The Andrews Sisters were America’s most popular female singing group. Patty, the youngest sister, was a loud and energetic blond who headed the group with her confident vocals. The middle sister was Maxene, a brunette, whose harmonic range gave the impression of four voices instead of three. Finally, completing the trio was the eldest, LaVerne, a strong willed red head with a witty sense of humor and an eye for fashion. In the 1940’s the Andrews Sisters were the most profitable stage attraction in the entire nation, earning $20,000 a week.

They were patriotic, clean, beautiful, God-fearing and amazingly talented.
They were from a different time. When Hollywood loved the country and the military, when socialism was scorned, when God was in schools and condoms were at drug stores.
Here is the Andrews Sisters singing “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.”

Rest in peace, Patty Andrews.

  1. Maxine went in 1968 and Luverne in 1995.Sooooooooooooooooo sorry to hear this.Would have liked to have met her.But as with Artie Shaw and John Wooden our paths never crossed

  2. 94 is a pretty good run.

  3. Many have tried to emulate them. Not the same as these three sparkling and amazing women.

    My three sisters sung together and made a record with another artist. It brought back memories of the Andrew Sisters.

    So, sad to hear this. But now they are singing their hearts out in Heaven. Just too sad but they brought smiles to many servicemen and women.

  4. I fell in love with those ladies as a young child watching Abbott and Costello movies.

    Ed Koch, Mayor Who Became a Symbol of NYC, Dies


  15. Who f’in cares about former Mayor Ed Koch? (How am I doing?) The city was the same cesspool in the 80’s as it was in the 70’s and late 60’s under his administration. He inherited a sewer from Beame but he perpetuated the same problem.
    Giuliani cleaned it up like Mr. Clean cleans a toilet. Hit it at its source.
