Oh, she's gonna shimmy till her garters break

There has been a slew of birthdays of interest lately - yesterday we tipped our hats to Carol Channing who has reached the grand young age of 95 (and whose special day was shared with Franz Schubert, Tallulah Bankhead, Anna Pavlova, Jean Simmons and Derek Jarman).

Today's birthdays include such odd bed-fellows as Dame Clara Butt, Clark Gable, Renata Tebaldi, Peter Sallis (Wallace & Gromit), Hildegarde and Lisa-Marie Presley.

But, regardless, it is to tomorrow's birthday girl we turn for for our wake-up call on this Tacky Music Monday - to get us on our way to the delights of work is our much-missed Patron Saint of bellowing Miss Elaine Stritch!

Here, she steals the limelight (of course) on the Lena Zavaroni Show, even in the company of the effervescent hostess, ballerina Wayne Sleep and the uber-talented George Chisolm - it's All that Jazz!

Oh, how we miss Miss Stritch (2nd February 1925 – 17th July 2014)

More Stritchy


  1. I think it was about 8 years ago we saw Elaine Strich at the Soffotel in new York. My friend was a concierge there...said she was an absolute riot. We saw her in the lounge. She loved her gay boys and a very good strong libation.....which she could put several away.

  2. Lovely to see Ms Stritch, but mainly that is the gayest Safety Gay I've ever seen,
