dates,
Nancy graduated from hish school and then Western College, Oxford, Ohio, where
she studied voice, hoping someday to become a voice-president, no doubt.
In 1934 she got on the radio in Pittsburgh, and although the locale is now Chicago,
she hasn't been able to shake the wireless yet---as if any of her thousands of
air-admirers would ever want her to.
Nancy's specialty is her own interpretation of popular songs with interpolated
recitations which she writes herself. Perhaps the most requested song she sings
is her famous Christmas version of "Santa, Bring My Mommy Back to Me."
When she discusses the latest in fashion hints, the cast says, "Let's get
fancy with Nancy."
She is a very attractive brunette with brown eyes and curly hair. She has a smile
that's as fresh as a Spring morning. She weighs 115 lbs. in her nylon feet, likes
red dresses, men, new shoes, men, composing songs, men, Red Cross work, men, good
books, and men.
