Let me go, lover

Kathy Kirby

RIP Miss Kathy Kirby, the UK's highest paid girl singer of the swinging sixties, who died today aged 72.

In her long career - from performing with Ambrose and his Orchestra, through coming second in Eurovision, to a rather sad episode with a nervous breakdown and bankruptcy in the 70s - Miss Kirby never quite hit the international scene in the same way as British rivals like Petula Clark, nor similar US vocal stylists like Doris Day, but nevertheless always has a place in our hearts here at Dolores Delargo Towers...

RIP, a lovely lady.
