Watching the Lady of Charm

Watching the Lady of Charm
Photo from the Detroit News. Watching the Lady of Charm - the first cooking show.
I am still watching cooking shows; I still sit this close, and now the sound is turned up really loud. The only thing missing is my Do Bee.

Edythe Fern Melrose, better known as the "Lady of Charm."

From The Detroit News: "
Another movie hostess was Edythe Fern Melrose, better known as the "Lady of Charm." She started her career in the 1920s as the first woman to manage a radio station. During the 1940s she hosted the "Lady of Charm" show, which moved to TV as a cooking and talk show with topics for women. It ran from 1948 until 1960.

In 1948, she built her "House O' Charm" on the shore of Lake St Clair. It was the first home to be built for testing all the products before she recommended them. Later, she added "The Charm Kitchen" which aired daily, and "House O' Fashion," a weekly show."
