When Edie (left) first met Stella and Elaine, on her first day in the typing pool at Snell Snell & Snell, she had no idea that within six months she'd be launched into an exciting second career in show business.
While it lasted, the Key Notes were cherished by a small and very specific audience: people neither ready for the raw, youthful energy of the Faith Tones nor for the towering glamor of the Tri-Tones.
Sadly, it all went south when Stella got a tempting offer to go on the road as a Florence Henderson impersonator and had the nerve to drag Elaine along with her as Ann B. Davis. For years, Edie was bitter, not least because she had had a bit of a name back in the pool for her spot-on Robert Reed.
