I am just going to give you a brief summary of Alma Cogan, her Fan Club Story rather than the usual Biography.

Alma had a short career of about 14 years. Records, Radio Broadcasts, Variety shows, World Tours and Television, were Alma’s life.

Alma Cogan was more than just a recording vocalist, Alma was an all round Entertainer. Alma’s Television shows are a testament to a truly wonderful personality that had warmth and charm throughout her many Television Performances.

Alma was known for her fabulous gowns, never appearing in the same dress twice.

They were the talk of the showbiz world, along with her star studded party’s

Of course Alma recorded many records throughout her career, “Dreamboat” being a number one in 1955. Ten years later 1965 a number one with “Tennessee Waltz” sadly not in England, but in Sweden. Between those recordings she had success, with many of her recordings making the top twenty. Alma was accompanied on her early recordings by the Frank Cordell Orchestra, on later recordings Alma was accompanied by the Stan Foster Orchestra. Stan was to become Alma’s Musical Director throughout her recording career, and personal appearances. Alma travelled the World, with her bubbly personality appearing in variety shows, and making television appearances, from Australia to Japan.
