Soiled Doves! Crayons To Perfume 7pm Wednsday

Besmirched beauties, demoralized dames and wild wild women putting the hump in hump day - today at 7pm Eastern, 4 Pacific right here on WFMU's Rock'n'Soul Ichiban and Crayons to Perfume! The girls sing about the sassier, and less classier side of being a lady. The Soiled Doves were originally women from the American Western Frontier - ladies who kept the men entertained in the baudy houses, behind closed doors. Women in the 50's and 60's frequently sang about the world's oldest profession and I've got shanty tramps, girls most likely to, Roberta Wolfson, Elaine Arthur, Bobby Gentry and even the Chiffons right here! So tune in! and then turn on to the Fringe Factory at 8pm, right after Crayons to Perfume!
