Blonde Bombshells of 1943 archiveBlonde Bombshells of 1943 looks back at the early years of the Blonde Bombshells, the most glamorous swing band in the land.

What Elizabeth learns from her memories is simple; inside every respectable middle-aged woman, there's a Blonde Bombshell screaming to get out. Blonde Bombshells of 1943 website.
