Katherine Laverne Starks - born 21st July, 1922 (Dougherty, Oklahoma) - 90 today; one of the most popular singers in the first half of the 1950s, before rock'n'roll took hold, and still performing this year according to wikipedia.
'I'll Never Be Free' (1950) - the first of several singles she recorded with Tennessee Ernie Ford (they were both with Capitol Records)
Jimmy Bryant - guitar; Speedy West - steel guitar
1952 appearance on the "Colgate Comedy Hour" with (from 2:00) one of her biggest hits - 'Wheel of Fortune'
alternatively, "all in the best possible taste" as Kenny Everett would have said, there's a Scopitone film of the song, presumably from the early 60s. I wonder if the artists concerned ever watched these films after they were finished
Wikipedia also informs that Billie Holiday said Kay was "the only white woman who could sing the blues"
